Are you on a journey or a mission?

Are you on a journey or a mission? There is nothing wrong with being on either one but it's good to be clear about which one you're on!

When you are on a journey you don't know where you're headed and you are unsure of where you'll end up. You may get blown around by the wind and feel like you are bouncing around like a ping pong ball. You are unsure yet of how to get where you're going. A journey is more about the experience of traveling from one destination to the next.  Many of us are focused so much on the destination we forget to enjoy the journey. My philosophy is you are almost always on a journey, so you might as well enjoy it.

"A journey is like marriage. The certain way to be wrong is to think you control it"

John Steinbeck

"The good the bad the ugly!"


I believe half of achieving anything  is knowing what you want and fearlessly going after it

When you are on a mission you know what you want and everything you do has purpose and a set intention! Your mind is set on what you want to accomplish and you set plans in motion to accomplish your mission. You have a detailed plan and are 100 percent committed to backing that up with action.    You will move heaven and earth to reach your goal. You have calculated the risks and the cost to reaching your end goal. You can't rest until your mission is accomplished and will do whatever it takes to reach your objective, whether is to run the extra mile or swim the ocean or eat that yucky butternut squash your trainer is always pushing on you. A mission

moves you and drives you to do the things that will take you to completion.

On a Mission

Lisa Babcock

- If you are on a mission, there is more of a sense of urgency. Life is a journey, and I hope mine is a long one.

Linda Mitchell-  I think it's important to have both! I'm enjoying my journey more because I'm on a mission. My mission at CHICKFIT is to help women love themselves when they look in the mirror and have the ability to love themselves transfer into loving and giving support to one another. Self improvement equals empowerment."
