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.

The good news is that thousands of people just like you have discovered how to get out their own way, improve their inner game, and level up their careers.

When I began working with Melody, I was at a crossroads personally and professionally. I was struggling with low self-confidence and had many fears holding me back at work and in my relationships. Working with Melody helped me learn how to stop internalizing negative feelings and how to stop comparing myself to others. Melody helped me push beyond a series of losses (a difficult break up and a job loss) to come out stronger on the other side. The result: I felt more in control of my life, began to speak up, be more assertive, and value myself in relationships. I highly recommend Melody for anyone who feels lost or confused on their current path.

  1. Please Stop Telling Me To Leave My Comfort Zone

    comfort zone

    Raise your hand if you’re sick of hearing that life begins at the edge of your comfort zone. I know I am.

    It is impossible to escape the gurus and influencers on social media who preach that choosing safety is self-sabotage. That without getting uncomfortable on a daily basis, I’ll never get anywhere in life, my lack of courage realized.

    “It’s never as scary as it looks,” the Stanford grad student Yubing Zhang chants in a widely viewed TEDx talk, Life Begins at the End of Your Comfort Zone — one of several talks on this theme that the influential conference has given a platform to.

    When you stay in your comfort zone, “you maintain flawed beliefs about yourself or you hold on to guilt and self-doubt”, the bestselling leadership writer and motivational speaker Jack Canfield says.

    “A comfort zone is a beautiful place, but nothing grows there, is a popular graphic post on Instagram.

    And Eleanor Roosevelt’s most-touted quote, “Do one thing every day that scares you”, adorns everything from office coffee mugs to wallpaper.

    believed these quotes once. My experience, however, taught me something different. When I pushed my comfort zone relentlessly, as the leadership experts advise, it led me straight into burnout. I learned the hard way to define — and, more importantly, to honor — the boundaries of my comfort zone. Since then, it has been a huge asset that has helped me make big strides.

  2. Use These 8 Words in Your Emails To Get People To Reply

    Nothing is more frustrating than pouring time into a well-written email only to be ghosted.

    Whether you’re reaching out to an influencer in an effort to build your network, pitching your services to prospective customers, or simply asking your boss a question, we pour a great deal of time and mental energy into our inboxes.

    That’s why it can be so discouraging to hear crickets. I’m sure you’ve been there before: you perseverate over every little word that goes into an email response, hit send, then proceed to constantly refresh your inbox until you hear back.

    It turns out there’s a very effective way to get people to reply to your emails, cutting down your stress with it.

    All it takes is showing some genuine appreciation. Science shows that a dose of pro-social pleasantries may more than double the odds your request earns a response.

    Just say thanks (science says so)

    study conducted by Wharton psychologists Adam Grant and Francesca Gino found that expressing gratitude increased email response rate by 66 percent. Specifically, simply adding the eight word phrase, “Thank you so much. I am very grateful” more than doubled response rates.

    Why? Appreciation a powerful intrinsic motivator that spurs people to action, particularly on behalf of other people. Helping others gives us a strong self-esteem boost.

    As Grant explains on Linkedin:

    My least favorite emails made demands instead of expressing appreciation. One person wrote, “We should definitely meet,” and another implored, “Please answer this question.” In my research, I’ve found that people provide more extensive and useful help when it’s an enjoyable choice than when it’s driven by perceived pressure or obligation….The punch line: a little thanks goes a long way, not only for encouraging busy people to help you, but also for motivating them to help others like you.
