We can become so attached to a single desired outcome that we feel lost and devastated when we don’t get that one result!
If there is only one way to succeed, then disappointment will inevitably loom.
Focus instead on the process:
· What is it that is driving you toward your desired outcome?
· What are your passions and values?
· Are the steps you’re taking toward your goal in line with those things?
If you are growing and learning and living close to your values and passions all along the way, any outcome you achieve will feel worthwhile—even if it is not your ideal.
It won’t be time wasted; it will be a life well lived.
When your process aligns with your values and passions, you’ll succeed in myriad ways.
But, if you are failing repeatedly en route to your ultimate goal, it could be because what you think you want doesn’t align with your values. Might be time to adapt your goal!
