The Reality of Chasing Success and How to tackle It

Everyone knows that success breeds success. Success breeds failure, and failure breeds resilience. If you’re looking to live a more fulfilled life, chances are you already acknowledge that you lack identity and meaning in your life. But what if you could turn this weakness into strength? What if you could enhance the quality of your day-to-day by focusing on something that truly matters? That’s right – solve the riddle of why people chase success and how to tackle it! This article will discuss the profound nature of chasing success and how to tackle it. It will also outline some strategies for combating it in your own life. Let’s get started:

What is chasing success?

Chasing success is the behavior that people engage in when they want something more badly than they want others. It’s a behavior that we see in all areas of life, not just in the workplace. We all have times in our lives when we want something more than we’re willing to give. We all have goals that we want to reach, but we put too much pressure on ourselves to get there the “right” way. The thing is, when you have a goal that’s too big for you to reach alone, or one that involves doing something you’re not very comfortable doing, you start to try to force the issue. You evaluate yourself negatively for not being good enough to achieve your goals and you put a lot of pressure on yourself to succeed. This is the root of the problem: you’re putting too much pressure on yourself. This pressure can lead to frustration, anxiety and depression.

Why does chasing success exist?

It’s human nature. We’re all driven by two things – our human nature to want to be successful and our human nature to want to avoid failure. When we start to put pressure on ourselves because we think we have to be successful, we start to internalize all the negative thoughts and feelings that success might bring. We start to believe those negative thoughts and feelings, and they begin to shape our behavior. We end up in a cycle: we become more protective of our success and less open to the idea of failure. We only succeed because we give ourselves permission to fail.

The reality of Chasing Success and How to Tackle It

Success isn’t an accident. Success is a choice. We all have the ability to choose what success feels like for us. If you want to be successful, you can. If you choose to be successful, you will be. If you don’t choose to be successful, you won’t be. Success is a choice we make for ourselves. Once we make that choice, there’s no turning back. We have the ability to choose to success, or we have the ability to choose not to.

Strategies for combating Chasing Success in Your Own Life

There are three main strategies that people have used to combat the feeling of chasing success and make it in life – reduce the pressure, reduce the stress and improve your self-awareness. The first and foremost thing that you can do to combat the urge to chase success is to stop putting pressure on yourself. You have to sit down with yourself and ask yourself: “is this what I want?” If the answer is yes, then congratulations, you’ve taken a big step towards combating the urge to chase success. If the answer is no, then you have to examine the root of your no and find a way to change it. Next, you have to recognize the difference between having and wanting. When we’re stuck in a rut, we often feel like we want things, but we have nothing to show for it. We have our job, our health, our friendships, etc. But what we don’t have is a life outside of that. What we want is a way out. A way to break out of this rut and achieve what we desire. And the only way to do that is to have. Having is the ultimate goal, not just something you want to survive on.


There is a difference between having and wanting. The difference is that having is comfortable and desired, while wanting is uncomfortable and unwanted. Success is a result of having what you desire. You cannot have what you don’t want. The only way to have what you desire is to find what you don’t want, and then trade it for what you do want. Once you do that, you will be successful in ways that you could never have imagined.
