If the image resonates with you the likelihood is you are suffering from imposter syndrome.
The great news is you can escape this confidence-sapping syndrome.
According to some estimates, up to 70% of successful people experience imposter syndrome including Maya Angelou, Albert Einstein, and Meryl Streep.
Unlike other forms of anxiety that sap confidence, the syndrome’s horrible nature means that external success heightens rather than soothes the effects, as sufferers believe they are only ramping up the trick they are playing on everyone.
I am well acquainted with the dreaded imposter syndrome. The constant self-criticism even when I do something well, my tendency to laugh away success, and the constant daily fear of being exposed.
Fellow sufferers tend to overwork, people please and can experience toxic stress and depression.
Rather than pushing our anxieties to the back of the emotional inbox and soldier on, I invite us all to lean in. Doing this and understanding and accepting that I am a sufferer, finding ways to turn this imposter into a positive has absolutely changed my career and my life and I want to help you do the same.
If you spot the symptoms then you have a great opportunity to develop self-awareness, generate pragmatic empathy, and integrate practices that will support you to live a more fulfilled life.
In this webinar, we will explore some of the ways we can embrace the imposter to make us a better, more rounded, more fulfilled person rather than pushing it away or even worse hiding from it.
