What if you are better than you think you are?

I was scheduled to speak at the UK Hypnosis Convention November 2020. I've been especially excited about this event for a couple of reasons.
- I LOVE the UK! It feels like a second home to me.
- My talk was about, "Slaying the Impostor Monster"
Sadly, the Convention was put on hold until next year, but my passion for helping people move forward in their business has only grown stronger the past few weeks.
Wikipedia describes impostor syndrome as: a psychological pattern in which one doubts one's accomplishments and has a persistent internalized fear of being exposed as a "fraud".
For the past few years I've noticed that this Impostor Monster loves to dig it's talons into people who want to make a difference in the world by helping others.
The Impostor Monster says things like...
I just need a few more certifications before I'm ready to start seeing clients.
I need to do more self-work first. (Translation: I'm not perfect yet.)
What if I say or do the wrong thing?
Many people who ask me for a private session tell me. . .
"I'm distracted by all the techniques and training opportunities and I don't like marketing!"
"I have so many (or not enough) ideas so I don't know where to start."
"I know what to do but I have a mental block and I'm not doing it!"
This topic is something near and dear to my heart because the Impostor Monster has whispered all these things in my ear too.
When I started seeing clients a few years ago I felt like a total fraud. I had hundreds of hours of training under my belt but it didn't seem like enough.
When clients messaged me about the amazing transformation they'd experienced, I was flabbergasted.
"Wait! You mean it actually worked!?"
I kept moving forward, even though I was terrified of being a fraud.
Client after client.
Group session after group session.
Video after video.
Feeling absolutely ridiculous sometimes.
Doing a happy dance every time someone told me I had changed their life.
The Impostor Monster still whispers in my ear, but it's voice is very quiet now.
I've learned to do it anyway.
Every time I hear about a breakthrough that someone experienced after our session, I feel a wave of gratitude that I was brave.
I did it even though I didn't feel ready.
Have a beautiful day, my friend.
