69: Why Doing More Is A Problem, Do Less. You’re Enough
Jan 04, 2024 Episode 69
Elaine Lou Cartas

We need more people telling us that we, exactly as we are, are enough. More importantly, we need to say it to ourselves. Instead, we live in a society that makes living the greatest game. Like we win at life somehow by achieving what we’ve been told we need to be happy. MORE!

Open up your phone, turn on your laptop, and we are constantly sold this “need” for MORE:

  • More money
  • More followers and likes
  • More fries with that

With all this, we are also having:

  • More anxiety
  • More conflicts
  • More on our screens instead of being present with loved ones

And here's the kicker - humans in this modern age are never satisfied.

We reach one goal, like buying a fancy house or hitting a certain income level, and immediately we're asking ourselves:

"What's next? How can we get even more?"

But here's the real question we should be asking ourselves:

Does having more actually bring us more happiness?

What We Cover in This Episode:

  • The trap of continually striving for more even after learning to enjoy life.
  • Define your version of 'enough' rather than succumbing to societal pressures.
  • A podcast update that I share in this episode!
