Episode #139 Get Out Of Your Own Head

When you have Imposter Syndrome, one of your biggest struggles is with Overthinking. If your Imposter Syndrome is triggered, the fear and anxiety send you spiralling into thought drama. By worrying, panicking and mentally preparing for the worst, your brain is trying to protect you from potential danger.

But when the perceived danger is a work challenge, all this Overthinking isn’t protective, it’s detrimental.

Being ‘in your own head’ means:

  •    You’re not fully present in your environment.
  •    You experience the world through the filter of your negative thoughts.

So you are:

  • Less  efficient (things take you longer).
  • Less effective (you’re less focused).
  • More hesitant, quieter, withdrawn (where you are making negative assumptions).

All of which stops you from progressing in your career.

In this podcast episode, I explain the importance of ‘getting out of your own head’.

We cover:

  • Why you need to be able to shift your attention away from your thoughts and direct it towards what is actually happening right in front of you.
  • When you need to be able to do it.
  • How to do it.
  • The Blink-of-an-eye Attention Redirection strategy I teach in Imposter Syndrome Coaching.
  • Obstacles to expect and how to overcome them.

When you’ve learned how to stop Overthinking you are more alert and focused and 100x more effective. You notice more. You think more clearly, solve problems more quickly. You’re free to be creative, more responsive. And you’ll be so much more in control.
