What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals. ~Henry David Thoreau
So often we get so caught up on the prize at the finish line – achieving the goal – that we loose site of the journey along the way. We forget that the goal isn’t the only thing that’s happening while we strive for the end. While we are working tirelessly each day to achieve the big goals we set for ourselves, we become great too.
Strive for the end, but pay attention to what you are becoming as you head toward the finish line too.
Really wonderful advice working towards our goals is really rewarding! I would also add that they change us in that they give us newfound confidence to run out and achieve new goals! Great post!!
