I know what you’re going through, because I used to be a slave to anxiety and imposter syndrome – I felt I was broken, because I believed all the thoughts whirling round my mind.
I had plenty of friends and I was successful and good at my job, but I was the most horrible person – to myself! I wasn’t a bitch to other people, so eventually, I asked: why was I so at the mercy of my inner critic (or The Bitch, as I like to call her)?
It came to a head in a dramatic way. I eventually had a nervous breakdown in my early 30s, after which I decided to take back control and choose what happened in my story. I discovered the life-changing magic of coaching, NLP (neurolinguistic programming) and neuroplasticity (the brain’s ability to change its thinking patterns) and turned my life around.
Time to start writing a better story than the one you’ve been telling yourself, possibly for decades, as I had been.
I’m a feminist, but I am going to quote an old, white, dead man:
Never was a truer word spoken, ladies.
You need real-life actions, to take control of your mind, to lead a life with purpose and to believe in yourself.
This way of thinking produced the results I wanted. And you can do this too.
