Love the Process, Not the result.
It’s something you hear all the time. Love the process. Love the grind. Don’t be in it for rewards. Follow that, and you’ll be successful. It’s pretty clear that if you jump into anything and expect rewards immediately, you won’t have a good time. Especially businesses. Sure you may get the money, but your business will suffer quickly and fizzle out and you’ll be back to square one.
I was asked recently ‘what drives you?’ ‘You constantly create tattoos, art, music, video. do you ever take a day off?’
How is my approach different from anyone else?
Well, the simple answer is that I’m driven by the process. I love the doing of it, that’s my real passion. The joy I feel making stuff just because I can. Making stuff is fun, learning to film, edit and score is fun, filming this is fun, making tattoos is fun. i do it all because i just enjoy it.
I Love the Process.
Success in any field is more about commitment to a process than it is about finding one magic trick that will make it all come together.
Example of 3 guys in the gym.
- Lives there
- Only does arms to look good but hates the gym
- Doesn’t go to the gym, just photoshops himself big arms on instagram
I’m like the first guy it’s never a grind. I love doing it and it’s part of my lifestyle. Because of this its sustainable – I never burn out because the process energises me constantly. I’m not focussed on the result – if I put in the work it’ll come – I’m focussed on the journey and what it has to offer.
Chasing the results without understanding the process will lead to short-lived success, if not outright failure. Long term success is a different game with different rules. Rules that you must play by or everything will turn around on you. Those rules are the process. The system is the process. The small things you do every day that guarantees inevitable success are the process.
