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. The Surprising Truth About Finding Your Passion

    Like many Millennials, I was told I could become whatever I wanted to be when I grew up. Before the age of ten I cycled through dreams of acting, singing, and becoming a veterinary pharmacist (true story).

    Trying to find my passion was a near-obsession that followed me into adulthood. Ironically, all along I ignored what was naturally good at, including my knack for empathy, my love for writing, and an incurable curiosity about human behavior.

    They say hindsight is 20/20, so today I clearly see how these strengths shaped my career. But for a long time, I searched for my passion as if it was a lost treasure chest that I simply needed a map to find.

    Why Finding Your Passion Is a Myth

    Despite what we’re told, passion is something that unfolds over time. It’s discovered through life experiences. Your “dream job” isn’t an exact destination, either. It’s constantly evolving. The ideal career when you’re in your early 30s may eventually become a poor fit, even by the time you turn 40.

    So what do you do if you have no idea what your passion or life calling is?

    First, don’t panic. Finding your purpose doesn’t happen overnight. It’s a messy, iterative undertaking that takes time, patience, and a healthy dose of self-reflection. You’ll get there, but you have to start by taking small steps.

    That starts by asking yourself some key questions about how your past experiences, struggles, and triumphs have shaped you.

  2. Proven Ways To Do Less And Be More Productive

    You start the workday off with the best intentions, hopeful that you’ll finally be able to tackle a difficult project that’s been looming over your head. But by mid-afternoon you’re stressed, tired, and can’t seem to focus on much of anything — let alone dive into work that requires intense concentration.

    That big project? It’ll have to wait until tomorrow.

    If you’ve found yourself in this self-defeating cycle, you’re certainly not alone. It can seem nearly impossible to make time for cognitively demanding tasks, what author Cal Newport calls deep work.

    How do some people make room for creativity even with a crazy busy schedule while others get stuck in brain fog and procrastination?

    Doing less, not more, is the secret to achieving mental clarity so that your creativity can thrive. Instead of adding more goals to your plate, you have to limit inputs coming at you.

    Here are a few small changes that can yield big results.

    1. Limit the energy drain of constant updates

    Social media is like a black hole that sucks you in with endless updates, wasting your time and zapping your focus. Use a tool to quiet your news feed or remove it all together.

    This will allow you uninterrupted serenity to think and create – two essential elements for happiness at work. You’ll be amazed by how much you can accomplish and how much better you’ll feel without the deluge of posts cluttering your screen (and mind).
