Goal achieving does not equal arriving

Goal achieving does not equal arriving 
A mistake people make is to visualize to their goals rather than through their goals. Because after we hit a goal, there is still life to live. I haven’t “arrived” once I hit that goal.
Let’s use the example of running a marathon. Absolutely I should celebrate crossing the finish line. I set a goal and I achieved it. However, if I am a runner, I’ll be running again in a couple of days because that is who I am. So then, what am I running towards? – health, fitness, well-being. Those things continue long after the marathon is over.
Even if I’m running the marathon from a bucket list perspective (a one-time thing that I won’t repeat), there’s still a what’s next. So again, I should absolutely celebrate running that marathon and . . . living an adventurous life, or challenging myself or ??? will continue long after the marathon is over.
Visualizing to a goal makes the goals heavier and more significant than they are (and therefore harder to obtain). Visualizing through our goals makes them an almost inevitable mile post on the journey.
