You’ve heard the saying, “No pain. No gain.” The polar opposite may also be true: Gain = Pain.
There are times when our very successes—or the things we think are success—actually eat away at our vitality. We look in the mirror and we don’t like what we see.
That happened to my friend and mentor, Patrick Morley. Back in 1985, he was leading a successful commercial real-estate enterprise. That was before the Tax Reform Act of 1986 shook the foundations of his business and what he thought of success.
My Reinventure Me co-host Armin Assadi and I recently visited with Pat to discuss his latest book, the 25th anniversary edition of Man in the Mirror, his personal journey of recovery from success sickness, and how he transitioned from the world of commerce into ministry.
If you’re considering transitioning from business to ministry or if you’re filled with worry, feeling trapped, like you’re on a treadmill, you’ll find encouragement from the insights Pat Morley shares in our latest episode, Do you have success sickness? An interview with best-selling author, Patrick Morley. You can find this episode on the web or on iTunes and Stitcher Radio.
Have you succumbed to success sickness? What did you do to get better?
