While we all are at different stages of life, one common thing that we share is – not taking time to value the journey we’re on while constantly looking towards the destination. This is, in fact, one of the main causes, because of which, many entrepreneurs, and business leaders remain unhappy no matter what type of earnings they make.
Whether you are a success story and have achieved everything in your life you set at the beginning of your journey, or you are just a startup and trying your best to get close to your goals, the hustle and bustle of your daily life certainly can draw out life, and you may forget to value your personal and professional journey.
Across the globe, there are mutli-millionaires, who make sizable earnings and are blessed with beautiful families. However, somewhere down the line, they are miserable. Believe me, I’ve come across many wealthy women and men, who feel they have missed a major part in the life and their happiness is at an all-time low.
Of course, that’s not their mistake. However, they somehow forgot to value their journey they were on. One thing that can be referred as the root of the problem is consistently striving to hit the next target, without appreciating or enjoying what has been achieved. What’s the point of dominating the game in the marketplace, if unable to enjoy it?
Although I’m not a subject-matter expert, I am beginning to learn the importance of appreciating and valuing the things I’ve achieved no matter how small. I now believe that everyone should stop for a moment and take time to value the journey he or she is currently on. This is a mantra I follow and I’m now proud to say that I am able to find happiness in the things I was unable to prior.
I know, like myself, many of you find it difficult to value the journey with so many trials and tribulations along the way, especially as you believe you are not in a place where you wanted to be. However, I would venture to disagree. No matter what you have lost or what you have gained, you should always try to appreciate the experience of what you have. Don’t forget, no matter how challenging your situation is, there is most likely another human that would absolutely love to be in your shoes, it is just the nature of humanity. If we can simply try to be happy and appreciate (and yes, it does sound cliché) what we have, it truly will provide us a more bountiful and peaceful life. This is also a journey. You nor I will never come close to being perfect at it, but the more we try it along the way, the better off we become. Once you do this, your mood, happiness and quality of life and work will become enhanced and you will be motivated to achieve even greater success.
