It’s a pretty good feeling when you set a goal for yourself and then you achieve it. The days you spent working towards the goal were deeply fulfilling and your energy levels were high. As a goal oriented species, it makes sense that we are at our best when we are reaching for the stars. When you actually accomplish and succeed what you set out to do, you feel on top of the world. What happens when all the excitement wears off? You feel a little empty inside and feel that there must be something more.
You know you should be ecstatic because this goal you obtained was because you rock. If you became extremely wealthy or powerful through the goal you achieved, this may not be enough to actually lift you up. The thing is, if you start to feel negative about your life, you may end up right where you started off. You have to keep that momentum going especially after you’ve ‘made it’. This way, you’ll truly be ending the ‘never enough’ cycle.
1 Spend Some Time By Yourself
Did you know that every successful person takes time out to themselves? It may be just 15 minutes a day in the early hours of the morning but they ensure they get the time to be alone. If you’ve been overachieving, it’s also important to do nothing at all.
Your mind will tell you it’s time to move and do something but that’s precisely why you shouldn’t. Taking a time out, especially in nature, will give you a different perspective. How can you possibly feel like you’re not receiving enough when you spend time alone in a forest?
If you can find yourself thinking deeply enough about it, nature can teach you that growth is effortless and constant. Your growth is the same. There will always be enough. You’ll find yourself in less of a struggle when you can just quiet everything down inside of you and take in what surrounds you.
