Overcoming Imposter Syndrome: Feeling Like you Don’t Know Enough to get Respect or Real Results EP219
Seven out of ten people feel imposter syndrome at least once in their lives. The feeling of being a fraud or being “found out,” is something I struggled with most of my life, up until about four years ago. I never felt like I was all that book smart, as I had to study so much longer than anyone I knew to even squeeze out an A-, unless of course it was a broadcasting or public speaking class. Deep down, I knew it was my hustle, determination, and grit that created my success…certainly not my intelligence. Since I held onto this insecurity of not being some Ivy school grad or even being able to do math in my head, I felt like, “if they only knew the truth, they would fire me.” Since our beliefs create our reality, I would shy away from people, clients, colleagues, and opportunities, where I may be “found out.” This only compounded my already low self-worth and self-doubt. I wasn’t able to shift out of this distorted thinking until I started diligently doing the inner work to learn how to even like, then love, and appreciate my self. The root of feeling like you don’t belong or aren’t valuable enough all stems from low self-worth. Until that healing begins, you will never be able to escape imposter syndrome, you will never feel like you’re enough. The reality is that you are already more than enough just as you are today, whether you have the degrees or not, whether you can do math in your head or not, whether you have abs or not, whether you are 25 or 55, you were created exactly as you are for a special reason.
