“The purpose of a goal is not to achieve the goal. The purpose of a goal It is to become more.”
There’s irony when we think about defining moments. When we forecast into the future, we build up in our minds that act of finally accomplishing the goal is the ultimate. Despite the achievement being full of excitement, it’s not what we value the most. It’s the icing on the cake.
The reason being – achieving a goal is not directly related to finding what we know as “fulfillment”.
A dopamine hit comes when we win, hit the goal, or get the promotion.
But the fulfillment, the ever lasting feeling of satisfaction, is found in the process. The act of becoming something more. It’s the obstacles we overcame along the way. The deep relationships we forged with others. It’s the trials and tribulations, and the lessons learned. The early mornings, and late nights.
The purpose of a goal is not to achieve it. The purpose of a goal is to become a better version of ourselves. Where we find excitement from the achievement, we find fulfillment in the journey.
