Have you ever felt the need to fake it until you make it? Do you find you’re turning down opportunities because you tell yourself that you’re not ‘qualified’? Or maybe you’re a bit fearful to act on that dream of yours because you think you don’t have what it takes?
Welcome to what is known as ‘Imposter Syndrome.’ This is the not so wonderful land full of self doubt and insecurity – where fear takes over and you feel like a fraud for having big dreams or for doing important things.
Spoiler Alert: This limiting narrative is more common than you think – and it will hold you back from making the your unique difference in the world!
Come on the journey as I share the unexpected advice I received from my mom, how I experimented before I had a perfect plan, and how overcoming Imposter Syndrome was a necessary part of the process. If you’ve ever thought, ‘I’m just not experienced enough, old enough, or talented enough’ – this is for you, sister.
In this episode, you’ll learn:
- Why ‘failure’ is not to be feared
- How to take your own path without feeling the pressure to prove
- Why sometimes taking a pause is the best route to move forward
- How to be equipped to respond, not just react
Get ready to change your mindset from ‘Am I out of my league?’ to ‘I can’t wait to knock this out of the park.’ Because the door to your destiny may just be on the other side of that untruthful Imposter Syndrome.
