The process

When we set goals, of course we think about the end result: the prize.  But sometimes we forget that the process toward the goal is just as important!  In it, we may learn more about ourselves then we could have imagined or planned.  We learn about perseverance, tolerance to pain or suffering, patience, understanding, compassion, judgment, love, acceptance, and many other emotions and feelings.  Regardless of whether we win, lose, achieve the goal or realize the goal is out of our reach this time, the process and what we learn from it is invaluable and can be applied toward the next goal or objective.  If our intention is merely to win or lose, we may miss out on the most important message of all.
