Do you ever feel like something isn’t possible for you? Do you find that you don’t believe it when other people compliment you or tell you something about yourself because you feel like an imposter?
Imposter Syndrome is the inability to believe that your success is deserved or has been legitimately achieved as a result of your own efforts or skills. It can be debilitating and is something we all experience at some point.
We put such high expectations on ourselves that it’s no wonder we find ourselves drowning in imposter syndrome. But there are ways to move through it, and knowing that you are not alone can help.
My invitation for you this week is to consider how the world is perceiving you versus what you are believing about yourself. Put a lens on and see things you haven’t been able to see before. It is possible to do the mental and emotional work to realize what you’ve accomplished, become a compassionate observer, and let go of your imposter syndrome.
In this episode, Laura and I share our own experiences of imposter syndrome and how we have learned to manage our mindsets around it. Discover some ways that imposter syndrome can serve you, and how to change your mindset to get beyond it and believe in your own abilities.
