In our fast paced and demanding world where the ability to pivot and transition every day is a necessity, how do we move past what Psychologists call "Impostor Syndrome" to conquer the deeper fears of not being enough?
Impostor Syndrome is a concept that describes individuals who are marked by an inability to realize their accomplishments and have a persistent fear of being exposed as a "fraud." This way of thinking causes us to dismiss our accomplishments and abilities, feeling they may have occurred from luck, circumstance, or having deceived others into thinking we're someone other than our true selves.
To some extent, everyone is ingrained with this mental noise that can tell us we're not good enough or don't belong. Our mind often wonders what may happen if people find out we're not as intelligent as they think. These thoughts can be the loudest when pursuing a goal or passion, and the fear of exposing ourselves as a failure can limit exploration and destroy the courage needed to delve into new experiences.
To overcome these limiting and destructive thought processes, it's necessary to ask ourselves an important question:
How can we move past Impostor Syndrome to develop our power, awareness, and take action in the direction of our true desires?
On this episode of Wellness Force Radio, we explore this topic and much more with Ella Lucas-Averett, Host of the "On Air With Ella" Podcast. During this interview, she discusses techniques to move past our fears and find greater alignment in our lives.
