The Journey Is More Important Than the Destination

Oliver Goldsmith once said, “Life is a journey that must be travelled no matter how bad the roads and accommodations.”

We always hear those around us tell us to focus on the goal. But the journey that leads us to our dreams is what helps bring the change in us.

Remember that the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. It’s imperative that you take the first step—not toward your destination, but for the change you are looking for.

Even if during the journey you don’t make significant improvements, walk the road anyway. You’re bound to learn things, meet new people and look back on the past with a smile on your face.

We’re so focused on what the past has given us that we tend to forget what the future has in store. Years down the road, you will look back at your former self and smile sheepishly, knowing that there are important life lessons you’ve learned. These lessons can never be taught in schools or institutions. No amount of courses can prepare us for life.

Life takes us on unexpectedly.

There are people you will meet who will do you good, there are friends who will walk away, and there are relationships that are never going to amount to anything. But we tend to leave our fingerprints behind when we touch someone’s life. Every person has learned something from someone. Our parents are our first teachers. We learn the basics of life through them. The internet is a platform where we interact with the world.

There are billions of people on this planet. All of them are walking the road to their own journey. One thing we mustn’t forget is that our goals and ambitions can change but the road to learning remains the same.

It molds us, shapes us and helps us create who we are as individuals. Whether our goals change or remain the same, one thing is certain: the journey of life changes us into who we are.

Learning is a process itself. But with a little motivation and inspiration, it’s possible to make the changes you need to live a better and healthier life.
