It’s Not the Destination, It’s the Journey

Earl Nightingale defined Success as:  The progressive realization of a worthy ideal!

Think about these words and what they mean for a few moments!

Progressive is happening or developing gradually or in stages; proceeding step by step.

Realization is the fulfillment or achievement of something desired or anticipated AND an act of becoming fully aware of something as a fact.

Worthy is deserving effort, attention, or respect.

According to James Allen, an Ideal is “an idea you’ve fallen in love with!”

Are you in love with your idea?  Are you going after what you really want?  OR are you going after what you think you can get…..or what someone else wants you to want……or maybe even what someone else wants?

Success is not the destination – it’s not the endpoint.  Success is constantly making progress toward that which you seek.  It’s setting your sights on something you desire so much, you are willing to go through whatever it takes to achieve it…..just one step at a time.

You may trip.  You may fall.  You may make mistake after mistake.  But if you stand up, dust yourself off, learn from the experience and keep pressing on….you will make progress…..and that makes you successful.
