3 Ways to Overcome Impostor SyndromeJun 03, 2022
Do you struggle with “Impostor Syndrome”???
Here’s the Wikipedia definition of impostor syndrome:
“Impostor syndrome (also known as impostor phenomenon or impostorism) is a psychological occurrence in which an individual doubts their skills, talents, or accomplishments and has a persistent internalized fear of being exposed as a fraud. Despite external evidence of their competence, those experiencing this phenomenon do not believe they deserve their success or luck.”
…. What stands out to me
“Despite external evidence of their competence”
That really hits home.
Even if you have the track record to back up your content, still oftentimes we can fall into the trap of feeling like an impostor or a fraud.
If you struggle with this too, here are my:
“3 Ways to Overcome Impostor Syndrome”
#1. STOP comparing yourself to people that are 10 years ahead of you. Looking at a multi million $$$ business owner on social media and beating yourself up that you arent on their “level” won’t do you any good. I have found it leads to more impostor syndrome and feeling like a failure that you aren’t on their level yet. Stay in your own lane. Focus on you and what you can do to get to the next step of where YOU are at! You are right where you need to be!
#2. Get RESULTS for yourself or a client. The easiest way to overcome impostor syndrome and feeling like you aren’t worthy, is reminding yourself that you’ve already come so far! Never forget that!
#3 Share your RESULTS in your content! The easiest way to not feel like an “Impostor” is to just share things that are working for you or your clients/customers. You can’t be a fraud when you are actually talking about real life success stories and transformations! This makes content so much more fun and you’ll never feel like an impostor again!
…. If you struggle with this too, I hope the 3 strategies I just shared help add some energy to your life and some confidence to take "Impostor Syndrome" head on!
