6 Steps To Dealing With Imposter Complex EP#310

Aug 4, 2019

You land your perfect job. And then your inner voice tells you that you are horribly unqualified and everyone is going to find you out.

You enter a super healthy relationship with an awesome partner. And then your inner voice tells you how damaged you are, why you aren’t good enough, and why it’s all going to come crashing down in a blazing inferno.

You finally finish that graduate degree. And then your inner voice tells you how you were the slowest in the class, probably won’t get hired, and should probably just try to get your old job back.

Sound familiar? If so, you are likely battling a lovely little issue we (in the personal growth world)  like to call The Imposter Syndrome. The idea that, in spite of your success or accomplishment, you are somehow not good enough, a total fraud, and have fooled everyone who will surely soon find you out.

In this week’s episode, I answer a listener’s buring Q about what to do when you find yourself beating yourself up about being an imposter in your career, relationship, as a parent, or whatever. You’ll learn what to do with those pesky thoughts, how to acknowledge yourself (without being a cocky asshole), and how to own your god-damned brilliance (even if that terrifies you).

This pod explores:

  • How to know if you actually are an imposter or if you’re just being a dick to yourself
  • How to zero in on what you’re really afraid of so you can get a handle on your triggers and create a much more empowering inner convo
  • Two of my favorite assignments to snap you outta this imposter trap (bring your pen and paper, Babycakes! We got work to do!)
  • The one tool you need to employ TODAY to change how you view yourself so you know, you can actually be fucking happy
