Becoming – It’s Part of Your Journey of Being an Online High School Student

“Set a Goal so high you can’t achieve it until you become the person who can.”

If you have ever set a goal so high you can’t achieve it, and then worked for it day after day, day after day, day after day, you know it’s not about the Goal. It may seem monotonous and you feel like you aren’t going anywhere especially if you are working on your online high school classes with regular cadence. It seems endless. You learn, you study, you do assignments, you take exams, then you do that all over again. Day after day, month after month, year after year. Don’t get frustrated and give up…Instead, say to yourself, it’s about the journey, not about the Goal.

It’s about the journey, not about the Goal.

Yes, the destination is important. Graduating is important. In fact it’s crucial. That online high school diploma tells others and yourself that you’ve done all of this work and you’ve completed your required online classes and assessments and you’re ready to be promoted. You don’t have a Journey without a destination. You don’t have your struggles and accomplishments and small wins without the goal of getting your online high school diploma. On the other hand, the Journey can’t be the Goal. I’m sure you’re well aware that your daily tasks and accomplishments cannot be the end point. A Goal-less Journey is like your skeleton with no muscles. It just flops around.

The Goal is the change agent.

The Goal is the change agent. The Journey does the changing. Your online high school diploma is your license to change your life. The daily tasks and accomplishments that you do now in your online high school is what changes your thoughts, ideas, perceptions, and intellect.

It’s not the sails that move the boat, it’s the wind.  

It’s not the brakes that stop the car, it’s the friction.

It’s not the smile that elicits joy, it’s the meaning behind it.

It’s not accomplishing a goal that makes you a better person, it’s becoming a person who can accomplish a Goal that makes you a better person.
