“It’s not what you are that holds you back, it’s what you think you are not.” – Denis Waitley
Sometimes we can feel like our dreams are meant for someone else. When things are going well, we can find ourselves looking at our incredible partner or our blossoming career and wonder “Am I worthy of this life?”
When you’re feeling like an imposter, it’s probably because you’re experiencing an uplevelling or growth period in your life. Imposter syndrome is most common among the highest achievers in our society, so if you’ve been experiencing it, you’re in good company.
In this episode of The Elevated Life®, we’re sharing 3 tips to help you see your true worth and overcome imposter syndrome.
In this video we talk about:
The importance of separating yourself from your thoughts
How to avoid letting imposter syndrome keep you from showing up as your authentic self
How we overcame the awkwardness of showing up live on video
Why it’s important to remember that your gifts and talents are so much bigger than just you
In order to overcome imposter syndrome, you need to become aware of your inner dialogue. Often in life, we feel that we are our thoughts. By becoming aware of the things we’re saying to ourselves, we can put space between actual reality and the made up world in our mind.
Imposter syndrome creeps in most often when we are going through a change, so the negative thoughts in your head might just be resistance to all the transformation.
It’s easy to focus on a tiny negative thing until it turns into a shadow that blocks out all of your shining accomplishments. That’s why we encourage you to make a list of all of the things you’ve done that you are so fucking proud of.
In the beginning of my entrepreneurial journey, when I was feeling down, I’d go read the reviews of my hair salon. It was such a helpful reminder and an instant boost of positivity!
Imposter syndrome really boils down to the fear of rejection, and that’s why it shows up when you are offering your gifts or services to the world.
When we first started showing up live on video, it felt really strange. The more we focused on the people we were reaching and the impact we were having on their lives, the easier it became to show up.
Tune in and let us know in the comments below which tips you’re going to put into practice.
Are you someone who feels everything (especially the emotions and feelings of others)?
It’s a gift, not a curse.
Empaths are some of the most compassionate people. They are the first to lend a hand, be someone to lean on, and help someone in need. They’re our nurses, teachers, and caregivers.
But they also get taken advantage of, preyed upon, and used by people abusing their good nature.
It’s not enough to just sit back and take everything the world throws your way. You’ll burn out and eventually resent the work you were put here to do.
That’s why we’re so excited to arm you with our strategies for reclaiming your power, standing up for yourself, and taking charge of your mental and emotional health.
