You have a dream. The big holiday is coming. The vacation you’ve worked so hard for is on the horizon. You dream, you plan, you prepare, you save and you wait. You wait and your dream feels like it’s never going to get here. Then the big day arrives, the big moment you’ve been yearning for…..and then it’s passed. So now what?
It’s great to set goals, to enjoy a
dream fulfilled, to prepare for the fabulous holiday or to reach a new plateau.
The problem is that it’s so easy to feel a big let-down after the fact. The
reality is that your aspirations should just be a step along your journey, not
an end in itself. Your life is made up of all those small moments that led up
to your target and all those small moments have the potential to be fabulous
memories. Memories that you can make each day as you head on to your next big
goal or dream. All those moments strung together – that’s what makes up your
life. So the secret to lifelong happiness? Pay just as much attention to those
day-to-day moments and all the steps to reach your goals. Focus on getting
there rather than on being there.
