Overcoming is What Feels Good
An athlete may spend 5 years submerged in their daily actions towards an event and when the event is over they feel lost.
It’s common amongs athletes to fall into a depression after they’ve achieved their goals.
But this doesn’t just happen in sports. Sometimes we aim to get our dream job, to overcome our weaknesses, to buy a house to fall in love and once we achieved those goals we feel empty.
In that case it’s time to find a new goal. Something that excites you. Something that would blow your mind if you achieved it.
We feel our best when we work towards overcoming an obstacle whether it’s internal or external. Happiness doesn’t come from the prize at the end of the road. Hapinness comes from striving towards something.
Commit to a goal and take the first step. The rest unfolds by itself.
