In case you missed my blog post “5 Ways to Cure Imposter Syndrome in Life and Business,” here’s the link to the podcast edition!
Imposter syndrome, it can be a silent killer, with hidden symptoms that are often hard to uncover.
The good news is, it’s completely treatable and you can have a happy, healthy life and business even if you never totally get rid of it.
What is Imposter Syndrome?
Even if you’ve never heard of it, if you have unfulfilled dreams, and you sometimes feel stuck and uncertain as to why you can't make it happen for you, chances are one of the things that’s holding you back is imposter syndrome.
It’s a little but powerful voice in your head that says, “Who are you to think you can do that?” It creeps in quite often when we’re about to do things out of our comfort zone, things that open us to judgment, things that put our greatness on display.
And just when we convince ourselves, “I can do it!” a wave of resistance comes crashing down upon us, threatening that “if you dare take that chance, everyone’s going to see that you’re a complete fraud and have no idea what you’re doing or saying.” It keeps people from starting businesses, it keeps struggling businesses from bursting through to success, it even keeps moms from making confident parenting decisions based on gut instincts.
If any of these situations describes you, you likely have at least a mild case of imposter syndrome:
If you want to start a business, but you haven’t, for “reasons.” If you have a business but can’t get consistent profits.
If you’re a mom and not sure you can juggle a business and properly raising your kids.
