When I first started pursuing coaching and the whole online expert space, I had the biggest struggle with “Imposter Syndrome” or feeling like a fraud! Everyone focuses on what makes them unique and different. However, the more coaches and experts I spoke to, the more I recognized how similar we were.
There was not ONE person that I spoke to that did not experience this hidden fear and insecurity at one point in time in their business.
In fact, the challenges and struggles most of the experts experienced were the very “thing” they coached and trained on!
What really caught my attention was when my closest mentors, who I consider at the top level admitted to the same fears and insecurities at their higher levels!
I realized that anytime you pursue the next level in your business or life, there is a good chance you too will be hit with “Imposter Syndrome.”
Watch this week’s episode on how to hang up your hat as the expert so that you can focus on what’s truly important and that's serving the people you are meant to serve.
Here are four key elements to help you redefine your identity, how you see yourself, and what you see yourself doing long-term.
Defining or redefining your new identity will help you intentionally, purposefully and consciously step into the best you.
Values – What are your top 10 values? Prioritize them in order of importance.
Focus – Where do you spend most of your time focusing and thinking?
Character – What do you stand for? What do you commit to and hold yourself responsible for?
Boundaries – What you will and will no longer tolerate from yourself?
Think of these four elements like a sculptor molding a blob of clay until it turns into a masterpiece.
Be willing and enjoy going through the clunky until your new identity starts to feel like the real you. The masterpiece that is YOU!
