Diary #118 The Double-Edged Sword of Setting Goals

Whilst succeeding in a goal is great, struggling and possibly failing, is quite painful.

Any tips for dealing with this double-edged sword would be welcome, as I’m currently dealing with such a situation. For now, I have:

  • Mindfulness practice, to be more at ease with the emotional tug
  • Change in perspective - recognising that struggle and growth go hand in hand 

If this resonates have a listen to this 6 min podcast episode.
