11 Aug Self Doubt Is Sneaky

Earlier this week I was sharing with excitement a vivid and clear vision on a project I’m creating. I had been working on it for quite some time, could see, smell and feel the results in reach. It’s gotten me up super early as of late because I have been so excited to keep working on it. In a split second, with a single statement my whole belief set around myself and this project changed.
He proceeded to tell me all the reasons people wouldn’t be interested, why I shouldn’t focus on it and why it’s not a good idea. I hadn’t asked for his opinion.
My mood shifted. I felt myself sinking, shrinking, doubting and even wondering if I shouldn’t do it. I questioned if I was “good enough” “smart enough” or even capable to do this. POOF. Just like that. Imposter syndrome snuck up. Ugggggghhh Something I was so driven and focussed in creating and one person, one moment of sharing those doubts had me questioning MY vision.
I questioned myself for a good part of the day and then shifted back to why it WOULD work. Thank…
