“I might not hold out until my vacation”

Summer time is upon us, which for many means at least some vacation time to recharge for the next season. But for some, it may come too late. It’s not surprising that we often see the highest frequency of burnout or other stress-related incidences just around this time of year as many “crawl” to their vacations. The reality is that the timing of our much needed (and much deserved) moments of rest is often not organised around our needs but […]

Breaking the Fear of Failure ~ Part 3

  In previous posts about the fear of failure, we addressed the questions of “How will I fix the mistake?” and “Will I be able to recover from the mistake?”. But sometimes the most terrifying part is if others – especially those close to us – will ridicule and reject us for making the mistake.   This can come in a variety of forms including negativity (“It’s impossible”), self-righteousness (“I told you so”), rejection (being excluded, fired or turned down) […]
