When I talk to women who are experiencing burnout, they say things like, “I’m tired of giving my all to help build up my boss's net worth,” or “I got a new team leader and they’re making me miserable, I just don’t want to work with him/her for my last five to 10 years of work.” Other common refrains are: “I want more control,” “I want more flexibility in my hours and days,” “I need a new challenge — to build another empire” and “I’d like to leave some sort of legacy.”
Reinvention is hard, and fear will be your companion every step of the way. Yet, it often leads to the greatest leaps in growth and satisfaction that you will experience. Taking action and steering your life in a new direction can be very empowering.
