How to Get Rid of Impostor Syndrome
Have you ever feel like everything you have is because of luck?
Like some sort of random events took you where you are right now.
You have that constant feeling of being underprepared… like you are not good enough and people are going to find the “truth” behind your success.
Well, let me tell you that this feeling is completely normal and there are a lot of successful people who have suffered from Impostor Syndrome.
You’re not alone
Maybe you have heard about some of these awesome women 😉
Sigourney Weaver – “Have I ever doubted myself? Have I ever not? I feel self-doubt whether I’m doing something hard or easy.” —Esquire, January 2010
Jodie Foster – On winning an Oscar for her role in The Accused: “I thought it was a big fluke. The same way when I walked on the campus at Yale, I thought everybody would find out, and then they’d take the Oscar back.” —60 Minutes, December 1999
Maya Angelou – “I have written 11 books, but each time I think, ‘uh oh, they’re going to find out now. I’ve run a game on everybody, and they’re going to find me out.’”
Impostor Syndrome didn’t stop these women and it’s not gonna stop you.
What can you do about it?
First of all, keep in mind that you are 100% responsible for your success or failure, of course, luck it’s important but… have you noticed that the harder you work the luckier you get.
You need to stop putting the focus on you, and put the focus on the people you are trying to help… your community.
Once you put all the effort on solving other people problems, impostor syndrome disappears.
When you working hard, there is no time for any shitty syndrome.
Focus on providing value and you’ll be fine.

Hi! I’m Vanessa Cast. Business Coach focused on Mompreneurs, long-time entrepreneur and unshakable #DreamsPrinter, dedicated to helping you live according to your priorities by profiting out of your passions and abilities.
I was only 19 years old when I started my first business, it was a computer retail online store, after that, and to make a long story short, I played many years in corporate life, in a very nice job, with a great salary.
But in 2013 (this is a super happy “but”) Alex was born, so I had this feeling that I need to find a more meaningful thing to do, something to build a better world for my little boy. A few months later I decided to resume my entrepreneurship career.
I’d love to tell you that it was a piece of cake, but no… it was hard. I’ve run many different businesses while cradling my newborn: A Motivational Subscription Box, Consulting Services, and even a Bakery… Sweet!
This gave me the opportunity to raise my son based on my own schedule and not my boss’. And at the same time, I was helping others to reach their goals.
