When embarking on a career change, most physicians naturally start by looking outward: What role fits me best? Where should I apply? However, if you don’t take the time to look inward and develop a good relationship with yourself, these outward steps may not yield the results you are hoping for. Today’s guest, Dr. Cindy Tsai, is an internal medicine physician, coach, and author, who will discuss the importance of your relationship with yourself and strategies for coping and reframing your perspective when this relationship becomes compromised.
In this episode we’re talking about:
- How Dr. Tsai’s childhood experiences influenced her relationship with herself
- The diagnosis that led Cindy to reconsider her priorities
- Techniques to reframe imposter syndrome
- How to deal with perfectionism that has become dysfunctional
- Why chronic people pleasing can lead to a negative relationship with yourself
- How viewing yourself as a victim can lead to feeling stuck
- Dr. Tsai’s book, So Much Better: Life-Changing Strategies to Develop Calm, Confidence & Curiosity to Become Your Own Inspiring Success Story
