Season 8: Episode 7: Avoid this dangerous group of people!

𝑨𝒗𝒐𝒊𝒅 𝒕𝒉𝒊𝒔 𝒅𝒂𝒏𝒈𝒆𝒓𝒐𝒖𝒔 𝒈𝒓𝒐𝒖𝒑 𝒐𝒇 𝒑𝒆𝒐𝒑𝒍𝒆! I have often talked about how it’s not necessary to be a people pleaser. I have talked about how it can rob you of your life, when you spend all your time and energy, running from pillar to post trying to do the bidding of others. You have no time for your own priorities because you inherently see yourself as less important than other people. Many people pleasers also pick and choose who they will “please” and who they will “recruit” to join their “people-pleasing lifestyle”. Here is a word if you are someone who has a lot of people pleasers in your life: 1. They will subtly try to make you behave like them. 2. They will rather you shut up, and go along to get along. 3. When you stand up for yourself, a people pleaser will make you feel as though you are the bad guy. 4. They may secretly resent the fact that you have agency and you use it. 5. They are NOT victims. 6. People-pleasing is a form of control. People pleasers think that they have to “make everybody happy“. You cannot try to control everyone’s emotions, because you do not want to feel uncomfortable ones. 7. If you find yourself constantly in a tug-of-war with a people pleaser, and you are not one, try your best to extricate yourself from their drama, before they take you down with them.

Season 6: Episode 6: Explaining Calculus To A Cockroach (What To Do When You Cannot Get Through)

Season 6: Episode 6: Explaining Calculus To A Cockroach (What To Do When You Cannot Get Through)

* There are people who are committed to misunderstanding you.  

* There are people who will argue with you even if you believe the same things (they are just contradictory and contrarian).  *


 There are some people who will argue with you just because it’s you.  

* Those same people when they hear from others,  they will not say  “pim” * There are some people whose worldview is vastly different from yours and you still have to co- exist with them * If logic did not get them there, logic will not get them out.  

What to do? 

* Step back 

* Remove your own emotions from the situation

 * Think about a bug, and that you are trying to teach it calculus. 

* Ask yourself: can they receive what I am giving 

* Last but not least, always remember that you can explain something to people, but you cannot understand it for them.

Season 6: Episode 3: My parents have sex?? EW!!

What happens when our “roles” in peoples lives change?     

  * Instead of trying to fit into someone else’s framework, just to keep the       peace and keep your relationship with them, it is better to be your authentic self and let the chips fall where they may.      

 * If you need to make changes necessary for your growth as a person, do it. It can be argued that anyone that doesn’t want you to grow and become better should probably be at the periphery of your life, and not at the center.     

  * Don’t remain angry when people’s attitudes toward the “New You” change. Instead of being angry and trying to force them to accept this better version of you, just re-direct your energy and emotions to the new crop of supporters that will inevitably come your way.  

    * Don’t over explain yourself. Remember, those who truly matter won’t mind and those who mind don’t really matter.      

* Make your growth a priority. That way, you will not be distracted by other people’s attitudes. 

 *Don’t condescend. Just accept that some people will be ok with the NEW YOU and some people won’t.

Season 6: Episode 1: Sharing My Story/ What To Do When You Feel Overwhelmed

Season 6: Episode 1: Sharing My Story/ What To Do When You Feel Overwhelmed

They say when the going gets tough, the tough get going. Well when life seems to have you in knots and you have more tasks and less time, here is what to do..  

1. Remember you can only do one thing at a time. Worrying about all the things you have to do is not going to get them done. 

2. Making a to do list is so that you don’t forget tasks, not something to beat yourself up with, when you “only” do 25 things out of 50.  

3. Instead of working off a “to do list”, take the things from the list in order of urgency (deadlines) and importance, and assign them spots on your calendar. 

4. Use a calendar/ schedule 

5. Delegate, hire and outsource, and don’t micromanage. 

6. Make peace with an imperfect life. 

7. Do calming activities so that you don’t feel frantic (frantic feelings make you feel like everything is worse than it is)- meditation, breathing exercises, being out in nature etc. 

8. Share your struggles with a close trusted friend.

Season 5: Episode 10: Dear Doctor

Season 5: Episode 10: Dear Doctor

Dear doctor,  

 1. Take care of your health. Don’t pretend to be a superhero. Because, the day you crumble, everything you’re holding up will crumble too.  Also because you just need to.  

 2. Burnout is common, but not necessary. You do not have to fall prey to this scourge.   

3. Develop a healthy identity that doesn’t involve you being a superman, a savior, a martyr, or a fixer.  

 4. If you suffered certain things on your path to becoming a doctor, it doesn’t mean that you get to subject Junior Doctors to the same suffering. Do better.   

5. Get the best job you possibly can.  

6. Don’t fall prey to the belief that there are no better jobs out there. Remember, there is a Physician shortage, not a patient shortage.   

7. Do something that you love every day.  


 I am Dr. Shola Ezeokoli, Physician coach. I help busy physicians defeat and prevent burnout, as well as create options for themselves outside of traditional medical practice.   Watch a free Masterclass on burnout here.  https://physicianhealyourself.life/burnout-to-balance-masterclass-optin/
