"the process of achieving/attaining is actually more important than the outcome."
the process of getting what you want may be painful, but isn't that the sweetest when you look back on what you have done to achieve it? mugging for exam is a classic example. the preparation stage is always the toughest: burn midnight oil, stress, no tv/internet, blah blah.. but after all these years of education, don't you agree that the process of studying is actually what you cherish and remember more than the paper qualification you get at the end? also think of the time where you are saving/working hard for a particular toy or gadget you have been eyeing for a while. isn't the process of trying to achieve it the time where your fighting spirit is the strongest? after you got your toy you will probably play around with it for a while before dumping it at one corner collecting dust. after a while you may probably forgotten that you have that toy in the first place.
of coz i'm not saying that the final outcome is not important, its important actually. however, what i'm trying to mean is that the process of achieving and not the outcome has made you a different person isn't it? its only at the process you will realise what your latent capabilities are...
