Do you ever find yourself thinking that you don’t know enough, aren’t slim/ pretty or confidence enough/ aren’t experienced enough? Basically just not good enough to achieve your goals?
Let me tell you that you aren’t alone and it’s very common for highly successful people to feel this way to, including the amazing Michelle Obama, Tina Fey and Sheryl Sandberg, who have all publicly said that they felt like a fraud at times.
So what actually is this? It is called Imposter Syndrome and at the core, just not feeling good enough.
Here are some of my top 5 tips to start addressing your Imposter Syndrome.
1. Write down all of your strengths
sit down and write down a list of all your strengths and positive qualities. If you find any resistance to doing this task, simply put on a blank page, “Why am I awesome.....” and just like you would tenaciously go after any other goal in your business, direct that towards answering this question.
Let’s cut through some of the marketing speak and false promises on this. Yes being an entrepreneur is 100% awesome and I would never trade it for an employed role. It is about creating a life and business of your dreams, and this does take work. It does take hustle and it does take hard work and momentum to get a business started especially if you are at the beginning.
Many entrepreneurs also find themselves feeling very isolated and lonely, as they spend large quantities of time on their own. It is one of the reasons as to why I created the Facebook community Entrepreneurs Elevating to bring together those entrepreneurs who are seeking to build a highly profitable and have longevity in business built on solid...
The reason as a mindset ninja coach that selling is so important to me is that no matter what field you are in, the impact on increasing your conversion rate, increasing your average order value and increasing your lifetime customer value has HUGE impact on your business.
The world has undeniably changed for me since I learned not just the techniques but the neuroscience behind how to sell with ease.
As a coach, I used to hate the idea of actually selling my services, it felt sleazy and pushy. And this is something that I hear from so many of my own clients too.
Clients who are tenacious and awesome at what they do, yet selling to them feels like incredibly hard work.

And you are not alone, there are many creative ways that people come up with reasons and ways of procrastinating:
So why do we procrastinate? Often because we haven’t aligned with our bigger vision goals and broken them down in actionable steps.
1 – Be Nice.
One of the quickest ways to break out of the procrastination and guilt cycle is to give yourself a break and stop beating yourself up for procrastinating in the first place.
Remember, after you’ve given yourself a good kicking you are still in the...
Everyone has a relationship with money, and much like any other relationship, you learned the parameters of that relationship, and how to ‘be’ in a relationship with money when you were a child before the age of 7.
If our money story is empowering and we have an ease and flow in attracting, holding and spending money then the financial success we crave is likely to be a reality.
However if your thoughts and feelings about money are disempowering, or they are holding you back, we refer to these as limiting beliefs.
As we grow we try on these limiting beliefs and they can be reinforced by age, so overcoming them in middle to late adulthood can be a challenge.
So what can you do to get rid of those limiting beliefs about money? A simple yet hard step...

I offer hypnosis as part of my extended coaching services to reprogram a wide range of lifestyle and business issues. Hypnosis is a powerful technique and I’ve observed clients connecting with some of their true desires through hypnotherapy.
So I sought out a method that combined coaching and hypnotherapy for connecting with your goals, your true desires and what it actually is that you desire to create. And guess what? I couldn’t find any that resonated.
This is why I set about creating my own unique training method called Imagineering. A practical, hypnotherapy based approach around Ericksonian hypnosis created by psychiatrist Milton Erickson. Imagineering combines light trance hypnotherapy with powerful coaching techniques that has allowed...

2 – Failure is not durable
