Love the Journey and the Destination – LOP027

Love the Journey and the Destination

Have you hard the expression, “You need to fall in love with the process, not the goal”.

That’s only partially correct.

While it’s highly motivating to fall in love with the process, you never want to be attached to the goal. You don’t want to be emotionally dependant upon the goal.

You want to fall in love with the doing, the taking action, accepting, trusting, and believing that your choices and actions are leading towards your desired goal.

Love is an important emotion to drive your motivation in accomplishing goals.

It puts you in an open and receptive state. Feeling the love of the process will make it easier to slip into flow state, in which you lose track of time and space and simply do the work.

Love makes working on your desired goal easier. The more you focus on the doing – the present moment “journey”, and loving that process – there will be no attachment to outcome.
