Overcoming Imposter Anxiety: Move Beyond Fear of Failure and Self-Doubt to Embrace Your Worthy, Capable Self
Start living with greater courage, confidence, and authenticity
Do you ever worry that you aren't good enough or capable enough, despite your many accomplishments? Have you achieved high levels of success, yet still feel as though you're just "faking it?" If so, you might be dealing with imposter anxiety--a persistent fear of being exposed as a fraud, even in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary. Remember, you are not alone. Too often, highly talented individuals allow imposter anxiety to distort their views of themselves. So, how can you embrace your boundless potential and forge ahead with confidence?
In Overcoming Imposter Anxiety, you'll find strategies grounded in liberation psychology and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to help you stand up to self-doubt, alleviate fear of failure, and live with authenticity. You'll also identify the root cause of your self-sabotaging behaviors, and shift your mindset to honor your achievements and affirm your strengths. If you're ready to move beyond self-limiting beliefs and start living life with greater courage and self-worth, this book will help guide you, step by step.
Discover tools to help you:
- Manage self-doubting thoughts and feelings
- Overcome your fear of failure
- Leverage your unique qualities
