There’s much satisfaction in working toward a goal.
Setting our eyes on a target and doing what we can to make it happen.
Some of us spread our efforts over many goals spanning different areas of life.
Others of us dedicate our efforts to one thing.
We put in the work.
Day after day.
All of our time and energy toward this one thing.
And we get really freaking good at it, too.
We’re making progress.
We are, by all metrics, “successful” at our chosen pursuit.
Yet, still, we find ourselves unhappy.
Even with our success.
All of our hard work paid off.
A longing for more.
We’re doing all the right things.
It’s worth considering just how much the goal really matters to you.
Exploring whether you’re chasing after a dream of your own.
Living according to your truth.
You may know how to climb the ladder.
Is the ladder leaning against the right wall?
Do you really want what you’re working toward?
Will the end goal make your life better?
Fill your cup?
A life lived according to any standard but your own is a life wasted.
Take a step back.
Dig deep inside.
Figure out how you want to live.
What you want to do.
Who you want to be.
Then do it.
Put in the work, of course.
But only work that you find worthy.
Work toward your most excellent life.
You’ve got this.
