In 2020 we have this false notion that we should just BE. Like…voila, I am. Voila, I am a college graduate. Voila, I am married. Voila, I have a healthy and loving relationship with myself. But, that’s not how life works. Especially when it comes to love, even loving ourselves.
“You’re not inspirational.” Words spoken into my life by a highly respected and influential leader. I’m not gonna lie. Those words caused me to believe I wasn’t good enough to be an effective leader. Because a leader is supposed to be inspirational right?
As I look over this past decade of my life, I’ve discovered and experienced a greater sense of joy, purpose, well-being, peace, and significance by letting go of 6 major things (see below). In 2020 and beyond, I commit to embracing 6 other things at a greater level so I can receive all God wants to do in and through me. It’s time for me to live a better story. How about you? What’s on your “let go” and “embrace” list? I’d love to know!
What is imposter syndrome?
Do you attribute your success to luck or coincidence?
Do you agonize over the smallest flaws or imperfections in your work?
When you succeed, do you secretly feel like you’ve fooled others again?
Do you worry that it’s just a matter of time before others find out you’ve been “running a game” on them?
