“When you live to work, that’s where you get burned out. To reverse that, you’ve got to work to live — that’s really where the burnout recovery strategies come in.”

— Dr. Sharon Grossman


Have you ever struggled with burnout?


Statistically, two-thirds of workers will end up burning out at some point in their career — and the pandemic has created even more stress, anxiety, and mental health issues for many of us.


My guest, success coach Dr. Sharon Grossman, is a psychologist with over 20 years of experience helping her high-achieving clients go from fried and frazzled to energized and exhilarated!


“When you manage your mind, and you’re no longer stuck in those limiting beliefs and self sabotage, then you lighten your load,” Sharon explains, “because our thoughts are these heavy things that we carry around… people who are burned out aren’t just burned out, they’re experiencing overwhelm and anxiety and depression.”


Burnout can manifest in a number of different ways — but no matter which form it takes, it can have major consequences for your productivity and mental health.


Listen now to learn how to reduce your chances of experiencing burnout — and what to do if you fall victim to it.


In‌ ‌this‌ ‌episode,‌ ‌you’ll discover:‌ ‌

  • What causes burnout — and why high achievers are so prone to it 
  • 2 symptoms that will help you recognize when you are on the verge of burnout 
  • The different ways that burnout can manifest itself — and how to decode yours
