There is a cycle to taking on a challenge. First there is the desire to get there, be the thing you dream. Then there is the resistance, the work, as you move from where you’re at to where you want to be. Finally there is the elation and satisfaction of making progress. After that there is usually the awareness (and emotional low) that accomplishing your goal only opened the door to another challenge ahead. We all have to learn how to deal with the emotional ups and downs of that cycle, and making insecurity a tool for critical awareness and improvement.
