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.

  1. Try This Easy Trick to Improve Your Reputation at Work

    How many times have you heard the phrase “You are what you eat”? The idea behind this now-infamous diet mantra is that in order to be fit and healthy, you have to eat nutritious food. The take-home message? Your actions have direct ramifications for your body and your mind.

    Now, consider this spin: “You are what you say.” Fair or not, what you communicate to others can lead others to make assumptions about your character–a concept called spontaneous trait inference.

    This psychological phenomenon holds that people are perceived as possessing traits they describe in others. Several experiments have shown that people can associate traits with others mindlessly without logical rationale.

    Think of it this way: the more you talk about a certain trait– even if you’re describing another person and not yourself–the more salient and memorable that trait becomes in the other person’s mind. Through an associative process in the brain, they start to think of you coupled with that trait (kind of like when you hear “zebra,” you may think “stripes”).

    Spontaneous trait inference is crucial to keep in mind at the office for the sake of both your current job and your career prospects. Here’s how to use this concept to boost your reputation, influence and become exceptionally more likable in the process:

    No Gossip – No Exceptions

    As if you needed another reason to keep the chitchat in check, spontaneous trait inference means that every time you share something negative about someone, the person you’re blathering to might start thinking of you as the one characterized by that trait.

  2. 3 Ways to Outsmart Imposter Syndrome

    Tell me if you can relate to any of the following:

    • You feel like you’re not qualified for your job or cut out for the work you do.
    • You’re uncomfortable when praised for your success, because you feel like you haven’t earned it.
    • You fear you’ll be “found out” and exposed for the fraud you are.

    If these sound like thoughts that run through your head, you may be experiencing something called Impostor Syndrome.

    And you wouldn’t be alone: over 70% of people report experiencing Impostor Syndrome at some point in their career.

    Impostor Syndrome refers to the inability to internalize success — when people have a persistent belief that they are unintelligent or incompetent.

    It manifests in feelings that you’re a fake who will be exposed as incapable or ill-equipped, despite plenty of evidence to prove you’re skilled and competent.

    So called “impostors” habitually attribute their accomplishments to luck, chance, connections, charm, or other external factors.

    How Impostor Syndrome Holds You Back

    A core negative belief that you are inadequate and unworthy can greatly damage your professional growth.

    Because you fear being exposed as an Impostor, you may do things to avoid embarrassment and humiliation. For example, you may procrastinate and never finish a project to avoid the shame of criticism.

    Impostor Syndrome can also turn you into a productivity addict, which is just a convenient ploy to keep yourself addicted to the validation of working hard.
