"Focus on the journey, not the destination. Joy is found not in finishing an activity but in doing it."

Greg Anderson

Why do I like the quote?

It is so easy to focus on the destination and believe getting there will make us happy. It means though, in the meantime we live waiting for happiness. Usually we are at the destination a matter of seconds before we are looking for the next, and sometimes the destination is isn't the butterflies and glitter we expected.

“The biggest rewards in life are found outside your comfort zone. Live with it. Fear and risk are prerequisites if you want to enjoy a life of success and adventure.”

Taking that step into the unknown can be full of fear and risk, but the possibilities and sense of achievement that comes from stepping outside of your comfort zone make it all so worth it. It's uncomfortable, but being stuck in the same place brings much more discomfort and regret in the long run.

"At the end of the day people won't remember what you said or did, they will remember how you made them feel."

Why do I like the quote?

"If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion."
