“Are we there yet, are we there yet?” Now, if you’re a parent with young children, then this refrain coming from the backseat of your car is likely commonplace at this time of the year.
Now, as tempting as it is to get frustrated by these questions, especially when you’ve heard them for the umpteenth time, the reality is that the question, “are we there yet?”, as annoying as it may be, is one that we continue to repeat no matter how old we get.
Indeed, when it comes to making headway in our path to financial independence, there are times when we get so frustrated by the seemingly lack of progress or overwhelming desire to just get to our goals, that we begin uttering our own grown-up renditions of, “am I there yet…”
Now, in our fast-paced, result-driven society, it's easy to get caught up in the allure of immediate outcomes. And that’s we need constant reminders that there are no shortcuts on the journey to financial independence. That’s because while progress is often the ideal, the process for achieving our goals is what prepares us for our destination, and ultimately makes us who we are.
That’s why a shift in perspective towards embracing the process rather than fixating solely on progress can lead to profound personal growth and fulfillment. And while understanding how crucial the process is won’t pacify your desire for a quick resolution, when you can learn to fall in love with the process itself, it likely will help give you peace of mind knowing you’re on the right track.
