Is it Possible to Achieve a Final, Complete of Success? 2560 1706 Right Path Counseling

Many people have personal or professional goals that they are looking to achieve. For example, a person’s goal may be to become CEO of their company, or to obtain a specific amount of wealth, or to reach some type of victory in life.

If we’re motivated enough, and work hard enough, there is a chance that we might reach that goal. We have achieved success.

Or have we?

One thing that very few of us plan for us what happens *after* we have reached our goals. We put so much pressure and effort on ourselves to reach a specific desire, and when we reach it, what happens next?

  • Are we done?
  • Do we stop having goals?
  • Does life pause?

The truth is that no, no it does not. In fact, it could even get a bit harder.

Life After Success Doesn’t End

The thing that many on the road to success need to remember is that goals are only a part of life, not all of it, and not the end of it.

Imagine your goal is to become CEO. You work so hard, and finally you become CEO. Do you quit? Does life end?

Nope. In fact, now you have to do all the hard work of being CEO but without any of the goals to reach. Now, for some CEOs, the goal is obtaining wealth, so they can never truly reach their goals because they are looking to make more and more money. But for others, where becoming CEO is the goal (in this example), reaching that milestone can actually have a negative consequence.

When we achieve huge, lifelong goals, we have achieved success, but we also now often find that we have no additional direction. Our lives don’t end upon reaching these goals, and so now we are faced with trying to figure out where to go next.

In that sense, there is no such thing as a final goal, or a single lifelong thing we need to reach in order to feel complete and a success. Life goes on, and so too will our goals go on with it.

How to Move Forward After Achievement

It is because of this that many people feel low, even after they’ve achieved their lifelong dreams. There is sometimes an emptiness that occurs when a person hits their goal, because there is this feeling of “now what” that suddenly hits them.

Counseling is an effective way to address life after success. Through therapy, patients can figure out what’s next, learn how to feel positive about their achievements, and manage some of those stresses that people experience when they are at the top.
