While I was in the role of General Manager of the No. 1 boutique hotel in the busiest ski resort in North America…I was afraid to turn my brain off for more than a second at a time.
I was worried that the moment I let myself stop thinking about work…a ball would drop. I would forget about something, someone would need me, I’d miss a deadline, or even an insignificant email. The mere thought of falling behind was enough to make sure I was always ahead of the game.
I couldn’t settle into enjoying my own life anymore, because no matter where I was…I was in boss mode.
I was so narrowed in on success that I couldn’t appreciate everything I had.
I was so focused on growth and promotion that I wasn’t truly experiencing where I was.
I was so caught up in maintaining my power that I wasn’t able to appreciate my softness.
I was a woman in a man’s world and I was beginning to lose touch with myself.
I didn’t like who I was.
I didn’t like who I was becoming.
I didn’t like the way I was behaving.
I didn’t align with my values anymore.
I didn’t like the way I was showing up for others.
And with these realizations, I knew I needed to make a change.
So I went on a journey to redefine success.
