Weekly Wisdom: The Power of Holding Loosely to the Outcome but Fervently to the Path

2- hold to the path

Greetings Everyone,

 "Success is a journey, not a destination. The doing is often more important than the outcome."

- Arthur Ashe

True success in leadership and personal growth often lies in the journey rather than the outcome. It's about committing wholeheartedly to the work at hand (or the path), embracing each step with passion and dedication, while remaining open to the outcome. This mindset allows for adaptability, learning, and growth, as it focuses on effort and intention over fixed results.

"Let go of the attachment to the desired outcome, and instead focus on the actions that get you there."

- Unknown

The key to navigating life's challenges is to focus on the actions that align with our values and goals, without being overly attached to a specific outcome. This approach encourages resilience and perseverance, as it values progress and effort over a fixed end result. It's about doing your best and letting the journey unfold.

  1. Radical Curiosity

What outcome or desire are you clinging to that is keeping you from fully embracing the journey?

This Week's Charge:

Reflect on a goal or project where you are heavily invested in the outcome. This week, shift your focus to the actions and steps needed to achieve it. Pay attention to how this shift in perspective affects your approach and feelings towards the goal.

Forge Forward,

Jon Mayo
