A long time ago, you likely learned that you had problems holding you back from your goals. And problems needed to be fixed.
So every day you did your best to fix yourself, or learned a new technique to fix what was wrong. You read the latest book on self-development. You tried even harder, pushing yourself.
So did we. But one day we realised that none of this was working. Not pushing, and certainly not seeing ourselves as problems to fix. All it was doing was increasing our stress, taking us closer to burnout. Each of us pushes back if someone pushes us–even if that someone is ourself.
