Why do we yearn for more when we reach our goals? w/ Tracey Coates

A lot of times, once we reach our goals, we want to do more. The list of things we want to achieve keeps growing, and new goals take the place of old ones.

That’s perfectly natural. Our goals don’t have to be set destinations – they can be rolling milestones toward creating what we want.

Why do we yearn for more, and why do we grapple with deciding what to do? Can trial and error help when it comes to doing more, and how do we deal with failure?

In this episode life coach, podcast host and practicing attorney Tracey Coates joins me to discuss what it means to do more, why it differs from person to person and how we can embrace failure and use it as a currency for success.

You’ve got to know what the sacrifices are and be willing to make them.
