Forget “fake it ‘til you make it,” become it — imposter syndrome
- Look for evidence: If you’re feeling like an imposter, your first step is to look for evidence to back yourself up and show yourself you’ve already done something similar in the past.
- Focus on meeting your lowest potential first: We’re always so focused on adding more, achieving more, and being more, when sometimes, we’re not even meeting our basic needs yet. Meet those basic needs first.
- Embody the right energy: Find someone you admire who’s already doing the thing you feel like an imposter about. Examine what you like about them and why they’re so good at what they do. Then look at how you’re already capable of doing that. Instead of faking it ‘til you make it, embody the right energy.
- Regulate your emotions with kindness: Stress can trigger us into an emotional tailspin. When I feel this creeping up, I run to my emotional regulation list which includes things like 4/7/8 breathing, EFT tapping, 60 seconds of jumping jacks, or placing a cold pack on my chest.
- Break it down into smaller bites: If something is triggering or making you feel like an imposter, the best thing you can do is make it smaller. And when I suggest smaller bites, I mean stupid small. Like it will only take you 5 minutes small. And after those 5 minutes, do something nice for yourself, like take a break. Five minutes might not seem like much, but when you’re doing something scary, it so is!
