Imagine having a superpower to heal your distress while empathetically giving yourself permission to prioritize your peace, preserve your wellbeing, and elevate your perspective on what success and happiness mean to you.

The American workplace is experiencing a chronic stress epidemic that’s making us sick from head to toe. Record numbers of employees are breaking down mentally, emotionally, and physically. The pandemic triggered something that has been dormant all along. The response manifested itself with the great resignation and quiet quitting, but in reality, people still have ambitions and need to work. So, what to do?

How do you relieve the build-up of emotions that arise—anxiety, anger, stress, sadness, even sickness caused by working in toxic environments, working more for less, being passed over for well-deserved promotions, being blind-sided by unexpected responsibilities, dragged along by lack of boundaries? How do you heal the burnout, frustration or disillusionment, when the cost of success seems too high, and fulfilment is fleeting?

This book teaches you to use your power to make your pain pay you back. You have the agency to control the controllables; you can reduce unwanted emotions, thoughts, and behaviors. This book offers affirming, science-based self-care strategies and tools that you can use to overcome personal or professional storms, empowering yourself to be your own hero and promoting yourself to CEO of your life and wellbeing.

You’re Successful, But Are You OK? is packed with funny, relatable stories and inspirational affirmations to clear stress overload, allowing you to ignite the flow of healing, happiness, and holistic success in your life, now.
