Success and the Journey Towards the Goal
Hey, I’m Talkin’ Here, Success & the Journey Towards the Goal
Humor, Inspiration & Motivation – hosted by Steve Rizzo
A show about empowerment. This is a show that can, and if you pay attention, will take you to a better place, personally and professionally. No brag just fact. This show is brought to you by The Bob Project and Conversations with Bob.
Here’s something to consider. Let’s say your goal is to become a Vice President of a big company. After many years of intense stress, worry and an avalanche of emotional, mental and physical overload, you finally achieve your goal, along with all the wealth and prestige that comes with it. Is this success?
If you consult a dictionary, the answer would be yes. Webster’s Dictionary defines successes as follows. 1. The favorable or prosperous termination of attempts or endeavors. 2. The attainment of wealth, position, honors, or the like. I think it’s amazing that the words “happy” or “happiness “or “joy” are not included in the definition of the word “success.”
Unfortunately, our conventional definition of success is simply achieving the goal. Not enough emphasis is placed on the value of experiencing and enjoying the journey, building character, and learning life lessons along the way.
