About This Episode

Most leaders want to be successful. But, for many, success comes at a price. They might be high-performers in their careers, but the other aspects of their lives have taken a hit.

In this episode, LZ talks with Sheri Riley, a life strategist, empowerment speaker and successful author of Exponential Living, about why so many high-performing leaders struggle with this, what to do about it, and what life can look like on the other side. You can stop spending 100% of your time on 10% of who you are.

1. You still have time to do things differently.

It doesn’t matter if you’re just out of college, midway through your career, or in your 60s, you are always in control of your next step. If you’re miserable and hate your job, it’s time to step back and define who you are, then pursue a new challenge based on that new understanding of yourself.

2. “Success comes to those who don’t sleep” is a myth.

The money in your bank account, or the letters before or after your name – all of that is a narrow definition of success. It robs us of peace, joy, happiness, our marriages and relationships with kids. And we’re left not even knowing who we are. When those defining moments in our career happen, and it’s time to retire or leave a job we’ve had for years, what are we left with if we don’t know ourselves?

3. Be inspired by the AND

In other words, if you define success as “I want to be a parent, AND I want to run a successful business,” then you’re able to make decisions with your time allocation that align with those two definitions of success. Real success doesn’t require an either/or mindset. Embrace the AND and be who you were called to be in all areas of your life.
