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 too much
  • Stuck in a cycle of overwhelm, stress, and overthinking
  • Fighting a losing battle against self-doubt

If despite all of your accomplishments, you’re still not at peace with yourself, you’re not alone. And you’re in the right place.

There’s flipside to success that can deeply affect smart, sensitive high achievers. The emotional depth and ambition that give you your edge can also lead to self-doubt and keep you from fully enjoying your career.

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

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. 5 Steps to Stay Sane When Launching a Side Hustle

    side hustle

    Slash careerists, moonlighting, freelancing. TThere are many terms for working extra jobs, but no matter what you call it, more than 44 million people have side hustles.

    Millennials aren’t the only ones creating new sources of income while holding down a day job. Baby boomers are cashing in on the trend as well. Soon-to-be-retirees out-earn Millennials when it comes to side hustle income, taking home an average of $1,000 a month.

    The opportunity and potential for side hustles is exciting. Many successful entrepreneurs have turned a passion project into a full-time business.

    But making the time for a side hustle when you’re already busy can be a challenge. Starting a new venture also carries a lot of stress. There’s no shortage of emotional ups-and-downs when you’re embarking on any creative endeavor, side hustles included. The late nights and hard work can take a toll.

    How do you stay sane while building a side hustle?

    Here are a few tips to help:

    1. Rely on systems and a schedule

    Look for ways to limit decision fatigue by automating parts of your life. Create a capsule wardrobe. Outsource laundry, dry cleaning, or meal planning. That will create more margin and white space so you can focus on meaningful work.

    What gets scheduled gets done. Build time for your side hustle into your schedule, even if that means waking up a few hours earlier for a month or zeroing your inbox after the kids go to bed.

    5 Habits of Highly Mindful People

    Why do some people seem to handle challenges with grace and ease while other crumble under stress? A growing body of research points to mindfulness as the answer.

    Put simply, mindfulness is, “the act of being intensely aware of what you’re sensing and feeling at every moment — without interpretation or judgment”, according to the Mayo Clinic.

    What is Mindfulness?

    Most people assume mindfulness involves sitting in cross-legged meditation for hours on end. But it’s actually a collection of practices and skills that can help you cope with stress more effectively, manage your emotions better, and improve your focus and productivity. Beyond meditation, other mindfulness practices include focused breathing, self-compassion exercises, and training yourself to be mentally self-aware.

    Eighty percent of the world’s most successful people have some sort of daily mindfulness practice. Here’s what they do differently:

    Mindfulness Practice

    1. They don’t get hooked by their emotions.

    When unpleasant emotions arise, we’re often quick to respond by rationalizing, blaming others, or trying desperately to push them down. Mindful people don’t react to fleeting feelings. They respond in a calm, controlled manner. They acknowledge their emotions, label them, and find compassionate, self-respecting ways to move forward.

    2. They pay attention to their repetitive thoughts.

    Out of the 60 to 70,000 thoughts we have every day, estimates suggest 98% of them are the same. Mindful people look for exaggerated, irrational, or unrealistic thoughts that may cause them undue worry. They choose constructive self-talk over falling victim to their inner critic.
