Why You May Lose Steam On Your Goals In Your Thirties
Know that you are over the hump
Don’t be intimidated by this young, fresh-out-of-college colleague who is going after the same things you are, with so much inspiration in her eyes. Everyone has all that energy when they are fresh to the game. She hasn’t accomplished what you have yet, which is getting over that five-year hump. You know you are really built for something, and have passion for it, if you are still sticking it out after five or so years when you really haven’t received outside reward yet. You do still have an upper hand, even if it doesn’t feel like it next to this peppy 22-year-old. She may burn out in a couple of years. You already hit the phase of potential burn out and you pushed through. Take confidence in that.
