GREATNESS TAKES TIME: What some people fail to understand is that “overnight success” can take many years and it’s more about the journey than it is about the destination. Whenever you seek quick results, fast cash, easy money, or you expect life to give you “something” for “nothing,” you slow down the process. Lasting success takes time and more than anything, remember to enjoy the journey that leads you there.
After all, we don’t listen to a song just to get to the end – we listen for the experience of the emotion it evokes as we sing along. We don’t read a book just to get to the end – we immerse ourselves so we can “get lost” in the story. We don’t start out on a trip and fantasize about coming home again – we go on a trip to create memories and have new and joyful experiences. Life is no different. It’s your journey that defines it.
As such, let that journey be one that is congruent to what is most meaningful to you. By doing so, you will not only make a greater difference to more people, you will find the success and greatness you are seeking.
