Imposter syndrome – the jerk that shows up the minute you’re about to do something great and makes you question whether you have the training, experience, or just the guts to show up and lead.
No matter where you are in your business, it always seems to be there ready to knock you down, shut you up, and tell you lies like . . .
- Who am I to tell people what to do?
- I don’t have as much experience as X.
- Why would anyone listen to me?
- It’s already been done before…and better.
But the thing is, it doesn’t matter how much you earn, what opportunities pop up, or how many years you’ve been at it – imposter syndrome is going to keep showing up at every level (because at every level we’re around by people who know more, have done more, have better results). So it’s better to get a handle and put confidence building habits in place sooner than later.
Which is why in today’s episode I’m sharing my best tips for showing up with excitement and authority even if imposter syndrome is still hanging around.
