Today’s life lesson is realising that you know more that you thought you did.
Most every day I’m racked with self-doubt, imposter syndrome and have little or no self confidence, this is especially true in my paid job, I know consciously that if I wasn’t able to do it I won’t have been offer the role but deep down in my belly I worry that I’m going to get “found out”.
But for a short period today, I did know what I was talking about and my words in the lecture just flowed naturally without much thought and it felt so empowering. It doesn’t happen how much others tell you that you are good at what you do or have amazing knowledge you need to believe it yourself and this is something I struggle with and I’m sure I’ve mentioned this several times before (broken record again!), however, I feel like there are glimmers of hope that this mindset cycle can be broken.
I bought a book the other day called The High 5 Habit – and it’s all about high 5-ing yourself and being your own cheerleader, this is something I’ve talked about in my other blog but I’m yet to master this habit of cheering myself on. In all the self-help books I read they all talk about finding the inner confidence and not relying on others to give you that boost, work in progress this is!! Will be a long and interesting journey, one I’m willing to take if it means me transforming my life.
