Imposter Syndrome is the feeling that you are doing something you shouldn't be doing. You may feel that you're not well educated or that you’re not good enough in your industry or your field, and that you're just kind of winging it. However, more often than not, these are not true and you’re actually just as qualified as anyone else to do what you’re doing.
In today’s episode, we talk about why we have these thoughts, what we can do to overcome them, and how to move forward.
“I realized being able to quiet our minds, being able to push the junk out of the way is so beneficial for us to then uncover what it is we know to be true, what it is we actually want.” ~ @avanimiriyala
Meditation is a container for the things that are clouding our thoughts to dissipate. You can’t just meditate one time, you need to practice and stay with it for it to work effectively.
Start making a list or thinking of events or pieces of evidence that prove to yourself that you are not an imposter and that you are actually an expert at what you do. Build a case for your greatness and your premium services.
Journaling helps us get to the bottom of why we feel what we’re feeling. Writing is a powerful tool that allows you to ask deep, tough questions and get the answers you are looking for.
Everyone has imposter syndrome. We’re all just a bunch of human imposters trying to survive. Having conversations helps you understand that you’re not in this alone and you’re having a regular human experience.
