I’m sure some people might not agree with the statement that success is a journey and not the destination because they view success based on results only.
When it comes to success, the end doesn’t justify the means rather the means justify the end.
When you look at the scenario of an athlete that wins a gold medal in the Olympics, what made him win was the constant practice he had and how well he ran to win the race.
Most people do not know about the process the athlete went through to achieve that good result.
Success is a habit
Success is what you do every day. Success is not something you just achieve in a day without preparation.
Success comes as a result of taking consistent action over some time.
The most important part of being successful is the aspect of preparation.
For instance, if you have 2 athletes and one of the athletes trains 4 hours daily while the other athlete trains 4 hours a week.
The athlete that practices more has more chances of winning if both athletes compete.
There is always room to achieve more success
Life will always present you with opportunities to move to the next level. It is left for you to take advantage of it or not.
If you see success as a journey, then you will know that you need to move from where you are now to the next level.
If you see success as a destination, you will remain where you are and be comfortable there. This is not good for you because in life if you are not moving forward, it means you are moving backward.
It’s either you are progressing or retrogressing in life.
Success journey is a rough one
The success journey is a rough one. The process isn’t smooth, you will always be faced with challenges.
What makes you successful is your ability to overcome the different challenges you face.
The challenges you will face will be many because it’s going to come from everywhere, your friends, family, competitors, environment, policies, and even your mind.
So you see that there are a lot of things to contend with. Don’t let anyone deceive you that the success journey is a smooth one.
Your journey to success will be rough and I want you to have it at the forefront of your mind. When you have this mindset you will be prepared to face whatever comes your way.
But if you have a mindset that the journey will be smooth, you might give up easily when you are faced with challenges.
There is no shortcut to success
There is no shortcut to success in life. You have to go through the process to achieve the results you want.
Some people think they can find a cheat code to succeed in life. Sorry to burst your bubble, but life is not a game where people get cheat codes. You need to Follow the process through.
Any form of success you achieve with cheating cannot last because success is a journey. When you get to a level, you need the capacity to move to the next level.
That is why you will see that most people that win the money lottery go broke after some time because they did not learn the normal process of success.
