Success is often clouded by self-doubt and the fear of being exposed as an imposter. In this latest episode Greg and I discuss overcoming these fears through authenticity and vulnerability.

We share our experiences with imposter syndrome and discuss the impact of societal pressures and curated social media. We offer insights from our backgrounds in business, martial arts, real estate, providing strategies to help you fight self-doubt.

We examine the role of external validation and emphasize the importance of internal metrics, highlighting Gary Vaynerchuk’s and Dr. Sean Pastuch’s insights. We define imposter syndrome and its various types, using personal stories to illustrate our journey through self-acceptance.

One significant takeaway is the struggle with pricing our worth. We discuss how the tension between commercial success and artistic integrity can fuel imposter feelings, especially when it comes to pricing and negotiation. We stress the importance of valuing one’s work and charging what one is truly worth.

Remember, imposter syndrome doesn’t define you. It’s a shared experience, and by confronting it with honesty and courage, we can all emerge victorious.

Definition of Imposter Syndrome:

Imposter Syndrome refers to a psychological phenomenon where individuals doubt their accomplishments and have a persistent fear of being exposed as a fraud, despite evidence of their competence and success. It involves feelings of inadequacy and the belief that one does not deserve their achievements.

Gary Vaynerchuck

Kill “imposter syndrome” as a word, call it what is is “insecurity”.

Practice making yourself uncomfortable to overcome it.

Dr. Sean Pastuch

“It’s not imposter syndrome, it’s integrity syndrome”

Integrity Syndrome: The fear of making a promise you are unable to deliver on due to a lack of perceived education or experience.

“Only make promises you know you can keep.”

When you’re not sure, instead of promising the result, promise the process.

“I’m not exactly sure what it’s going to take, but I’m positive I’m going to work harder than anyone you’ve ever met to figure it out. That’s all I can promise, and I’d love to help you.”
