""The process is the goal." Chi Running --Pursuing goals is admirable. In our pursuits, however, it's easy to lose sight of the gains we are making in the journey itself. Take time to periodically reflect on your growth and take pride in your efforts, especially in the lessons that failure and perseverance bring. This is where real growth happens."
