Welcome to Episode 2 of the Mind Games solo series on the Screw the Naysayers Podcast.
Today’s episode is titled, Whose Dream are You Chasing?
I start with a short reading from my book (with a couple of tweaks). It talks about a time in my life when I was living a lie. From the outside looking in I had it all. Inside I was dying. I was killing myself with destructive habits, an absent father and a lousy husband, and right on the verge of a complete mental breakdown. Looking back, had I continued on this path, I sincerely believe that I would have been dead or divorced within five years. Probably both, and probably sooner.
People often ask me how I let things get this bad? Truth is I was confused about what was causing my unhappiness. Most of the time I thought there must be something wrong with me. I had everything I’d set out to achieve, so if I wasn’t happy I must be defective in some way. And even when I did figured out what the real problem was, my mind kept telling me I must be wrong. I couldn’t have been that stupid.
Turns out I was doing what so many of us do. I was chasing goals other people had set for me. In this short episode of Mind Games I’ll share with you three lessons I learned during this process.
How about you? Did you ever find yourself chasing goals that you didn’t really own? What did you do to change that?
Share your stories so we can all learn from it. Get in touch.
