Episode Info:

High achievers come with big ambitions and an intensity that helps them succeed. It’s one of the reasons they excel and are often seen as the super star leader or go-to member of the team.

That drive can also lead to higher levels of stress and the potential for burn out. It can show up as less-than their best at work and can even carry over to problems in relationships and life outside the office.

Today’s replay with a purpose addresses emotional intelligence. Guest Dr. Samantha Madhosingh explains that it is the key to sustaining high achievement and personal fulfillment.

2:20  What is emotional wellness?

  • How you feel about yourself.
  • How you show up in the world.
  • Empathy and the ability understand all the ways you contribute, not just through work and achievement.

6:08  How do we cope?

We see high achievers use busy-ness with no time to “worry” about feelings. When stress becomes untenable, Dr. Samantha shares that everything from overwork, to drinking and self-medicating is used to keep the high achiever going.

  • External drivers bring us happiness. Truth: What’s out there will never be enough if you don’t take care of your emotional wellbeing.
