It is so so simple to get tunnel vision. You see your goals stretched out before you and you can loose grasp of your purpose, your reason for doing your 30 Day Challenge to begin with. Sometimes you have to stop and remind yourself why you’re working on your 30 Days. You have to remember why you set your goals to begin with.
“It’s not about the goal. It’s about growing to become the person that can accomplish that goal.” –Tony Robbins
Focusing on the process is just as important as focusing on the goal and the success. You have to decide you want to grow and not just finish. You have to be clear that you want to change and learn and develop because that is where really succeed. That is where you really make the biggest life changes.
Don’t get me wrong. Reaching a goal is awesome. And it’s reason for celebration and I love every second of knowing I reached my goals. But when I look back again at my life, it’s the path I remember. And it’s the path that brought the biggest life lessons. That is what changed me.
Remembering this makes it easier to move forward. On days when my 30 Day goals feel too far away or too hard to reach, I remind myself that the process is what counts. And when I have failures and problems, I remind myself that these are my chances to learn and grow and change.
It’s the change and development that creates success. Don’t get hung up on your ultimate goals, look for the process first. Be the person who can change herself. Because once you can change yourself, then you can change the world.
