(SELF) Enjoy The Process of Achieving Your Goals
We all set goals in life to achieve a desired outcome. Setting goals is the base to any person working towards their dreams and aspirations. However, a lot of people have a limiting belief where they feel that the process needs to be painful but the goal or outcome will provide them with the happiness to offset the pain. Is this a right way to live with your happiness only tied to the outcome?
For example, if you want to lose weight and you set a target of shedding 30 pounds. Instead of continuously focusing on the 30 pound goal, you can break down your bigger goal into smaller daily goals where you can track your progress on a more micro level and enjoy seeing your body improve day by day.
Personally, I suffered through social anxiety growing up. I could not strike up a conversation with anyone and lived the first 16 years of my life in a shell. However, when I realised that I need to get over the fear of interacting with others, I did not become confident overnight. Instead, I decided that I would take baby steps like talk to one new person every single day so that over time, my self confidence improves. As a result, I fell in love with the process of improving with every interaction and experience in life instead of focusing on being the best.
In the video below, I talk about my experience of falling in love with the process.
