Let us analyze the deep meaning behind the following iconic quote of Simon Sinek:
“Excitement comes from the achievement.
Fulfillment comes from the journey that got you there.”
Excitement is like an addiction that can be stimulated by attainment of short term targets and results in a shot of dopamine.This is never long lived though and the addiction mentality seeks for more awards.
Whereas fulfillment is always in the long term without focusing on short term addictive targets.Fulfillment can happen when we realize the power of social bonds and engage in a long term journey.Fulfillment results in flow of “love hormone” named Oxytocin.
