You’re a fraud...
You don’t know what you’re doing...
Why would anyone listen to you??
There are all the things we often hear in the back of our minds when we are taking on a new venture.
It's the reason you see so many people “failing” (aka giving up) and 99% of the time it’s because they lack belief in themselves and their abilities.
- Am I enough
- Who am I to be helping people?
- That’s it! I give up… someone’s going to figure out I’ve been a fraud this whole time
This is a very real dilemma for the majority of entrepreneurs and so many people with AMAZING ideas that they never pursue.
And when you start achieving small success (FINALLY!), you just can’t stay consistent.
So, how do you overcome self-doubt and unproductivity?
How can you write content that actually converts?
Imposter syndrome is REAL y’all.
What is it?
Well, It’s basically when you feel like you’re being a fraud and you have a fear of being exposed at that.
Don’t get me wrong. There are lots of imposters out there... but you are NOT an imposter for becoming someone different.
You are not an imposter for changing and evolving who you are!
Even when people see you doing something different than what they thought you would be doing and make comments on it, it’s not because you’re an imposter or a fraud. Don’t doubt your accomplishments because of the voice in the back your head telling you that that’s not who you are. You can be anyone you want to be and DO anything you want to DO!
As someone who’s bigger critic is themselves (second to my mother) I know it can feel so daunting trying on new hats and striving to follow your dreams.
To that voice in the back of your head, tell it to shut up!
Stay strong in your greatness and believe in yourself. There’s nothing wrong with second-guessing yourself and double-checking that what you’re doing is authentic to yourself. But, never let that voice in the back your head hold you back from everything you want to DO!
I know from the outside, it can look like everyone on social media and TV have it all together. But the truth is, I’ve been struggling with (procrastination/imposter syndrome/fear of the unknown/fear failure/fear of overwhelm/ etc).
Is Imposter Syndrome something you struggle with as well? Let's get on a call and chat about it... maybe I can help (or just listen)!
