116: Fear of Going Backwards

If you’re an ambitious person, there’s a big chance you have a very real fear of going backwards. It’s easy to get wrapped up in the feeling that you should always be doing more, achieving more, moving forward etc to be successful. But success doesn’t always have to mean moving forward.

Perhaps you’re considering a career change, or maybe you’re at a different stage in life from those around you. Perception plays a big role in how we compare our progress to other people and in this episode we’re discussing the perceptions of progress, the difference between fear of going backwards and stagnation, and why it’s important to recognise what progress or growth looks like for you.
