Daily Mindset
"Excitement comes from the achievement. Fulfillment comes from the journey."
Winning the award is exciting.
Fulfillment is looking back at the hard work put in.
There’s irony when think we think about defining moments. We build up in our minds that accomplishing that "thing" will be the ultimate. And when we get there, hell yeah will it be exciting. But the podium does not change who we are.
The real defining moments are the experiences that led up to those big achievements. The trials, the tribulations, the lessons learned… the early mornings and late nights. The deep and unforgettable relationships we build through the blood, sweat, and tears.
The dopamine hit comes when we win, hit the goal, or get the promotion.
The ever-lasting fulfillment comes from the journey.
