The Woes of Imposter Syndrome (and How to Beat it!)

In this episode, I dive into the issue of imposter syndrome, especially how it affects aspiring entrepreneurs, education consultants, and those from marginalized communities.

Drawing from my experiences and discussions with clients, I challenge the conventional understanding of imposter syndrome and highlight the external forces that exacerbate self-doubt. I also share practical strategies that have helped me and others overcome these challenges, empowering us to build confidence and own our accomplishments. By understanding its root causes and adopting effective practices, we can manage and overcome these feelings.

Join me in this journey of beating the woes of imposter syndrome, reclaiming your confidence, and recognizing your true worth. Tune in.

KEY POINTS:

  • Reshifting perspective about imposter syndrome
  • The impact of societal structures and power dynamics
  • How Dr. Erica shifted her confidence and perception of her abilities
  • The importance of surrounding yourself with peers and mentors
  • Keep a record of your accomplishments to combat self-doubts
  • Reinforce a positive mindset through gratitude and reflection
  • Imposter syndrome: a byproduct of systemic issues

QUOTES:

"We need to talk about imposter syndrome differently because it's easier to criticize people than interrogate systems." – Dr. Erica Jordan Thomas

"Weekly planning isn't just for business; it's crucial for my mindset. Every single week, I sit down and look at my business. And the very first thing that I do is I reflect on the last week and think of five things that I'm grateful for." – Dr. Erica Jordan Thomas

Listened to my first episode today, Chalkboards to Checkbooks and loved it! Great information that is so helpful! My career is not in education but the tips in here can be applied to anyone and are fundamental to meeting your goals or in some cases like Erinn’s - recalibrating them to be in line with your worth and what you can really achieve!
