Back when I was in graduate school learning to become a therapist (more than two decades ago—yikes!), I was assigned an internship at a local non-profit clinic where I saw my first clients under the supervision of a seasoned clinician.
I came out of my first session, went into her office, and threw myself on her couch.
“Ah shit,” I said, “You’re not going to believe what I almost did in there.”
My supervisor was a sage woman with infinite empathy. “Tell me,” she replied without judgment.
“I almost told that poor woman she should go see a therapist. Then I remembered that would be…ME!”
We both burst into laughter.
Writer, EVERYONE feels like an imposter…until they don’t. There is a little voice (or two) inside of each of us saying:
- You’re a fraud
- You don’t have what it takes to do this
- You’re not good enough
- You don’t deserve this dream
- You don’t know what the hell you’re doing
- Your laundry (your work, making dinner, whatever) is more important than writing this book
- Everyone will be mad at you if you say THAT
- Someone else already wrote this book
- You’re too busy; there is never enough time
My friend… you can NOT afford to let those voices LEAD your life. The key to thriving in anything is to making sure your INNER CHAMPION, not your Inner Critic is in leadership.
