Devon Weber's Blog/Mindset Shift/How Solely Focusing on Your End Goal Can Impact Your Journey

I think sometimes it's so easy to get caught up in your end goal that we forget to fall in love with the journey. All of my life, I had my eyes set on how my life would be so much better once I reached the finish line.

Whether that meant being in front of a crowd of thousands showing them my music, building funnels for top brands and entrepreneurs in the world, or the general statement of becoming a millionaire. I was so caught up in the end goal of what I defined as success, and that was my only focus.

The problem with this thinking is that every venture I embarked on, I would only feel let down, and quite frankly, burnt out.

For years, I felt like the world was out to get me. I tried countless things suggested: meditation, positive affirmations, manifestation. No matter what I did to supplement my mental health, I always seemed to be left high and dry in the end, starting back at what felt like square one.

The big question I would ask…

What did I do to deserve this?

Why me…

I wish I could say that I came to a conclusion sooner of what the solution to my problem was, but I would be lying to you if I told you that I came to this conclusion sooner than 4-5 months ago.

I was doing it all wrong…

Instead of focusing so much on the finish line, or the thought… "If only I could have X then I would finally be Y."

I realized, the answer is to fall in love with the journey and the process it takes to get to your end goal and not the end goal itself.

Now instead of wishing I could be further ahead of where I currently am, I can look at how far I've come and be grateful for where I am.

It sounds cheesy, but the other benefit is that this way of thinking really helps keep me in the moment.

Which is good for a little anxious boy like me… haha

Just remember it's not about where you want to be but being grateful for how far you've come.

In a race against yourself, the only way to lose is if you stop; your pace doesn’t matter.

Okay, that’s enough cheesy inspiration for today!
