Day 6 No Striving Challenge – 4 Common Behaviors of Striving
In our quest for proving our value and worthiness we often get caught in one, if not all, of the common behaviors of striving. These behaviors are established with the underlying desire to get our emotional needs met, because at some level we feel a void.

Over time, more and more aspects of these behaviors dropped away for me. Sometimes, however, I met the releasing of them with a lot of resistance….and that was my indicator that it definitely was time to let them go.
When resistance kicks in, that is a really good sign that you are ready to let go of the behaviors that haven’t been serving you. Be warned – as what you no longer need rises to the surface, your ego mind gets louder!
