The journey is probably not about teaching that guy or girl a lesson. It is also not about proving it to your parents. Or someone in your social circle who tries to pull you down.
The journey is about discovering yourself. And about growing yourself from that place. Nurturing meaning in people’s lives through your very presence.
Life could either be exciting, boring or challenging. When it is exciting, keep doing your great work. You are at your best creative potential then. When it is boring, show up and do the work. No matter what. And when it is challenging, keep showing up no matter how anyone tries to pull you down.
Your only job is to lift yourself up and lift other people up. Constantly, even when things are shaking up and even when things are boring.
The journey is about consistency.
