#56 Don't crush on the future, fall in love with the process

Getting what you want is the easy part.

You have the life that you have now because of the person you have been up to now.

Read that again. Let it sink in.

Now consider this.

If you continue being who you are now, you remain on track to reaching your old, uninspiring future.

On the Clarity Quest, we spend a lot of time clarifying what we want out of life. We also spend time building a Big Dream that becomes a future anchor which motivates and inspires us to take action in the present.

But getting what you want and realising your Big Dream is not really the point. That is the easy part. The hard part, and the main point of the process, is becoming the person who can take action toward their Big Dream. This person is willing and able to commit and pay the price of reaching their wants and dreams in full.

The point is really not "how do I attain my future anchor" as a goal.

The point is who you become in the process of going after your Big Dream.

You have to fall in love with the process. It is not enough to merely have a crush on the future.

What is the difference, you may wonder?

Crushing on the future

What happens when you have a crush? You get incredibly excited, you can't stop thinking about it, can't stop talking to your friends about it — but it all happens from a distance. You don't actually go up to the person you have a crush on and ask them out. You never really take action.

Falling in love with the process

Falling in love with the process is completely different because you are constantly and consciously taking action and, step by step, building a new track to your Big Dream.

You are invited to curiosity, to course correction, to balancing, to celebrating all the successes.

Once you've decided on your future anchor you no longer have to fixate on the future that seems far and unattainable — you can just focus on taking the next small step on your journey.

Consider / take action:

What is your Big Dream?

What is one small step that you can take today to start moving you down the new tracks toward you Big Dream?

If you have lost sight of your Big Dream, or feel stuck and unable to start moving toward your Big Dream, consider joining the Clarity Quest.
