I’m Not Worthy To Put Myself Out There

“I’m not good enough.

“I don’t know enough.”

“There are others who know more than I do about this.”

“What if someone asks a question I can’t answer?”

“I’m not a great writer.”

“I don’t look good on camera.”

“I cringe when I hear my voice.”

Sound Familiar?

Do any of those sound or feel familiar? I want you to know you’re not alone. You don’t have to travel far to find others who suffer from imposter syndrome.

It isn’t a medical condition, but it can make you sick inside, tied up in knots, anxious about putting yourself out there for others to see, hear, and feel.

How Will They Choose You?

Others need to know what you have to offer before they can choose you to help them.

They need to feel confident they are making the right decision when asking for your help.

You need to make their decision easier.

You Should Know

I want you to know:

  • You are good enough.
  • You know enough.
  • There will always be others who know more than you.
  • You will always know more than many others.
  • You will be able to answer the questions.
  • If you aren’t sure, research the data and learn the answers.
  • You don’t have to be a best-selling author to write words that are important to others.
  • Your writing improves with practice.
  • You aren’t the one viewing you on camera. You will always be more critical of yourself than others.
  • You sound much better than you realize, especially when your words are helpful.

Bottom Line

You are more than enough. You can do this. You need to put yourself out there so others can find you.

Give them something that makes their decision easier to choose you over someone else.

Give them you.

Let’s kick imposter syndrome to the curb where it belongs.
