Thinking of all the people working hard to get to that next point. The chase.
Quite often we can get bogged down. We become impatient, frustrated, restless. We long for the result. The end game.
Looking/saving for a house.
Bummed because we got turned down for a grand opportunity.
Worn down by another crappy date.
Stressed over the final product of a creative project.
In this time we miss out on the joy of the process - we forget that we're learning great things along the way, connecting with amazing people, being exposed to new ideas.
If we remember to enjoy the process and be grateful with where we're at, a far more enjoyable experience can be had.
We weigh less of our happiness on results and we learn to live a happier, more mindful life, moment to moment.
And in that time, it can open ourselves to more opportunities than we couldn't have imagined.
