Wanting More AND Avoiding Burnout

female ceo women in business Dec 28, 2021

For me, it started as a child - I always wanted the best grades. I was surrounded by messages that told me that achievement meant significance: if I got As it was the B that got attention. If I was on a team, the question was, ‘Why not the captain?’

I was happy - but that wasn’t enough. These thoughts and the feelings they generated kept me in a prison for so long, always having that self-talk of wanting to achieve more, to be better, earn more, be the best.

Because I can. I always proved myself right. And that just solidified my views - go for more and you’ll get it! Big pat on the back. I know that I can always do better, have a busier business, make more sales and increase profit. But at what expense?


Burnout is a serious matter and it’s very real. Burnout is defined as:

Burnout is a syndrome conceptualized as resulting from chronic workplace stress that has not been successfully managed. It is characterized by three dimensions:

  • feelings of energy depletion or exhaustion;

  • increased mental distance from one’s job, or feelings of negativism or cynicism related to one's job; and

  • reduced professional efficacy.

Burnout refers specifically to phenomena in the occupational context but the impact of burnout can seriously affect all aspects of a person’s life including relationships, and physical and mental health.

So is that sense of achievement worth what you have to sacrifice to get there? And even more important - who are you doing it all for? The reality is that if you are achieving a lot but doing it for external validation - it will never be enough. This is your rebel mind/unhealed inner child driving the bus.

Moving Forward

Can you remind yourself that you’re good, you got this, you’ve done so much while still trying to achieve more? Compare the energy of striving from a place of power and feeling great with it against striving from a place of proving yourself for the approval of others.

The thing is, you have complete control over this!  Your thinking controls everything!  You have that part of you that knows, you’ve done so much to date. You are amazing! Don’t forget that.

And let’s take all of you on this journey to grow more, so much more, see how much you can do!

The truth is that when I had it all, I still felt like I had nothing.  I had a 7-figure business, kids, a husband and a dream life (reminded daily by people!) but I still felt unfulfilled.

Lots of coaching and self-development later, I have complete fulfillment whatever happens (most days) AND I have a big vision for where I’m going - I’ve only just started!

So can you heal and love yourself enough to be both happy and fulfilled now, as well as going for that bigger goal that you absolutely should go for (and have lots of fun along the way!)!

Take the rebel mind/inner child on the journey with you - hold her hands and show her you’ve got her back!
