The Pressure of the Result

In a commencement address, actor and comedian Will Ferrell shared his story of struggle to find success (success which- tangential comment here- he identifies in this same address as his wife and family). 

One line stood stood out to me:

Enjoy the process of your search without succumbing to the pressure of the result.

This reminds me of something my mission president taught me: let the Lord worry about the results.

Worry almost always centers around results. But we should remember that results are on the Lord’s To Do List, not ours. Ours simply consists of the “process of [our] search,” a process that is much easier to enjoy when we are free from worrying about results.
