Accomplishment is a Journey

"Accomplishment will prove to be a journey, not a destination." - Dwight D. Eisenhower

Often times we sell ourselves short in thinking that once we accomplish (fill in the blank) we've achieved success; or we've reached our destination. It's been said, you're either growing or your dying.  Those that have a long-term approach to life, who view life as a journey not a destination, will have balance and peace (hopefully).  

But a big part of thinking this way involves purpose.  I guarantee you someone who lives for a purpose greater than themselves will live a more fulfilled life, and will be more apt to view life as a journey, not a destination. What's your purpose?  How does that purpose shape your life?  Does it?
