    What happens when an ENFP reaches their dreams?

    I have reached mine, and now I feel like I am sabotaging myself.
    I am getting stressed out.
    I have nothing else to reach for career-wise. I am also a type 3 so I don't know if that changes anything.

    Can anyone else relate?

    that's weird....how can you ever reach your dreams? i mean, at least me, i'm quite a perfectionist. but, i don't know, don't you have other interests? the world is so vast and diverse i'm sure there's new challenges for you......change job maybe? go work in a different city? different company? i don't know....

    i kinda almost auto generate dreams.
    i always want more. always hungry.

    They start vibrating really quickly until eventually their head flies off into space.

    Being an idealist, maybe help more people? Instead of helping 1, try to help 50? If you're already helping 50, start an organization and try to help 700. If you're already helping 700, try to help 14,000, etc, etc, etc.

    i'm guessing that's your problem moreso than ENFP. i can't imagine ever "finishing"? there is so much to do...

    i would think if you've hit the top career-wise than you've made enough money to not need a career anymore...



    if i hit that point i'd probably go build schools in nepal or something.

    Well here's more details.
    My dream has been to work in the film industry (Ew not porn, perverts).
    I went to college that didn't have film school so I had to major in communications which is kind of a general degree. I graduated and worked several jobs that either shut down due to poor economy or the businesses never actually paid me for the work I've done. So please do not tell me that I don't try or have no goals. I tried for years doing restaurant jobs to make ends meet or working in media companies that screwed me over. I paid my dues. Then after loads of prayer, I got an opportunity to work on a movie. And since that day I've been working on a new project and networking like crazy to find the next one. My dream came true. I work on big budget movies. Ones that go to the movie theaters. Ones you've seen. Sure I'd love to direct or act but I don't need that. It's not something that would make me happy. It's just minor details in my big picture.

    I feel so blessed to hVe my opportunities. It's seriously out of my hands! I'm like man I'd love to work on that and then I get an offer. I've been working non-stop.

    I move. I travel. I go city to city. Pack up and move. So I am getting new situations so my job isn't boring. It's wonderful. But I fear that I'm going to sabotage myself to get back my goals.

    And the idea of helping people. I'm
    An ENFP. I WANT TO SAVE THE WORLD. I am in constant pain from taking people's problems on myself. I do try and help the people around me as would any of you. It's to the point where my istj thinks it's unhealthy how much I want to help people and make their lives better.

    I mean I dunno. Things are great but in worried I will miss having to work so hard for something unattainable. I'm not saying I don't have to work hard to find another movie because believe me I do. It's just that my big picture outlook is gone and that scares me.

    So no enfp can relate?? Must be a type 3 problem.

    My career has always been my goal. Sure I'm
    Not making millions but money has never been my goal.

    ^ Career is number one for me as well.

    But I know there will come a time when I realize that I have gone as far as I can go with my work. I've figured the way I've come to solve this is to branch out--take on a different task on top of my career. Start up some sort of volunteer-non-profit organizational work.. so I can help others, but still be secure in my money and career.
