My good friend, Jamil Jama, shared this great quote from John Ruskin. This is a very powerful quote because it defines what our ultimate reward should be for the work we do to achieve the goals. The result of what we strive for really isn’t for the goal itself but for what it makes us. When we achieve our goals, we get the object of that goal, but the greater reward is what we become from achieving that goal.

When you get the goals we set, we get the feelings of satisfaction, fulfillment and accomplishment. We gain higher levels of confidence. We build a stronger character. The greatest benefit and reward is the belief that we can achieve any goal that we set. We realize that we can be who or what we set out to be. We are powerful and important. We have become a success. We have become a greater person. We have become a Goal Getter!

When we work hard and complete the tasks we set for ourselves, we Become what we want to be.
