17: 7: We’re More than What we Do for a Living with Dr. Kara Pepper

As humans, we are multifaceted, and a lot of times the best things in our lives happen when we don't concede to the herd mentality. As a matter of fact, the reward for conformity is that everyone will like you but yourself. 

In today's episode, Kathleen is joined by Dr. Kara Pepper, a Practicing Telemedicine Internist and certified life coach for exhausted perfectionists. Kara has a thoughtful, dynamic, and honest story that will make you feel more human, connected, and just more normal, even in those times when you're at your epic burnout. 

Tune in as Kathleen and Dr. Pepper share about:

  • Kara's undying love for ballet dancing and the trauma she experienced leaving this passion behind 
  • How overwork, endless charting, and self-criticism led to her epic burnout 
  • The fear of being divergent (not conforming to the herd mentality)
  • A taste of what it has been like to have fun practicing  medicine  
  • Detaching from the fabricated relief in substance habits
  • The importance of understanding your why
  • How you could practice medicine in a unique and happy way

… and so much more!

Life is too short to be unhappy at work.

But fear shows up and stops you from even allowing yourself to make a change.

Fear of disappointment. “I’ll apply for the dream job and I won’t get it”

Fear of failure. “There’s so much on the line” and “I’ll get overwhelmed and won’t be able to do it”.

That’s when your brain gives you all the reasons why you can’t even consider what your dream job and life could look like.

Manage Your Fear will show you how to move past your fear so you can actually get started on exploring the possibilities available to you.
