Fake, Fraud, Imposter?

You are smart, capable and successful, yet deep down, you are terrified that at any time, you will be exposed as a fraud, a fake.

I just described imposter syndrome, a feeling in which accomplished women discredit their achievements and victories and believe that one day they will be found out.

Some signs of impostor syndrome include:

🌸 Crediting luck or timing as reasons for your success.

🌸 You are afraid of being seen as imperfect or a failure.

🌸 You believe that the only way to meet expectations is by overworking.

🌸 You don’t believe you are worthy of attention or affection.

🌸 You downplay your accomplishments.

🌸 You tend to procrastinate and hold back from reaching attainable goals.

Some steps to consider to overcome your imposter syndrome….

🌸 Realize that you are not alone in believing that you are a fraud. Indeed, it is estimated that 70% of individuals worldwide have experienced imposter syndrome at some point in their lives.

🌸 Acknowledge your potential and own your achievements both mentally and emotionally.

🌸 Identify and respect your feelings and fears and then put them to the side. Write out all of your achievements and success to date.

🌸 Stop comparing yourself to others by holding your achievements up against theirs; instead, focus on measuring your successes.

🌸 Hire a qualified life coach, like myself who can assist you with turning your thoughts, feelings and behaviour away from believing that you are a fake by supporting you with owning your authenticity and building your future on your actual strengths, accomplishments and successes. 🦋

Don’t Give Up!

Instead of giving up …

✅ Recommit to your goal. Feel the wonderfulness of having what you want. Feel the magic of having ‘it’ deep in your bones.

✅ Learn from what’s not working or the mistakes you’ve made.

✅ Celebrate your wins so far.

✅ Tweak your approach.

✅ Remind yourself that every attempt at anything new is at first an experiment and the chances of it not working out right away is usually 100%.

✅ All successful people fail into success, 100% of the time.

✅ Failing is part of the process of succeeding and you’ve got to love failing to succeed.

✅ Take a break and refresh your mind, body, heart and soul and then get back to it.

✅ Reach out to someone that can encourage or help you to take the next step towards your goal.

What do you do when you feel like giving up?

We Cannot Fail …

There is no such thing as failure! There are outcomes, results or feedback. As long as we are learning, gaining knowledge, expanding our perspective and moving forward we are succeeding. 

Coulda, Woulda, Shoulda …

LS3D-WCS (2)

‘Coulda, Woulda, Shoulda’ … three of the saddest words uttered throughout the ages … 3 words that cause our greatest grief and anxiety … they are the socially unacceptable words of regret … the misgivings we have shoved down … the remorse we pretend doesn’t exist … we all have them … moments when we cautiously withdrew from someone or something because we were afraid of being rejected, of failing, looking foolish … they are the life defining moments we defensively, justifiably, self-righteously took a detour from and headed into a new direction … believing we are ‘now’ safe … yet as we journey on our new path we quietly carry our invisible baggage of shame, guilt and self-loathing, mumbling I ‘Coulda, Woulda, Shoulda’…

A recent survey by Allianz Life Insurance Company of North America found that roughly one-third (32%) of Americans regret major choices in their lives.

Happy Newsflash … it’s never late to dump our baggage … to embrace our innocence … our vulnerabilities … to acknowledge that we did our best with what we knew at the time … to exercise our courage …. to step up and smash our ‘Coulda, Woulda, Shoulda’… to either do the ‘ it’ … or … to forgive ourselves … for our past misguided decisions … at this juncture we can’t fool ourselves … we know what to do for ‘done’ to pop.

LIVING SUCCESS 3D--10

What inner obstacle(s) do you need to overcome, to grow your success?

~ Judit e. Szabo

Eternal Justice …

LIVING SUCCESS 3D--DISCIPLINE

You will never have a greater or lesser dominion than that over yourself …

The height of a man’s success is gauged by his self-mastery; the depth of his failure by his self-abandonment …

And this law is the expression of eternal justice.

He who cannot establish dominion over himself will have no dominion over others.

~ Leonardo da Vinci

With All Your Heart …

LIVING SUCCESS 3D--HEART

Do the things that interest you and do them with all your heart.

Don’t be concerned about whether people are watching you or criticizing you.

The chances are that they aren’t paying any attention to you.

It’s your attention to yourself that is so stultifying.

But you have to disregard yourself as completely as possible.

If you fail the first time then you’ll just have to try harder the second time.

After all, there’s no real reason why you should fail.

Just stop thinking about yourself.

Adversity, Failure, Heartache …

Every adversity, every failure, every heartache carries with it the seed of an equal or greater benefit.

~ Napoleon Hill
