“Become a millionaire not for the million dollars, but for what it will make of you to achieve it. After you become a millionaire, you can give all of your money away because what’s important is not the million dollars; what’s important is the person you have become in the process of becoming a millionaire.”
~ Jim Rohn
This is an important lesson to remember anytime we set out to accomplish a goal of significance. A strong commitment towards goal achievement is a worthy endeavor, but in the process don’t forget that the striving is the most significant part. Sometimes we fail, sometimes we fall short of the mark, and sometimes we even exceed our intention. Win or lose, it’s the effort that remains with us. Even when we accomplish or exceed our goal, the end result can be fleeting while the change in us, manifested by our efforts, is permanent.
