We’ve all been there.
This feeling where we are continually striving to do our best, and categorically, succeed in our careers. Bonus points if the success is exponential. As the internet would say, ‘Hustle Hard’, but then again, the Internet doesn’t come with disclaimers. See, because this ‘hustle’ comes with a whole lot of fine print. Most importantly, it brings out our underlying patterns that inhibit our performance and happiness.
How can that happen?
Let’s make it easier, and list out a few examples. How many of these can you relate to?
If you answered with a ‘yes’ to any of these statements, I have some news for you. Over time, we’ve seen the impact of techniques rooted in psychology, coaching, meditation, and behavioral science in our (and many others) lives.

Identify what’s limiting you?
In your path towards your aspirations, what do you think limits you the most? Or what is getting in the way of reaching your maximum potential? Two prevalent conditions are listed below. Which of these two categories do you most identify with?

|Anxiety, lack of motivation & energy, depression, stress, constant troubling thoughts, emotions that get easily aroused, (overly reactive), etc.||Lack of clear goals, collaboration, communication, confidence, dealing with difficult people/situations, impulsive decision making, time management, etc.|
It can be beneficial to explore this spectrum of ‘Emotional Fitness.’ Where you lie on this can be discovered with some simple questions. Let’s start with this first question.
What kind of changes are you looking for?
Change works at different levels. First and foremost, you need to know what kind of changes you are looking for..Non-Sustainable changes are often superficial changes that may not last. Sustainable changes are much more complete and more in-depth, and these changes last over time. Are you looking for sustainable benefits (and, more importantly, ready to commit to achieving this?
Here’s a quick example: The more confidence you feel, the more you will project this outwardly. Without improving your authentic being, it is difficult just to practice being confident. It will only take you so far.
Which of these solutions will help you the most?
Now let’s put both these axes together.
This illustration results from my understanding after having worked with world experts and researchers in psychotherapy, coaching, meditation, etc., and testing these very same methods on 1000’s of users.
