“Some people feel uncomfortable having what they want. Receiving, or learning to live with your creation, is an essential phase of completion and hence of the creative process. It is the ability to receive the fruits of your endeavors.” -Robert Fritz
It is a common tendency to spend so much of our time trying to advance to the next stage of attainment, that we often forget how our current accomplishments were yesterday’s dreams.
In our moments of anticipation, we imagine ourselves feeling immense joy upon reaching our goals. Yet, when we arrive at the destination we once craved, we often disparage the significance of our success as if it were a matter of principle.
Here’s today’s two cents:
There are two sides to success: the physical and the psychological. The physical side is composed of the tangible results you achieve. The psychological side consists of the thoughts and feelings you have about those results.
There’s no purpose in pursuing physical success if you don’t allow yourself the psychological freedom to emotionally participate in your achievements.
You don’t have to be miserable if you fail, but if you’re going to succeed, then you might as well enjoy it.
