It seems like it’s human nature to want a certain result “now”. We want that amazing body, we want to be rich, we want that beautiful house or an amazing spouse. We want all those things but forget that if we just magically received them without working for them we’d have no idea how to hold onto them.
It’s the process of working towards getting those amazing things where we become the person who has earned them.
It’s why so many people who win the lottery go broke. They haven’t put in the hours of work, the research, time spent on earning that money. They are not yet the person they need to be who knows what to do with it, how to keep it and how to make even more.
THE KNOWLEDGE GAP
Imagine being gifted the body of your dreams… You wake up one day and you have the 6 pack abs, you’re jacked, slim or strong, you can run a marathon no problem….however you picture it.
How do you hold onto it?
What exercises would you be doing, what would you eat, how many times a week would you exercise? You’d have no idea how to keep this new body you’ve always wanted, in a month it would all be gone.
BUT, if you set out to work towards your fitness goals…go through the process….. you do some things;
- you read about exercising
- listen to podcasts by fitness experts
- you start cooking your own meals
- tracking your calories
- buy a workout program
- put in the necessary work in the gym and go through the process of achieving it
You now know what it takes.
Do what you’ve always done and you’ll get what you’ve always got – Sue Knight
It’s during this process you become a new version of yourself and it’s in this process where the real result is attained. You no longer want to become fit, you ARE fit and you improve further because you have the knowledge and experience of achieving it.
Oh, and if life got in the way and you couldn’t work out for a couple months, you’d have no problem getting yourself back in shape because you know what it took to get there.
You’ve now filled that gap, that void of knowledge of how to get from A->B.
The process of achieving your goals and dreams is sometimes going to suck. It’s going to be difficult and challenging, but the process will shape you into the person that can reach that next level.
Every Next Level In Life Will Demand A Different You – Unknown
The process will require you to become more creative and more resilient. You’ll need to seek out new information, adapt and refine.
By tackling new challenges you have no choice but to learn and grow. You’ll start to think about new ways to approach obstacles. Through reading and learning, your mind will automatically start to take these new references to help adapt to the challenges ahead.
The Process is the Result
Learning to embrace and appreciate the process is the only way forward.
You might find the end result is not even the thing you’re looking for. Through the process, you might find the result you wanted is not big enough, not scary enough, honestly, you probably will. The person you are today can’t see what that new version of yourself see’s on the other side.
But by failing, learning, adapting and overcoming, the process will shape you into the person who has
EARNED your wealth.
BUILT an incredible relationship
A new and improved version of you.
