Imposter Syndrome: What To Do When You Feel Like a Fraud

So, I’ve been getting a lot of requests to do a video on imposter syndrome, so that is what I’m going to do today. So if you have ever felt like you are not qualified or not good enough to do the job or to do something scary, maybe you’re a little uncomfortable and you feel like, who am I to actually do that job? No one is going to think I’m smart enough. No one is going to think I’m good enough. Who am I?  

If this sounds familiar, then you may have had imposter syndrome.

We’ve all had it. I’m going to tell you when I had it years ago, back in 2014 when I got invited for my first international speaking event in Brazil. I was scared out of my mind and I was talking to one of my coaches at the time and I said, I do not believe I’m qualified for this.

Like who am I to be flown to Brazil to be wined and dined? They’re going to do my hair and do my makeup, and I’m going to speak to thousands of women. They’re going to know I’m an imposter and they’re going to know I’m a fake. They’re going to know. They’re going to be able to tell. I will never forget what my coach told me.

She told me that you will always have that in the back of your head. You will always have imposter syndrome. You’ll always feel like you’re not good enough. It’s never going to go away. You just have to march on and get through it. And I did a couple of weeks later, I flew to Brazil with my family, got onstage, delivered that presentation, and it was an incredible experience. They didn’t think I was an imposter.

Even though I was so nervous and had those negative thoughts, I got up there, I did it. And it was a huge experience for me. So what I also want to tell you is if you can push past feeling like an imposter, and get over that hump and that fear and feeling like a fake, the feeling afterward is incredible.

Pushing Past Imposter Syndrome

The feeling afterward will motivate you and push you to your next uncomfortable level. I will tell you from my experience in Brazil that it completely launched our business because I developed so much more confidence from getting over that really, really scary thing I didn’t think I was qualified for.

I was able to leap past and then everything just changed after that. I just knew if I could speak on stage to thousands of women in Brazil, they were all wearing headphones, they couldn’t even understand me, it had to be translated in their language. If I can do that, what else can I do? I can do anything. Right? It really builds your confidence.

That is what I want to motivate you and inspire you to do today. If there’s something you feel like you’re not qualified for, you’re not good enough to do, just try to do it. Go for it, because you will experience such an amazing feeling afterward and then you will be unstoppable. 

If  I Can Do It, So Can You

I hope my story will inspire you. So go out there, do big things. If you’ve ever felt like a fake, if you’ve ever felt like you’re not qualified for something, if you’ve had any experiences with imposter syndrome, I’d love for you to share how you got past it below. Your comments will inspire and motivate others!
