Do you experience self-doubt? (i.e. are you human?)
I don’t know about you, but I totally get the self-doubt bug whenever I’m trying something new, doing something that requires a greater level of visibility, or growing in some way. In the past, I’ve taken this self-doubt and attached a meaning to it, which usually looks like “I’m not ready to do X,” “I’m not the right person for this,” or “Who am I do be thinking about doing this?”
Enter leadership coach Tanya Geisler, who calls this kind of thinking The Imposter Complex.
In this excerpt from our interview for The Entrepreneur’s Inner World, Tanya shares why our self-doubt doesn’t mean what we think it means (hint: believe it or not, it’s actually a good thing!)
When you reframe your own self-doubt in this way, what is it really telling you?
