Do you ever feel anxious about client meetings? Do you worry about being asked a question you don’t know how to answer? Does your stress and anxiety come from a fear of not knowing enough?
Many of you are placing too much importance on what you know. Or more typically, on what you think you know or don’t know. In this episode, I talk about why knowledge is important but, if you suffer from Imposter Syndrome, why it will never be enough.
You’ll hear the story of my client who claims to know he is a good lawyer, but whose thoughts and actions show that he doesn’t actually believe it. This is one of the Hidden Signs of Imposter Syndrome (no.56 – knowing but not believing) which may be causing you to overthink and overwork and could be stopping you from getting the recognition you deserve.
