If you’ve ever thought you might suffer from “imposter syndrome”, this episode’s for you.

When you believe your success comes from somewhere outside of you, it’s hard to feel confident that you’ll be able to make it happen again. You may even find yourself wishing other people would stop applauding your accomplishments because they’ll probably expect you to do it again. You’re not at all convinced that’s possible.

The root cause of imposter syndrome is your belief that your self worth is contingent on your success.

This episode identifies 3 myths that are likely causing you to distrust your success. Learn why none of these myths bear scrutiny. When you start to take credit for all your achievements, you’ll be able to build on them to move your life forward in the direction you want.

I’m a former international tax lawyer and senior partner with Ernst & Young. I left the law in 2014 to learn how to paint. After a couple years painting and selling my work, I became passionate about helping other people who feel stuck in their careers and lives and want to feel more personally fulfilled, invigorated and soul connected. I now spend my time painting, coaching, and creating live events at the George Russell Academy of Creative Expansion in beautiful Prince Edward County, Ontario, Canada.
