A goal is one half of a problem.
The other half is not having accomplished the goal.
Achieving a goal feels good temporarily. It raises our self-confidence and self-esteem temporarily.
Whether we achieve a goal or fail by giving up, we wind up with a new goal / problem.
The Essential Truth is that everything is perfect the way it is.
“I just had to let it go.”
— John Lennon in Watching the Wheels
