Let’s dig a little deeper today – imposter syndrome and the importance of small deaths. You know, the light stuff life is made of. Sometimes imposter syndrome shows up as that voice that says, “Who do you think you are?”
Or “Why do you think you are the right person for this?”
Sometimes it is condescending, “Stay in your lane, honey. Let the real writers/podcasters/creators do this.”
Susan explores the idea that imposter syndrome is feeding some fear that is keeping her stuck. Let’s shine a spotlight onto these imposter syndrome feelings – it might show us that this monster behind the curtain is really a tiny, shriveled nothing just trying to act tough.
Here is what you can expect in this episode:
- How fear is connected to imposter syndrome.
- Leveraging a corporate America problem solving strategy for a creative problem.
- Pep talks from an 18th century poet, an ancient Roman philosopher, and a modern day women’s basketball coach.
