Kick Butt Tip: Enjoy the Journey, Not Just the Result
Today’s Kick Butt Tip of the Day comes from American fashion designer Vera Wang.
As you may know, Vera Wang has probably dressed about every bride in Hollywood. A few names that come to mind include Megan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, Kim Kardashian, Ariana Grande, Mariah Carey and a ton more.
Today’s Kick Butt Tip of the Day is “success, is not about the end result. It’s about what you learn along along the way.”
Let’s think about this for a moment. If you’ve ever been part of a sports team, every day you went to practice with a goal of winning that week’s game and then winning the next week and so on. Then, if you won enough games, you were named the conference champions. For those of us fortunate to be part of a championship team, it’s wonderful for about fifteen minutes. Shortly after the big win, you may have found yourself a little empty and thinking, okay, what’s next?
So, whether you’re planning a vacation, enjoy the time that you spend generating the idea. Enjoy the planning of the vacation and then actually enjoy the vacation. We both know, that before you know it, the vacation will only be a memory.
One other thing. Many of us learned the name Vera Wang in 1968. Wang worked hard for many years with a goal to make the Winter Olympics in 1968. That goal never happened. After figure skating ended, she pursued her interest in designing fashions. The rest as they say, is history. When one door closes, another opens.
Let me leave you with two things please. God don’t make no junk and you, yes you are awesome! Now go be awesome!
