Key Takeaways:

Jamie Gantt experienced burnout and depression at the peak of her corporate career, which led her on a journey of self-discovery to find happiness and fulfillment. She discovered the power of self-care and now wants to help others avoid the same mistakes.

Many people just follow the “life script” they are handed by society without thinking about what will truly make them happy. Jamie helps people uncover their core values and create an action plan aligned with those values.

Self-care and knowing your authentic self is crucial. Women in particular tend to put themselves last and get burnt out. Jamie focuses on values-based self-care and goal setting.

Going through the motions in a career or relationship that isn’t right for you leads to a “gilded cage.” Even when you have money and status, you can still feel empty inside.

It’s important to have radical acceptance – fully accepting your situation mentally and emotionally, even if you want to change it. Then you can move forward in a positive way.

You can reinvent yourself and switch careers at any age. It’s never too late to find your passion and purpose. When you align your life around those, other things tend to fall into place.

Don’t worry about keeping up with the Joneses or seek validation from others. Focus inward on what fulfills you rather than external things like job titles and possessions.

Living radically means getting to the core of what you truly want, rather than chasing after societal expectations and external markers of success.

Many people are crystal clear on what they don’t want, but they struggle to identify what they truly want in life.

Self-care is essential for avoiding burnout and finding true happiness and success.

Radical acceptance involves accepting the facts of a situation and the associated emotions without trying to change them.

It’s never too late to make a career change or pursue your passions.
