Sometimes when we are trying to achieve something that is very important to us, we can become very anxious. We want to get to the goal as soon as possible. But our level of anxiety can get the best of us.
Although we could all use some motivation, when it gets to a level where we are anxious it has the effect of a puppy that is trying to run quickly on a shiny floor. We may not get very far when we are virtually running in place.
