Shut Up, Self Doubt!
DescriptionWomen frequently express that they don’t feel they deserve their job and are “imposters” who could be found out at any moment. Many recent studies (and self-experiences) have found that women worry more about being disliked, appearing unattractive, outshining others or grabbing too much attention. So how can you get around that, how can you overcome those times of self-doubt so that you can move forward? This session will explore various habits that can help decrease that destructive inner voice and seize opportunities.
What will you learn?
1. Say Stop - When our inner doubts bubble up, be quick. Don’t let negative thoughts grow from a whisper to a stream of discouraging sentences.
2. Look Behind - Dedicated reflection on previous self-doubt and the actual realization of those experiences. Chances are, the “worst case scenario” was not the worst case.
3. Evaluate Forever - Trying to plan every move will make even the most organized women feel drained and lead to self-doubt. Learn the idea of course-correction and its benefits in eliminating self-doubt.
