Do you have ‘Imposter Syndrome’?

Do you have ‘Imposter Syndrome’?

Do you have ‘Imposter Syndrome’? Have you spent years and years and an absolute fortune on trainings/courses/advanced trainings/workshops/diplomas/programmes only to STILL feel that you are not quite ready to go out into the world and offer people a chance to try/buy your skills?  Do you think that you might be ready one day in the future when you have completed a few more programmes and trainings? If you answered yes to these questions, you may be suffering from ‘Imposter Syndrome’! You would not be alone. Many of the most world’s most talented and famous artists/writers/painters/actors/musicians/academics/scientists/leaders have struggled with this problem. Academy Award winner Jodie Foster told 60 Minutes she feared she’s have to give her Oscar back after winning best actor for The Accused. “I thought it was a fluke,” she said in the interview. “[It was] the same way when I walked on the campus at Yale. I thought everybody would find out, and they’d take the Oscar back. They’d come to my house, knocking on the door, ‘Excuse me, we meant to give that to someone else. That was going to Meryl Streep.'” Academy award winning actor Kate Winslet says fame doesn’t give you confidence. “Sometimes I wake up in the morning before going off to a shoot, and I think, I can’t do this. I’m a fraud,” she told author Susan Pinker. Chuck Lorre, writer and creator of hits such as Two and Half Men and The Big Bang Theory told National Public Radio that he needs to “go and hide”. “When you go and watch a rehearsal of something you’ve written and it stinks, the natural...
Do you PROCRASTINATE about promoting yourself?

Do you PROCRASTINATE about promoting yourself?

Do you PROCRASTINATE about promoting yourself? Do you hesitate to let people know about your business? Are you waiting to be ‘ready’ to put yourself out there? Are you secretly afraid of what might happen if you got clients/sales? For many, many years I was like that!  I was afraid that people would criticise me and my work, afraid that people would say I was rubbish and that I didn’t know what I was talking about, afraid that people would say I was ripping people off, afraid that people would hate me and be angry with me!  I was like this about teaching yoga, giving workshops, doing angel channelling for people and media coaching.  I know what it feels like! What was the result of my feeling this way? I hardly ever promoted my work. I only wanted close friends to come, no strangers! I was inconsistent about working. I made sure that my website had no sales message whatsoever, no call to action and no way to pay me! I regularly turned down clients. I hoped that hardly anyone would come to my workshops. Where did that get me? I was frustrated and broke and unfulfilled and envious of people who were successful in their businesses. So what happened? The change started with a decision. I decided that I wanted something different. I decided that I wanted to be successful. In order to do this, I needed to find out what was getting in my way. I didn’t know what I could do to fix the situation, so I worked with a coach to identify what my limiting...
Do You Doubt That You Are Good Enough?

Do You Doubt That You Are Good Enough?

Do You Doubt That You Are Good Enough? So you have a passion, a talent, an invention, a product or a service.  You have poured your heart and soul into creating it and making it the very best it can be.  In your dreams, you imagine loads and loads of people discovering you, raving about you, buying from you and being delighted by what you have brought to their world.  You are the cream on their profiterole, the steam in their latte, the sun coming out on a winter’s day.  You have changed lives!  You have made the world a better place!  You have inspired hope and brought joy! But no.  Alas not.  Because nobody actually knows you exist, at least not very many people do, only your immediate circle.   Why?  Because you are shy.  You worry that you might not be quite good enough yet to venture out into the world.  You just want to stay safe.  You just want to stay small.  You just want to hide.  Sure maybe the right people will find you, eventually? Maybe they will. But when you are hesitant, when you try to hide, when you want to stay invisible, it is not so easy for people to discover you! You need to ask yourself this question. ‘WHAT am I really getting from hiding???’ ‘What am I really getting from staying invisible?” Am I getting anything of real value? And you need to ask yourself ‘What do I really want?’ If you really really really want the world to benefit from what you have to offer, you need to explode and...
Are you 100% CONFIDENT about promoting yourself?

Are you 100% CONFIDENT about promoting yourself?

Are you 100% CONFIDENT about promoting yourself? Sometimes we can be a bit wishy washy/wibbly wobbly about telling the world how great the stuff is that we are promoting?  Maybe this is because we are unsure of ourselves, or not quite convinced that we are good enough or that our stuff is good enough.    Maybe we have IMPOSTER SYNDROME, and we worry that if anyone looks too closely, they will see that we are rubbish!!!!!   If you go out in the world to promote your business, and you are unsure whether it is any good, if you secretly think it might not be good enough, you send out a very confusing message.   People sense your hesitancy and it makes it more difficult for them to decide to buy from you!  You don’t fully trust yourself, so why would they trust you?   I created my ‘Promoting  Your Stuff with Heart and Soul’ workshop so that we can pull out all those gremlins that are getting in your way, all the doubts, fears and limiting beliefs.    Once we know what they are we can dismantle and transform them into positive, clear, supportive and uplifting beliefs, beliefs that radiate confidence and purpose and certainty and let the world know that you mean business and that you are exactly what they need and want in their lives!   With this certainty and clarity, you can instil confidence in potential customers, they sense that you believe in what you are selling, and you transmit this confidence to them.   As well as working consciously with the old beliefs, we...

What are your Money Blocks?

What are your Money Blocks?

What are your Money Blocks? Do you LOVE money, do you want more of it in your life?  Or do you secretly hate it, fear it and repel it???? The fabulous Breda Stackpool https://www.facebook.com/breda.stackpool?fref=ts  brought this possibility to my attention at her recent ‘Day out for your business’.  She told us all to take out some money and hold it in our paws and think about the effect it has on us.  Some people said they felt anxious (somebody cried!)  Not many of us were COMFORTABLE with the money.  So Breda suggested that we write a letter to money, telling it what we really think of it! I absolutely LOVE working with my angel channelling clients on identifying and releasing money blocks, because I feel strongly that our sense of self worth and our sense that we are worthy of money are linked, and when we get this, we suddenly feel a huge shift and become more magnetic to the money! I came across this list of ways that we attract money and ways that we repel it, from the wonderful guide Orin.  Well worth checking out!  www.orindaben.com Below is a summary of the qualities that attract and repel money. Close your eyes and think of a number between 1 and 42. Refer to that number on the list below.  For one day, work on developing the attracting quality of the pair below. If you notice yourself doing something that repels money and abundance, simply place a positive, attracting thought or action alongside the negative, repelling one. Honoring your worth and time/ Not honoring your worth and time. Giving...
