Do you know that little voice in your head that tends to tell you that you aren't good enough? The feeling where you are constantly second-guessing yourself and not giving yourself the love and respect you deserve? Today we are diving into the topic of imposter syndrome. Where it comes from, how we are our own biggest critic, and how we can overcome it.
If you take nothing else from this post, KNOW that YOU ARE a good enough wife, friend, girlfriend, entrepreneur, athlete, employee. You are doing the best you can on your timeline.
Overcoming imposter syndrome is an active practice where you have to work on self-love, confidence, discipline, and sacrifice.
Here are a few examples of the people/situations we tend to compare ourselves to:
It took someone 10 years to become “an overnight success”
When you’re thinking about the perfect housewife it’s because they watched how to be that growing up
It took a lot of heartbreak and shitty relationships to find that “perfect” one + relationship
It took athletes workouts, practices, tryouts, traveling, lifting, sacrifice to be the ‘best”
So, where does imposter syndrome look like?
Thinking we aren’t enough
That we are not experts
That someone else has already done what we are working towards
That someone else will do it better
How does it affect us?
Not being able to show up genuinely
You stop feeling creative
You give up
How to move through imposter syndrome to reach your full potential:
You have to just start
Even when it's hard you gotta do it - you can do hard things and you have to do it the best you can
You have to quit comparing yourself to others in your industry
You have to understand that it's okay to fail
In conclusion, we want you to know that the world needs to hear your voice! In today's world, ideas aren’t new but the way you show up in unique and 100% needed! Remember, you can sit here - there's enough room for all of us!
