fear of judgement
fear of failure
putting our own needs last
being afraid to say NO
and your unhealthy relationship to productivity
Occupational Therapists tell me all the time that they really want to get off the path to burnout and find their way toward a life with more FULFILLMENT, AUTHENTICITY, PURPOSE, & VITALITY in all of their roles.
Often they are often lacking the clarity, courage, and calm to choose a direction and persist in taking the steps toward lasting positive change in the way they live and work. They are often burning out with more responsibility and expectation in all areas of their life than is manageable.
As an OT myself, I get it. I've started a private practice as a side gig, built it up to a 6 figure business, and in order not to burn out, I pivoted to something outside of the clinical box. Here's the secret, I was also fearful - afraid of judgement, failure, and even afraid of success. (Who did I think I was anyway?) I did a ton of personal development and took my own advice as a mental health OT in order to move toward THRIVING.
