I feel out of my depth… A conversation with a stranger on the train. Now a potential client. Flying in business. Surprising himself. Business opportunities are being presented - why him? He’s taking punts, listens to his gut. He takes action. But, he’s now in the room with senior corporate people, their language is different. “They make their points so eloquently.” He says it ‘as it is’. He doesn’t feel that is good enough. Is he good enough? Imposter syndrome or a lack of self confidence - it can still happen to you as a high performer. ✅ Acknowledge it ✅ Evidence - what are the facts? ✅ Discuss the situation ✅ Reframe The above 4 step process is what I use with clients to challenge this negative chatter. There are more positive psychology interventions that can help - once the root cause is being dealt with. Reframing negative thoughts with more helpful ones is the aim. What we tell ourselves we are, we will become. ACTION ➡️ MOMENTUM ➡️ RESULTS
