The Imposter Syndrome Challenge

With Sarah Raad

Stop worrying, start living!

 

Many of us are familiar with imposter syndrome, feeling that we are not good enough, talented enough and accomplished enough and that any minute now we are going to be found out as the fraud that we are.

 

Imposter syndrome affects the lives of many people and the insecurities and uncertainties around the recent pandemic have increased these feelings for a lot of us.

 

But your coach Sarah Raad has a solution!

 

In this challenge, you will learn about your imposter syndrome and how to deal with is so that it no longer holds you back in life.

 

The challenge includes a video to watch and downloadable workbook to work through a five day programme and record your findings. Sarah will help you to explore your imposter syndrome and show you how to start busting your feelings of self doubt and imposter syndrome.

You will learn some quick and easy ways to get your unworthy thoughts back in check and start to generate positive feelings about your talents, strengths and capabilities! You can choose to take action straight away or work through the material in your own time.

 

Once you have gone through the material and completed the tasks you will feel more confident in your abilities and in control of the unhelpful voice in your head.
