“The Outcome Is Not The Outcome” (#190)

I was listening to my new favorite podcast “Tribe of Mentors” and this was one of the quotes.

“The outcome is not the outcome”.

I think this quote stands out to me because I’ve seen it in my own life. Despite what happens in life, what we go through, what we accomplish, the world turns on. Successes, failures, change, it’s all constantly occurring leading us to new outcomes and learning moments.

I think this is why gratitude can be so important. We can recognize how far we’ve come. When we were at our lowest, what it took to climb out because we know we can keep going. All we need to remember is to take it one day at a time.
