Do you question your abilities and struggle with feeling that you are not qualified to be at the level where you currently are? Maybe you are having a negative inner dialogue that needs to be changed. If so, please know you are not alone! This episode will enlighten you to what you are really experiencing, the fact that you are part of a large community of people going through the same thing, and that there are ways to deal with these thoughts! Dr. Laura Mach welcomes Empowerment Coach Dr. Jessica Metcalfe who shares her story and explains how the “Imposter Phenomenon” can be dismantled.

Most people have some elements of Imposter Phenomenon happening. However there are ways to escape it and become comfortable again. When experiencing times of self-doubt, it is important to not push these feelings under the rug; rather, give yourself permission to think about what you’re thinking and acknowledge that your brain is wired to be negative because it’s trying to find potential problems and keep you safe. So give your brain some grace, and choose to look at all of the positives in your life. Sometimes this is not a natural process, but there are easy exercises you can do to overcome this! Listen to this episode for details that will not only shed some light on your thoughts but help you change how you think, which will change how you feel… leading to many positive changes for you and those around you as you lift yourself up and let your light shine! Listen now!
