EP.146: Trying Too Hard

Business, Emotional Mindset, Podcast

When it comes to success, what comes to mind for you? Do you think it’s way too hard, that it’ll take up too much of your time, or that it’s not even something that’s necessary?


While everyone has their own unique definition of success, for those who are working towards it, the path can oftentimes feel very hard…like you’re climbing uphill without any safety gear. But could it just be that you’re trying too hard?


On this week’s episode of the Make More Money as a Dietitian Podcast, Christine shares why trying too hard to achieve your goals can sometimes set you back. There’s a better way to achieve your personal and professional goals that’s more sustainable in the long run.



  • Why trying too hard can backfire. 
  • How letting go of control can lighten the load.
  • The importance of “acting the part” as the CEO of your nutrition business.
  • How trusting the process and releasing attachment to specific outcomes can work in your favor.
