By Lewis Howes

THE SUBTLE ART OF NOT GIVING UP. When you accomplish your dream, you think it’s going to be amazing. But it means you don’t have a dream anymore. You have to reinvent yourself. This may sound like a first-world problem, but it’s a common struggle. When you no longer have a big goal, life seems pointless. You might be living large, but you lack purpose. On this episode of The School of Greatness, I dive deep into how to motivate yourself after you accomplish your dreams with an incredible bestselling author: Mark Manson. Mark Manson is a NYTimes bestselling author, blogger, and internet entrepreneur. He writes about big ideas and gives life advice that doesn’t suck. Mark Manson's articles have been published and quoted in CNN, BBC News, Business Insider, and more. Mark wrote The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck, a book that had the kind of success that only happens every five years. But he has continued writing and growing even though what he does next will probably never reach the same level. Mark says that you don’t need to crush each day. You just need to slowly find new dreams. So get ready to learn how to keep reaching for new goals when you think you’ve reached the top on Episode 793.
