Why You May Lose Steam On Your Goals In Your Thirties
Achievement is just the next phase
Only once we have spent years and years honing our skill can we really pursue accolades and rewards in a real way. That is actually the first time we even begin to be contenders. We must be ready after years of mastering a skill for even more years of proving to the world that we have that skill. It is a new phase, that we enter into in our thirties. But we have pride and we are tired. We can be so exhausted from all the work we have put into just getting good at our job that we can feel we are entitled to the outside recognition. We can feel we are entitled to the higher pay and the more important roles and the praise. Doesn’t everyone know how hard we’ve been working? We know. We are exhausted. So to feel we now have to work to prove that we have put in the work can feel unfair. But that’s how careers go.
