The video and thought this weekend are about the journey of life… finding happiness as we go along… and not focusing on the “destination” as success. It’s true in life and in building a business.
Don’t focus on “arriving” or being “discovered” or hitting the million dollar mark or whatever else your end goal might be. Goals are wonderful to have, but don’t get so focused on them that you don’t acknowledge the joys and accomplishments along the way–enjoy the path you walk to reach them.
Shifting your perspective so you enjoy the process of creating success makes it so much easier and less stressful. You’re not a failure if you haven’t reached your biggest goals yet. If you’re a step closer than you were yesterday, that’s success!
Celebrate every success, no matter how small, and no matter how many other things aren’t working yet or what other storms are surrounding you.
“Life’s not about waiting for the storms to pass…It’s about learning to dance in the rain.” ~Vivian Greene
As I was looking at quotes to include with this week’s inspirational video, I found a beautiful piece written by Shannon Spaunburg. If your life has felt difficult, challenging lately I encourage you to take a few minutes to read it: http://www.motivateus.com/stories/journey.htm
Oh, and here’s the video! Think about life as a journey while you watch.
