Meaningless and Success – Overwhelming yourself with work and flirting with burnout steals away the joy that your success should hold and makes it feel meaningless. Yes, you can push hard and go further at a faster pace, but are you really enjoying it when you do? No, you aren’t. So better to allow yourself the rest you need and enjoy the journey instead of trying to sprint ahead and overburdening yourself in the process.

Personal Myth and Communication – Connect with the lies that your negative inner dialogue are telling you and piece them out, work with them and find where they are false. Instead of letting the hamster wheel continue to run, step off and look at it more objectively. Find a better message than the negative ones constantly repeating in your head.
