I just saw a sticker that read “This Journey is 1% Finished”. How amazing is that idea! If our journey is only 1% finished then that means we still have 99% of it to make our lives into everything we have hoped and dreamed. It means that even if we have royally messed up thus far we still have plenty of time to make things right.
Having this mindset will set you free from the baggage of thinking, “this is it, this is all I have, this is my last project, no one will ever hire me again.” That project, job, relationship, or opportunity is just a blip on the radar, you still have 99% of the journey to go. So don’t let this one hill make or brake you.
It is so easy to slip into negativity when fear of “the end” is looming in your mind. But what if instead we remain present, conscious of the fact that this, right now, is just the beginning.
This idea should make us nervous, this concept should be scary and hard to deal with. In the words of Seth Godin, “Find your should and make it go away.”
