When Passion Becomes Burnout

WHAT WE COVER:

It's easy to get absorbed in growing a career and/or business. But sometimes this passion leads us to martyr ourselves for the sake of our professional growth. As a result, we burn out. 

It's not that passion itself is a problem.

It's that passion without boundaries causes us to sacrifice our own well-being on our quest to further our profession. This is where I invite you to consider - How are you defining success? And do you like that definition? 

Instead of success being focused on professional gains alone, let's consider success as it relates to the full experience of being a human.

When success expands to consider the fullness of life, it makes passion apply to more than just our professional endeavors. It makes passion about a zest for life itself. This expanded perspective releases the pressure on our profession, taking us away from burnout and towards true fulfillment.

Today's episode will help you approach passion so that it lifts you up instead of pulling you down into burnout. 

Because passion is something to enjoy. Not to cause us suffering by overly emphasizing one aspect of who we are at the expense of all else. This episode will help you get back in balance.
