In this episode, I'm talking all about Imposter Syndrome.  Many entrepreneurs experience the unwanted emotion lurking, just waiting to rise to the surface to override our hard work. It’s an ugly feeling that impacts the best of us from time to time. If you allow it, this unwelcome emotion can completely derail your mental and emotional strength, bringing your business to a paralyzing halt (Trust me, I've experienced it one too many times).

So, you’ve done well for yourself. Taking a quick glance at your experience and looking at that long list of accomplishments. All signs point towards success. You look good on paper.

Now, wait.

Accomplished. A proven authority. However, there’s this tightness in the chest that hints at an entirely different conclusion. It even causes you to start questioning yourself because you're worried that others will think you are a fraud.

Are you sitting there listening to this silently, nodding your head in agreement? I know right?!

The term Imposter Syndrome was coined and introduced to the world in 1978 by Dr. Pauline R. Clance and Dr. Suzanne A. Imes. This term means a psychological pattern in which individual doubts their accomplishments and has a persistent internalized fear of being exposed as a "fraud".
