What’s at the end of the rainbow for you?
Money? Fame? Love? A gaping hole of always wanting more?
The tricky thing with having an idealized goal in mind is that you’ll never know if you’ll achieve it until you do, as every other moment until then is less than.
But if you can recognize your idealized goal as just that – an idealized one – and find satisfaction in all of the smaller goals that you’ll inevitably have to achieve to make it to the idealized one you’ll be able to realize success and happiness much sooner.
