When you reach you goal, it will make you very happy. Then, it'll create a state of confusion because then you won't have anything more to chase after. You'll relax for a while and as you most deservingly should, but then after a while, you will set yourself new and even higher goals, and that'll be terrific.

But when you do that, you'll 'll most certainly look back and realize: it's the journey to your goal that's important; that getting up one hour early every day, writing things down again and again to stay on course, that pain and rejection, all of that was really the fun part. Know deep in your heart that you are going to achieve your goal. It is a sure thing. If you are doing all the things you need to, every day, then there is nothing -- absolutely nothing -- that can stop you from achieving your goal. So, banish all fear and anxiety. This part, the part you are now in, the pain and rejection and doubt and re-affirmation, is the real fun part. :-)

It's always the journey that makes the goal worthwhile. Bless yourself that you're on the path, for there are many who are simply walking towards death with their eyes closed.

Poem: It's the journey that's important

Wow!!! What a thought to ponder on. You are right Sathyaish... many just "exist" in this world until they vacate this globe - they don't have a meaning to life. Even worms, insects and creatures do live.. living is not important but life is what matters most.
Thanks for sharing this thought with us.

A very good morning, Ganesh! :-)

You've captured the very essence of this poem in your comments. Most people work hard so they can earn enough to pay bills, then they pay taxes, then they pay bills, then they pay the mortgage, the bank loan, the housing loan, the car loan, then they buy Reebok shoes, then they go to the cinema twice a month, and then they run out money. Or they save a fixed, moderate amount. They rinse and repeat until they are 65 when they realize, "WTF! I didn't do nothing to make myself financially independent. I just worked all my life to get by. Now, game's almost over. I have to rely on pension or whatever meager investments to get by. Plus, I didn't really walk on the grass, I never saw my child grow up. I spent all my time to earn this pension."

Goal setters, on the other hand, set lofty 5 year goals and then go full throttle to make them happen, whatever the cost. Most of them declare financial independence are retire early to enjoy life. :-)

And in getting there, they face up to all obstacles with faith and belief in their hearts. The triumph of such a made up mind is certain.

The poet in this poem consoles the heart of such a person who is on the path, assuring them that this journey is worth it, and it's this journey that's more important that reaching the goal.
