Imposter Syndrome, let’s start with a good old Google definition.
The persistent inability to believe that one’s success is deserved or has been legitimately achieved as a result of one’s own efforts or skills.
Friends, listen up.
It does not matter what you do to create value in this world: full time (part time) moms, entrepreneurs, corporate partner, CEO, baristas, bank manager, doctor, nurse, police officer, fire fighter, teacher, professor, artist, yoga instructor, athlete, keynote speakers; anyone can experience imposter syndrome.
Let me share a story with you and get super vulnerable, again.
I launched On Track Training, which morphed into Team On Track, a highly successful coaching and sporting event promotion business, thirty years ago. Before people even knew what personal training was.
I spent most of those thirty years embarrassed of what I did. I told the story of how I was so much smarter than that. How went to school for Chemical Engineering then went into the School of Journalism and got a Graphic Design certificate, worked as a Graphic Designer before stepping into this role as an expert at transforming people’s lives. I was smart.
I still totally thought I was a fraud.
After all of the work I have done these past two years I shake my head at all of this because I know how much of a lie it was.
I share that with you because those of you who know me from that business would never even guess that I felt this way.
Of course you wouldn’t, I had the outer facade game down!
I knew how to play the role of looking like I knew what I was doing.
Of course, now I know that I knew what I was doing, I knew well, I just didn’t have the self confidence needed to believe it.
In a nutshell imposter syndrome comes from us thinking that we’re just not enough, that soon someone is going to figure it out and call us out on it.
Probably even fire us, put us out on the street, unemployed, ruined and broke
It’s ok because there is a solution.
Once you build up your self worth.
Once you build up your self confidence.
Once you learn how to start loving yourself.
Once you start being willing to let people be wrong about you.
Once you stop rejecting yourself.
Once you become unwilling to reject yourself because of others who may reject you.
Once you step on this journey to discovering the true you and start stepping fully into that, the imposter syndrome slowly fades away into the distance.
Oh, your brain will want to remind you that you’re not good enough but you can’t blame it. You’ve spent your whole life conditioning it to believe this lie. No fear though, once you’ve done this work you will recognize the lie.
You will know how to love your brain for reminding you and then gently be able to tell it that it is wrong.
That you are no longer that person.
You are no longer going to allow yourself to listen to that lie.
The other thing I will tell you, you can put this all into The Thought Model, that the thought that you are an imposter is just that.
Not a circumstance.
When you think that you’re an imposter it will generate a feeling of something like incompetence which is going to make you show up less than you truly are capable of showing up giving you the result of acting like an imposter.
It’s way better to just believe that you are completely qualified for what you are doing and feel confident. This will make you show up knocking it out of the park which creates the result of doing quality work.
