Welcome to another beautiful Friday edition of the lighthouse!!!
I’m super duper glad to have you here with me. As always!
I love you so much and I really appreciate you!
Are you like me, desiring to be a good writer and author but dreading the part where I get to sit down, think and properly articulate my thoughts into writing?
Or you are like my next door neighbor who wouldn’t stop fantasizing and romancing the idea of having a summer body and big booty, but the very thought of having to hit the gym/exercising and kissing all the yummy junks bye turns all the lights off in her head?
Maybe you even desire a consistent prayer life but you would subconsciously find yourself spending all morning catching up on what went down on the TLs on every social media platforms.
We all at one point or the other desire a thing but resent the process it requires.
I know you have always been told and encouraged to fantasize about the end goal.
You are even told to put the picture of who/what we would love to become on every surface that catches your attention as the days go by.
All these things are good and I am not making light of them in anyway.
Yes! The concept of vision board is beautiful
But they can’t always sustain you.
Reaching your end goal would always require you to pay some more attention to the process.
We often romance the future so much that we forget the present is a prerequisite.
My point is, to become the man/woman you desire a little quicker and easier, FALL IN LOVE WITH & ENJOY THE PROCESS
Start transferring some of the love and fantasies you shower on the results to the process. Because sweetheart, that’s where the juice is 😉😉😉
The strength of character we build, experiences we garner and the person we become on the inside in the process of acquiring our desired outcomes is 10x greater than the outcome itself.
The joy is not only in being a bestseller author, the joy is also in the developed ability to articulate your thoughts into writing faster and better pass your message across to your audience.
The joy is not only in the fitter dresses & summer body but also the exciting feeling that comes with the surge of endorphin release after the each exercise session.
The joy is not only in the having a consistent prayer life but also in the intimate relationship that is fostered between you and God
The joy is not only in building the million dollar company or being on Forbes 30under30 list but in the relationships built, emotional resilience and experiences garnered in the process.
The joy is not in earning the certificate, the joy is in the man/woman that knows that he/she can achieve what he/she wants despite challenges and barriers.
We often forget that everything that is worthwhile in life is often gotten by surmounting the painful or “does not feel good” experiences that we love to skip.
We get too excited about the results that we forget that it’s the process that would lead us to our destination.
We need to focus more on the present that will take us to the future that we envision.
The growth that we experience and the men/women we become during the process makes all of the difference.
Contrary to popular opinion, I urge you to love the process and not just trust the process!
Make smashing every day goal become something you look forward to even though the end goal would take months or even years to shape up!
Thanks for reading🤗🤗🤗
