There are millions of overachievers – just like you and me – struggling with these issues, wondering if there’s a better way.
Ready to get off the success wheel? You have two options:
- Continue to work yourself to death to attain endless professional achievements.
- Slow down, rethink your approach, and consider looking elsewhere for happiness and satisfaction.
