You’ve heard about long-term thinking, and not sacrificing your future for your present. But how about not sacrificing your present for your future?

It’s okay to relax. It’s okay not to have a calendar that’s full 24/7. It might in fact lead you to not only a better experience of life, but also to more creativity, more big picture thinking and a higher self-esteem.

But – how about that pressing feeling of dissatisfaction? That knowledge that you aren’t doing enough? That others are getting ahead of you?

Being able to enjoy the journey is not the easiest thing in the world – and perhaps this episode will help you get thinking and show you some possible paths forward.

Something that can help a lot is a good community. A community of people who believe both in achievement but also in gentleness. Well, guess what? valiantgrowth.com/community

  1. Wonderful post about an important aspect of goal-setting that is not mentioned often enough.

    It’s such a big deal to make peace with being a beginner. You have to be okay with starting where you are, because so many people have started from their own personal rock bottom.

    Even if you feel that the circumstances you’re starting with are uniquely difficult, the growth and experience you will have from it will be so rewarding in the end. Better yet, they will be there for you to teach and lift others up with, too!

    Progress is a great motivator. It’s also a great way to take a breath and relax, as you’ve reminded us to do. But only if you choose to notice it!
