Great discussion on @5wrightstuff today about "Paradise Syndrome" Particularly associated with high achievers, the wealthy and anyone who has achieved great success and are left feeling completely unfulfilled, with an overpowering feeling of dissatisfaction once they've achieved their goals. Once they've hit the benchmark 'I'm here now. I've achieved this - well, what now" To some leading to ill health and an extreme byproduct, suicide. Something I worked on a lot with high achievers in academia. SO I wonder if perhaps the culture of continuously "achieving" has been cultivated and been conditioned into us via our educational systems, the need to always have to strive to be aiming higher to be able to achieve any form of satisfaction, to pass that test, to go on and pass another test, to win this award, to get published etc. Thoughts welcome.
