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 feeling is ‘I stink.’ I’m a fraud. I need to go and hide,'” he said.  Renée Zellweger says luck has played a starring role in her success and that at times she used to wake up at night and think, “Oh, damn! Here we go again! What were they thinking? They gave me this role; don’t they know I’m faking it?” 
 
Meryl Streep, the most Academy Award and Golden Globe nominated actor in history told Ken Burns in an interview, “You think, ‘Why would anyone want to see me again in a movie? And I don’t know how to act anyway, so why am I doing this?”
The same thing happens with healers of all kinds.
Life coaches, yoga teachers, Reiki healers, therapists, massage practitioners, you name it, this condition affects ALL KINDS OF PEOPLE.
I know, because I am one of them!
In the course of my life so far, I have trained as a hypnotherapist and NLP practitioner, kinesiologist, Reiki healer, Pranic healer, Angel Channeller, journalist, television presenter, dancer, screen-writer, biographer, comedy writer, public speaker, opera singer, meditation teacher, yoga teacher, tarot reader, life coach, and probably a few other things. 
I have a WALL of diplomas! 
I have testimonials and rave reviews from satisfied clients and readers all over the world, including ones from Kate Moss, Johnny Depp, Pat Mc Cabe, JP Donleavy, Marian Keyes and Lynn Barber.
And yet, it has only been in the past year that I have become confident about promoting myself!
So what has held me back?
The fear that somehow all of those people MADE A MISTAKE and I am totally rubbish!  And that I will be found out, and people will throw things at me and humiliate me and I will be so ashamed and embarrassed that I will die of it!!!!
What are we going to do about this?
What would the world be missing out on if everyone who had Imposter Syndrome just went and hid and never told people about their talents, never did anything public?
What about all those amazing people that you already know who are gifted and brilliant and just REFUSE to let people know?
Are you one of them?
Do you want to BREAK AWAY from the fears and doubts?
Do you want to DEMOLISH the demons?
Do you want to TRAMPLE on the trepidation?
How would it be to BE BRAVE enough to step up and step out into the world and show people what you have to offer and to let SUCCESS come to you?
 
I  created the Promoting Your Stuff With Heart and Soul workshop (13th November) to help anyone who suffers from doubts and fears to really get to grips with this obstacle once and for all, to clearly identify exactly what is getting in your way and to discover techniques for overcoming the doubts and fears and to get past them, get over them and get moving onwards and upwards to SALES, RECOGNITION, SUCCESS AND SATISFACTION!
 

‘Promoting your stuff with heart and soul’ is on the 13th November.  To book your place, click here:   http://victoriamaryclarke.com/promoting-your-stuff-with-heart-and-soul-13th-november/
