  1. Sometimes, I start doubting whether anyone will want to read my book or blog for that matter. I have some of each imposter tendency but I a more of a soloist myself I think. I don’t like asking for help (but I have gotten a lot better!)

    Good post!

  2. I guess, I dont possess any of the imposter syndromes. I don’t know but for every failure and mistakes I make, I just get up and face the consequence. That’s how I deal everything.

  3. Oh, I sometimes feel this way. So there’s a name for it. At least I’m on the right track when it comes to reminding myself of my positive traits when I’m suddenly gripped with self-doubt.

  4. I am glad you are going to be posting your video on YouTube. I have had a perfectionist streak that I am trying to eliminate as it stands in the way of progress!

    1. I never was a perfectionist… but somehow as I got older something shifted in me and I think if I work through all my crap I could get back to being a little bit more carefree.

  5. Hi Michele, I love stopping by your blog as most of what you post here is relatable. I had imposter syndrome when I was younger – Superwoman. I used to feel that my efforts aren’t enough even how hard I push myself. Self-doubt was truly my enemy back then. Until I started being kind to myself (and the pep talk), I was able to recover from it. Thank you so much for the reminder. ❤️

  6. Hey Michelle! Great blog and totally relatable. Since I hurt my knee I I feel like an imposter teaching fitness. On the up though as its healing.

    Keep, shining. X

  7. I love this post! This is something I have experienced and I work with my client in my Hypnotherapy practice. For anyone experiencing this, I say first of all, be kind to yourself and remember…just because you think the thoughts you do, it doesn’t make them real or true.

  8. I enjoyed watching your videos Michele , so relatable ! Since I started blogging I had imposter syndrome like never before, constantly feeling like Im a fraud and I’m going to fail. Go to know I’m not alone
