Josie has a conundrum – after spending most of her life striving relentlessly, she’s come to a place where she’s … satisfied. And it’s kind of freaking her out. Josie asked:
- Do you think it’s important to have goals in life and to strive, or is it just as valid to meander along?
- Do you think strivers can often have a negative undercurrent to their need to achieve? Or is this not that common?
- How do you recognise when your goal setting is coming from a negative place?
- And, any tips on how I can find motivation again to try and strive for a new goal that’s truly important to me and not about what other people think?
As dedicated strivers themselves, answering the above questions also provided Kelly and Carly with the opportunity for some self-reflection.
