Leadership Expert Vanessa Loder:
“I just felt all this internal pressure to succeed: be good at business; be successful with my career; look really skinny and hot; be a good mom and show up for my kids; be a good wife and a good friend, and all these things. It would lead to feeling overwhelmed because I was trying to meet what I call in the book, these ‘gold standards’.”
Don’t miss this new episode of The Women’s Eye Podcast with Stacey Gualandi as I talk with Vanessa Loder, author of The Soul Solution: A Guide for Brilliant, Overwhelmed Women.
This former bank exec-turned-leadership expert and TEDx speaker is a friend of TWE, having first appeared on the radio show in 2015 when she shared her popular 30-day meditation challenge. Now she’s back with the solution to quiet the noise, find your superpower, and finally feel satisfied with yourself.
In The Soul Solution, Loder presents a relatable guide for the perfectionist people pleaser (like yours truly!) and offers soul tips on taming our inner critic and accepting that “we are exactly where we need to be.”
“I came up with that mantra to say to myself because we’re always trying to get somewhere, and we think, ‘When I get there, then I’ll be happy, I’ll feel good, then I’ll feel like I’m enough, and guess what? That never happens, because the bar just keeps getting higher and higher, or we get there, and we don’t even really savor it.”
Make sure to listen to Vanessa Loder talk about working with women struggling with exhaustion, burnout and the feeling they were meant for more in their lives and her advice to them on this episode of The Women’s Eye Podcast.
