Enjoy The Journey

Everyone has heard the famous line from Ralph Waldo Emerson

“It’s not the Destination, It’s the journey.”

And as cliche as it might be these days, there is some truthfulness in “trusting the process”. 

The journey is where we spend most of our time. The destination is a dot at the end of a line, while the journey is the actual line.

Research suggests that 92 percent of people who set goals fail to achieve them.

Goals are important, but they oftentimes change or not even work out. 

Winners and losers have the same goals. Winners fall in love with the process (the journey).

Not being reliant on a money goal, or a status goal, but rather being mission-based. 

A desire.

Psychologists at the Stanford School of Business conducted studies involving over 1,600 people who had different goals and found that those who thought of success as a journey vs. their end destination, saw a greater change and personal growth which just fueled them to continue with their other goals. 

We’ve all made short sighted mistakes. Outrageous expectations, timelines, and goals lead to burnout, failed businesses, and partnerships.

If you don’t wake up loving the process, then that dream is not worth pursuing. The money, or whatever else is on the achievement list, will come. 

This is because anything is achievable when you break it down into small enough pieces. 

It’s better to sleep in your car because you want to explore – not because you have to.

Here are 3 areas that can help improve your chances of success.


  • Start with a desire, what do you want?
  • Take any small step in that direction.
  • Each day, think of three small moments you’re thankful for that day.


  • Be people first.
  • Cut out toxic relationships.
  • Say thank you.
  • Focus more on others’ intentions.


  • Take risks, but don’t bite off more than you can chew.
  • Set long-term financial goals ( 5-10 years) not short-term ones.
  • Start with manual processes before scale.
  • Anything good takes time, but if you get started on small changes today you just planted one hell of a seed.
