Are you caught in a cycle where work consumes you?
The path you’ve chosen and the career you’ve built fill you with purpose and accomplishment.
But lately, you’ve noticed a troubling shift where doubt and anxiety threaten to overshadow your professional achievements.
During meetings, a sudden and uncontrollable blushing overtakes you when it’s your turn to speak.
The weight of your newly acquired management position intensifies, pressuring you to be more visible in your workplace.
While part of you is excited by the possibilities, another part is gripped by an overwhelming fear of not measuring up.
These conflicting emotions lead you to take a detour on your way to work one morning, turning back and calling in sick.
The aftermath is the hardest part.
You can’t stop replaying the scenes from the last meeting and dissecting your every word and gesture.
A sense of shame haunts you. You diligently prepare for the next presentation, but the guilt lingers, refusing to release its grip.
The desire to succeed professionally was the driving force that propelled you away from your hometown, seeking new horizons. Now, you worry that you may become trapped in this place, unable to break free.
The fear of losing everything you’ve achieved looms over you, casting doubt on your prospects.
Slipping into mediocrity or losing your edge…
If these are your fears, you likely hold yourself and others to incredibly high standards.
Your colleagues and peers admire your intellect, work ethic, and ability to stay one step ahead.
But deep inside, you’re detached from joy and fulfillment.
On Saturday evenings, while your spouse watches TV in bed, you’re still engrossed in work projects and checking emails. Despite your best intentions, establishing healthy boundaries is challenging, leaving you with a sense of failure.
Your loved ones notice your absent-mindedness, complaining that you no longer listen or pay attention. You try to feign engagement, but your gaze passes through them, their presence barely registering. It’s not until the next day that you realize why nobody was home: They told you about the important game, but you missed it entirely. The weight of that realization crashes down on you.
