Welcome to Episode 18 of the Young and Happy.com podcast. Today, I talk about a lesson I learned from “The Alchemist” by Paulo Coelho about how life is about the journey, not the destination.
When it comes to setting goals and achieving happiness and success, I, like so many others, focus on that end game of where I would like to end up. Unfortunately, keeping my eyes fixated on that end game distracts me from the present and saps my enjoyment out of my pursuit of this goal. As Paulo Coelho explains through the story of the boy, the most important part of our life is the journey to achieving our Personal Legend and not in the actual Legend itself. Today, I discuss this teaching and how I’m using it to increase my happiness in the present.
Let me know your Personal Legend below and how you stay grounded in the present.
