Master your psychology with therapeutic insights for your life, relationships, & career

Top-performers seem like they have it all. They’re…

  • Highly motivated & Ambitious
  • Smart & Educated
  • Striving to be the best in all areas of their life

But the unspoken secret is that on the inside many of them feel like they’re:

  • Constantly taking on way too much
  • Always making sacrifices
  • Fighting a losing battle against self-doubt and unhappiness

The truth is that these thoughts are natural, and if you feel that despite all of your accomplishments you’re still not at peace with yourself, you’re not alone.

Unfortunately there is a flipside to success that can deeply affect the types of women who are always trying to achieve more. The emotional intelligence and ambition that often give them their edge can unfortunately also lead them to feel an increased sense of self-doubt and sabotages them from fully enjoying their achievements.

Sometimes they feel like they’re just on an incredible string of luck and are constantly afraid that their next project will be the failure that exposes them as a fraud (Imposter Syndrome). Others worry that with each new accomplishment what they’ve achieved is too good to be true and it’s going to come crashing down sooner rather than later (Upper Limit Problem). Or their success is overshadowed by baggage from dysfunctional relationships and negative patterns that follow them into the office.

Your success doesn’t have to be a source of suffering.

The good news is that many women have overcome the emotional challenges that come with success. I’m Melody, and I’ve found my calling helping women like you put an end to the cycles of guilt and unhappiness that hold you back from a lasting and balanced feeling of fulfillment.

What would it mean for you if you could fully enjoy your next promotion or achievement, instead of immediately worrying about whether you’re going to live up to the additional responsibility? How much more could you do each day if you were fully engaged instead of having the complications of a rocky relationship constantly dividing your attention? Don’t you deserve to be confident and content instead of always comparing yourself to others and feeling like you don’t measure up?

If you’re ready to break away from your self-destructive behaviors, I’d love to help you out. Subscribe to my email list for practical, weekly guidance to help you master your psychology using therapeutic insights for your life, relationships, & career.

I am so glad I found Melody! She’s helped me tremendously! Melody confronted hurts I had been reenacting for years, but didn’t dwell on the negative. She helped me process years of family problems and learn how to constructively overcome trust issues that were holding me back in romantic relationships. She gave me concrete actions to move forward and I established firmer boundaries. Immediately, I saw a difference in my everyday life: my anxiety and dissatisfaction was replaced by happiness, optimism, and ease. Now, I can confidently approach healthy relationships with men and friends.

  1. 6 Tips For Great Sleep (No Matter How Stressed Out You Are)

    woman-918981_960_720

    If you’re like most people, you’ve been affected by stress-related sleep problems at some point or another, lying awake at night filled with anxiety about your career and the future.

    Often everyday worries about impending deadlines and your to-do list give way to bigger, more stressful questioning, “Is this job really what I want to be doing with my life? What if I quit? Will I ever discover what I’m truly passionate about?”

    Your mental wheels start turning, anxiety builds, and before you know it, you realize an hour has passed since you turned out the lights. You worry that if you don’t sleep now tomorrow will be completely unproductive. Needless to say, this doesn’t relax you any further, and spin further into the cycle of insomnia.

    The crushing exhaustion that hits after only a night or two of sleeplessness is enough to derail anyone. It also makes you more susceptible to emotional outbursts and missed deadlines. Eighty-three percent of workers say they’re stressed about their jobs and nearly 50 percent say work-related stress is interfering with their sleep. Sleeping too little — defined as less than six hours each night — is one of the best predictors of burnout.

    Sleep is crucial to mental acuity. The amount of quality rest you get has a direct impact on your ability to handle challenges, solve problems, and feel happy throughout the day. It’s important, then, to be sure you’re looking out for your relationship with sleep by establishing healthy, strategic boundaries with work stressors so that they don’t sabotage your rejuvenation time.

    Control Your Anger When Work Drives You Nuts — 5 Proven Strategies

    At one point or another, we’ve all felt totally irritated while at work: You pull an all-nighter on a project that then gets scrapped, a client criticizes your team for no apparent reason or your co-worker shows up late for a meeting again, dumping all the prep work on you.

    These office aggravations can make your blood boil. Your focus is immediately hijacked from the important task at hand. Instead, your mind goes into fight-or-flight mode and you become reactionary; not thinking clearly, blaming others or beating yourself up for getting upset. In this state, you’re prone to poor judgements and saying things you may regret later.

    It’s perfectly natural to experience a wide range of emotions in the workplace—including anger. Negative emotions are bound to come up on the job just as they do in our personal lives – and that’s not a bad thing.

    Learning to productively communicate your emotions is key to boosting your emotional intelligence, which can make you a better leader and boost success across the board. In fact, getting fired up can motivate you and give you more focus to solve the problem at hand.

    Learning to manage feelings of anger in a constructive, professional way can help you channel your frustration and get what you want — without earning you a reputation as the person in the office who can’t control their temper.

    Here are five ways to deal when work’s making you angry:
