Show Notes

One of our listeners sent us this question about the idea of constantly wanting to get ahead in life, and how that seems to clash with another idea of being happy with what you have. Aren't these two ideas in conflict with each other?

If you're happy with where you are, you might be seen as lazy and uninspired, but isn't the goal of wanting to achieve success to be happy? And if you're already there, aren't you.. winning?  

 

Tell us your two cents and drop us a question (or two, or three) here:
