Tanya Geisler: The Imposter Complex
Do you ever feel like you’re not good enough? That any moment now, someone might tap you on the shoulder and tell you the jig is up and you’ve been rumbled? That even though other people might see you as successful and accomplished, but inside you just don’t feel it?
If so, you might be experiencing The Imposter Complex. My guest today is Tedx Speaker and Leadership Coach Tanya Geisler who, in her own words is so obsessed and passionate about helping women overcome the Imposter Complex that:
‘This wakes up in the middle of the night! I can’t sleep from thinking about this stuff’
For Tanya, The Imposter Complex affects pretty much every aspect of our lives – from not feeling ‘good enough’ to procrastination, fear of visibility, shame, connection and fear of success.
She even did a Tedx talk on just this subject
The Impostor Complex lies.
It lies and lies and lies. It tells you that you’re not ready yet. That any success you’ve had has been a fluke. That it’s just a matter of time before “they” find you out (and, well, your lack of talent).
Like I said: lies, lies, lies and more lies.
Knowing the lies makes way for the TRUTH.
