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.

Working with Melody has been a revelation I didn’t know I was waiting for. Everything felt beyond my control leaving me trapped and stuck, and no matter who I reached out to, I never quite felt understood. Even just a few minutes in, Melody’s clear understanding and empathy was such an unbelievable relief — someone got what was happening and that my feelings and reactions were entirely normal. There’s not enough space in the world to go into what a difference just a few weeks have made – restoring control and balance in my life – but I will not ever forget that first five minutes.

  1. Boost the Odds of Achieving Your Goals With This 1 Simple Shift

    The New Year is right around the corner and with year-end planning underway, you’re probably mapping out what you want to accomplish in the next 12 months ahead.

    Whether you’re resolving to leave your dead-end job, speak up more in meetings or finally get started on the side projects you’ve been putting off, there’s one indisputable truth that’s impossible to ignore: change is hard.

    Nearly one-half of Americans make New Year’s resolutions, but just 8% follow-through and accomplish their goals.

    Most of us are familiar with the cycle: You’re jazzed in January only to find yourself derailed and demotivated within a few weeks. You beat yourself up for failing to achieve your full potential despite your best intentions.

    But creating deep, lasting change is less about willpower and more about designing smart, effective goals.

    You don’t have to settle for average for yet another year. Try this new method to set New Year’s resolutions that create real results.

    Turn Resolutions Into Questions

    Asking questions and then answering them–instead of making statements–is a more effective method for sticking to your promises, research finds.

    Enter: the “Questolution“.

    Instead of pledging to start a business in the New Year, it would be more effective to ask “How might I go about getting my first client?” or “What commitments might prevent me from going all in?”

    This type of solution-oriented inquiry has been shown to produce consistent, significant changes in a variety of contexts from exercise and eating healthier to voting and gender stereotyping.

  2. What Your Arguments Over Money Are Really About (And How To Resolve Financial Fights)

    Money can be a loaded topic, especially when business, family and finances mix. It’s one of the biggest sources of relationship problems—and it can be the toughest to resolve.

    Throughout the course of any partnership, butting heads over spending and saving habits is to be expected. Couples can face financial rough patches that are more emotionally complex than deciding whether to splurge on take-out this week. When this happens, it can feel overwhelming and affect your ability to focus at work and home.

    That’s because money fights are rarely about dollars and cents. They’re usually a conflict of values, morals and family traditions or a battle over independence, control or security.

    Here are some tips for navigating tricky situations where family and finances mix.

    Scenario: A family member hasn’t paid back a loan, and your partner is furious.

    Disagreements over how much to support a relative can rupture trust between partners and create a loyalty struggle. One person may see helping a relative as a duty, while the other sees it as inappropriately bailing them out.

    This can create triangulation—a toxic relationship pattern that pits you against your partner. To cope, you may avoid having conversations about money with your spouse or starting lying about additional funds you lend your family member, which only makes the situation worse.

    How to Deal

    Speak to the family member in question directly, as a team. If the money lent is jointly shared with your partner, give them the seat at the table they deserve.
