Who am I to speak on this stage at this level? Who am I to have a translator and to have their hair and makeup done and flown my husband and daughter down to Brazil?
Impostor Syndrome: is a psychological pattern in which an individual doubts their accomplishments and has a persistent internalized fear of being exposed as a “fraud.”
3 Ways To Overcome Self-Doubt and Boost Your Confidence
My coach told me that it never goes away. As soon as you hit one level, there’s another level that you need to break through and scarier things, and she was so right.
If I could do that, I can do anything. Give me any stage; I’ll nail it.
It’s also how I feel about childbirth, I had a lot of self-doubt about the labor process and going into it I really wanted a natural childbirth for both of my daughters. Even with personal things like childbirth the same steps apply. I’ll talk more about childbirth at the end of this podcast, in case you could care less.

Affirmations. Read them morning and night. Next episode I’m going to do an entire episode about this. So I’m not going to go into detail on how to create them I’m just going to tell you to do them today. Saying positive things to yourself every single morning and night. It removes that self-doubt from your mind. You can do this. You visualize your success. I am sitting in a coffee shop in Paris working with my husband. I am a happy working mom.
If you know your vision, you repeat that those visions are coming true and you say positive things to yourself. I am 100% committed to being the person I need to be. I will become the successful person that I know I can be.
Shut Out the Noise
There’s so much distraction these days online. Getting rid of the noise is so important. Unsubscribe, unfollow, and delete those people that make you feel jealous or not good enough. Unfollow the people you feel competitive or like you will never be good enough to be like. Keep following the people who are positive and make you feel inspired. Get rid of every distraction that is giving you self-doubt.
I used to follow a lady I never felt good enough for. She actually instilled self-doubt in me. I told her that my husband had quit his job and was working for me and she said how’s that working for you and laughed. I had to unfollow her everywhere because it really brought me down and was someone I admired. The same thing happened with another coach I spoke with, and he asked me how many members I wanted to help launch their dream careers and businesses by the end of the year and when I told him he said I should lower my number.
Don’t Do It Alone
Mastermind group. Accountability partner. Coach. Friend. Tell someone your dreams. I remember three years ago telling my mastermind group I wanted to create physical products and the fact that they believed me really helped me believe that I could do this and it was possible. One of my mentors Stu McLaren has also been really encouraging. I can’t wait to tell him how our membership sites are doing because he is constantly cheering me on. He’s featured our story as a success story so it makes me strive for more success because I know he’s cheering me on from afar.
As far as childbirth goes, I followed these same three tips. I kept positive and only read encouraging stories about natural labor and tried not to listen to people’s negative experiences which I knew so much of. I shut out the noise and got into a group of other women who wanted natural childbirths.
