Feeling Like You’re Not Enough
Is there a voice in your head that relentlessly tells you you’re not enough?
Does ambition eclipse your ability to enjoy your life?
And what would you do if you no longer had to focus on making money?
In today’s coaching call, I talk with a recently retired entrepreneur. Even though he’s been able to retire, he’s unable to enjoy himself because there’s a part of him that thinks he hasn’t accomplished enough. So today we explore a future where he’s no longer bullied into proving he’s enough, and he’s finally allowed to create what brings deep satisfaction.
In this conversation:
- Does retirement mean you no longer have goals?
- Why making a contribution is essential to our well-being
- Living for something bigger than making money
- The mindset that keeps us from feeling satisfied
- Comparing yourself to others
