Don’t feel guilty for being in a phase of your life that you’re following YOUR goals and not those of others. Trevor Mauch
This topic FIRES me up!
We’re now about two years into the CarrotCast and we’re so grateful of our audience and the impact that we’ve been able to provide.
This impact was touched on recently when I was talking with one of our Carrot members. There was a question during the conversation that hit me at my core…
The question of “when is enough, enough?”
We all have ambitions. We all have the drive for more. But, when does that get out of hand?
My initial goal when I first started out was to make $4k per month. But, over time, my aspirations, motivations, and standards changed.
Luckily, my path has taken me personally and Carrot on a journey to impact the lives of others.
But, there are those who what that next higher level while either losing their purpose or never having one in the first place. They get the “not good enough” disease. Whatever they have or do just isn’t good enough anymore.
On this episode, I want to help cure that mindset. I want to help our audience get over the need for validation. It’s time to switch that mindset to truly feel your work is making a positive difference in the lives of others.
If you’re not waking up each day and feel excited and fired up to help not only your life but the lives of many, many people, then you’re most likely in the enough is enough phase.
Listen in. Start enjoying yourself and put to use the finances, freedom, and flexibility that you’ve worked so hard to achieve.
