Show Notes:

If you’ve ever walked into a meeting, or a networking event, or even a neighbour’s BBQ and felt the belly churning dread that at some point everyone here is going to find out who you really are, this episode is just for you. We are talking about the secrets and lies of feeling like an imposter. This is one of the more insidious aspects of self-doubt – this sense that underneath everything you are a fraud and you are just waiting to be found out. In this episode, we talk about where this concept first arose, the misconceptions of it, and I share a process you can apply straight away to begin to shift your approach to feeling like an imposter.

Topics discussed:

  • The original research about the Imposter Complex.
  • The built-in paradox of feeling like an Imposter that keeps us silent.
  • Why being reassured doesn’t help.
  • How the media have skewed studies into feeling like an imposter.
  • Why success makes no difference!
  • A process to begin to shift your approach to feeling like an imposter.
