Missing the Point

We’ve all heard the statement, “Success is a journey not a destination.”  So, what’s the point?

Well, if you think achieving success in life is your destination, you will miss the point of living your life to the fullest.  Life isn’t about focusing on the future in a myopic way.  Life is about progressing along its path gaining understanding and broadening perspective along the way.  In other words, if you only open your eyes to the wonder of life at its destination you will miss the beauty of the journey along the way.

If you miss the journey, you are missing the point (the essence) of life.  Come on!  Another overused but powerful statement:  “Stop and smell the roses.”  You can’t smell much as you ride a bullet train to success.  And, even if you could, the view of the passing beauty would be blurred, at best.
