It's important for you to enjoy the journey and not take yourself or life too seriously. Sometimes, as you may have noticed, you get really intense, uptight and stressed out about your goals and dreams, almost as if you're holding your breath, waiting to exhale once things all turn out. This creates a stressful dynamic in your life and is not the most conducive environment (internally and externally) for you to create success and fulfillment. Having fun along the way ensures that you'll keep things in perspective and enjoy the ride, regardless of the outcome.
Keeping your head in the clouds and your feet on the ground is a lot easier said than done. However, when you're able to do both with passion, intention and focus, you create a sense of balance and peace that can allow you to have what you truly want in life.
