How to overcome imposter syndrome - Heather Gray - Mindset Consultant
Heather Gray is a Business Mindset coach and consultant it was so nice to hear Heather's upbeat no-nonsense approach to a business mindset
When we start a new business or make changes to existing business we often feel as though we have a mountain to climb and can easily start to compare ourselves to others
We discussed, what is impostor syndrome, if it’s a real problem or just a word we use to cover up our insecurities and how to do a gut check ... are we really working as hard as we should, are the barriers as big as we think
Is our confidence affected when we do things because others expect them of us, rather than use the tools that feel right and comfortable for us and enable us to deliver our best self.
Heather believes that often there are so many choices and different ways to communicate with social media and online platforms that forcing ourselves to use mediums that don’t fit our personality can make us feel uncomfortable and affect our mindset and delivery
Why force yourself to use live video when you’re never going to feel comfortable, why write a blog if what you write doesn’t come naturally, we talk about finding the right tools that will help you make a move forward and give you confidence.
We also speak about the importance of showing up like a BOSS!
We have to spend so much time on the relationship part of building a business that we forget that we have a product or service to sell and when we show up in our business we are there to convert what we do into sales.
If you feel sometimes that you show up small when it comes to sales?
Maybe you show up apologetically, rather than showing up with enthusiasm and pride and passion when you sell ....You really need to listen to this podcast
What Heather says makes so much sense.
