How to Overcome Imposter Syndrome

How to Overcome Impostor Syndrome by Dominique Wilson

It’s funny how the idea of sales makes us nervous, but we've got no problem sweet-talking ourselves out of a blessing...

The moment I decided to step into my power, and purchase that 1-way ticket to NYC…

I immediately noticed limiting thoughts beginning to surface…

As if they didn’t exist until I was ready to click ‘submit.’

“What if something bad happens and I'm alone?”

“What if I can’t find a decent apartment?”

“What if it takes forever to get established so I can start my business?”

...Wow! Now, it was becoming clear why it took me so long to even make the decision to leave an unhealthy relationship,

AND,

I knew why after all those years of dreaming, planning, learning, preparing...I still hadn’t started my business.

Impostor syndrome.

I thought that since I didn't have it all together, reaching out to help others (despite years of wisdom, education, and experience) made me a fraud.

I had so many unchecked fears and false beliefs about my potential, that I had literally created a lifestyle that allowed no space for me to just be myself!

So, in December of 2012, I said NO MORE!

I realized how everything I touch either flourishes or falls away to move me further in the direction of my purpose—that is the power of Woman.

That's when the name and mission of my business was revealed to me—Everything She Touches.

After that revelation, NOTHING was going to stop me from getting on that plane—not finances, the job market, the environment, the economy, being rejected, nothing!

In spite of the fear, the doubt, and the limiting beliefs,

I was on fire with a renewed sense of purpose, and finally saying YES to my calling!

We have the power to set ourselves free,

AND,

I believe that as spiritual entrepreneurs we also have a responsibility to answer our calling,

Because deep down, we know our purpose is bigger than us.

You are here to use our gifts to heal, teach, inspire, empower, uplift, encourage, build, transform...to add value to humanity.

What you know is valuable and someone out there is waiting to hear about it so that they can have a breakthough.

The media wants you to buy into the idea that you're not ready, that you need permission, that your world is limited, that your voice isn’t powerful enough, and that we stand divided...

BUT you and I know better.

That’s why we do this work.

To wake people up so they can know the truth about their potential too.

Yes, life happens sometimes, and you may not feel like creating that post, contacting that client, showing up at that event, turning on that camera to go live in front of your tribe...

BUT,

That doesn't make you an impostor—it means that you are human. No one is happy and on their A-game 100% of the time because it's unnatural.

Balance is the natural state of the universe—ups and downs, highs and low, creation and destruction...etc. So when you strive be happy all the time, you'll only end up judging yourself.

Your ideal clients want to see and know the real you. The YOU that feels, that struggles, that has fun, that succeeds, and fails from time to time.

So, if you're going through a challenge, just remember that nothing is permanent.

Simply acknowledge that maybe you need a minute to re-center, refocus, and recommit to your purpose...

Have compassion, but don’t stay there longer than you need to.

So, get back up. Be Proactive. Your purpose is calling..

You’re in the driver's seat at ALL times.

You get to set a new course, make a new plan, think a new thought, and take a new action at any time.

Give yourself permission to make adjustments in your life as YOU see fit, and don’t apologize!
