MANILA, Philippines – “Perseverance is the key to success.” From the bulletin boards we made in grade school to the Tumblr memes we reblog on our phones, we’ve learned – and understood – that hard work is what gets you to the top. That, and a bit of luck. Sometimes, a lot of luck.
Whatever you’re gunning for this year – a dream job, a dream country, or even a dream relationship – the road towards success is not going to be easy. The higher the goal, the harder the climb. Obstacles (and overcoming them) will be a given. So instead of seeing things from a challenged perspective, what about taking a different approach? How about starting everything from a joy-filled viewpoint?
The rationale is simple: in life, if you walk with joy, you can go further. If you see every step as part of being able to pursue what you love, then everything will be filled with purpose and meaning.
Think about it – what are the things that bring you joy? How will you continue to inject joy into your daily journey? And where do you want to take it this year?
