"The amateur fears, above all else, becoming (and being seen and judged as) his or her self." -- Steven Pressfield (from Turning Pro)
I was 24 years old and had just been given my first team to lead.
Externally, I was like GAME ON, LET'S DO THIS!
But on the inside, "who am I to lead and train salespeople?"
For 9 years, this voice got louder and louder. "What if I get seen for who I really am--that they see the truth that I really don't know what I'm doing."
Let me tell you how to get your hands around imposter syndrome...oh and btw it's not what you think!
Note: The book I mention from Steven Pressfield is called The War of Art (not the art of war) - click here to get a copy for yourself.
