Ways to Conquer Imposter Syndrome – Dr. Ericka Goodwin

by | Feb 3, 2021 | Podcast

Doubt is a feeling that can haunt us– doubt in our abilities, accomplishments, and sometimes even our talents and skills. If you feel this way– then it’s not just you. I know I myself have struggled with it.

In this episode we discuss Imposter Syndrome, or a psychological pattern in which an individual doubts their skills, talents or accomplishments and has a persistent internalized fear of being exposed as a “fraud”. People sometimes fail not because of their abilities or lack thereof but because of mentally holding themselves back. Join as I talk to Dr. Ericka Goodwin. We go in depth about this mental trap that 7 out of 10 people are caught in at least once.
