Story: Impostor syndrome. Who am I to speak on this stage at this level. Who am I to have a translator and to have their hair and makeup done and flown my husband and daughter down to Brazil.
Impostor syndrome: is a psychological pattern in which an individual doubts their accomplishments and has a persistent internalized fear of being exposed as a "fraud".
My coach told me that it never goes away. As soon as you hit one level, there’s another level that you need to break through and scarier things and she was so right.
If I could do that, I can do anything. Give me any stage, I’ll nail it.
It’s also how I feel about childbirth, I had a lot of self-doubt about the labor process and going into it I really wanted a natural childbirth for both of my daughters. Even with personal things like childbirth the same steps apply. I’ll talk more about childbirth at the end of this podcast in case you could care less.
