"Sometimes the greatest thing to come out of all your hard work isn't what you get for it, but what you become for it."
It would be great if hard work guaranteed you would accomplish everything you set out to do.
Life doesn't work that way. It throws us curves and there are plenty of factors that are outside of our control. Sometimes despite our best efforts we don't get the result we wanted.
The good news is that while the results are what we are shooting for the most important thing is who we become by working towards our goals. What skills did we develop? How did we get better? What did we learn for the next time around?
When we focus on the process and make life about development rather than an arbitrary end result we find that we have more strength and courage to carry us through whatever challenges we face.
