Some of the greatest stories of success came as a result of someone’s tremendous drive and ambition. The great achievers we all know about were driven beyond the norm to unearth and manifest amazing results.
But there’s a dark side to this level of drive and ambition, and it’s when that same drive and ambition damages the people around you—the ones that you say you love.
We’ve all heard the great rags to riches stories, but have we heard about the price that was paid or the toll it took, on spouses and children?
I recently watched the new Netflix documentary on the famous producer, Quincy Jones, and there’s not many who have achieved as much as he has. He single-handedly created the careers of Michael Jackson, Oprah Winfrey, Will Smith, and more!
When Jones was asked at the end of the movie what he failed in, he said he failed in his family. A few divorces and much time away from his children did damage to those he loved the most.
Why is this? It’s because he was both discontent AND driven, and when that happens, you devote yourself solely to your goals and have little to nothing for those who need you the most.
That’s why we need to be content but driven, and that’s the subject of this week’s series from my Life Domination Online Coaching Program.
As always, I show the first episode of each week’s new series right here on my website, so a take a few minutes right now to be empowered by Episode 1 of Content But Driven.
