#5 Who am I anyway?

With January behind us and February speeding by…..

How are you doing? I recently did a detailed self check with a couple of forms provided to me by an online course. It was an enlightening experience that is recommended to revisit periodically. One form explored what’s called “Imposter Syndrome” and the other took a look at any ingrained “False Beliefs” If you’ve never done these exercises before I highly recommend it!

If you are trying to make personal changes or are trying something new, you may be feeling like an “imposter” because you may be feeling uncertain or uncomfortable doing something unfamiliar. “This just isn’t me…..I don’t know what I’m doing”   “I’m not really salesperson….I’ll never succeed at this”  These kind of feelings can get in the way of your willingness to move forward in learning a new skill.  These were a couple of my blocks with my exploration of affiliate marketing.

 A false belief about yourself may equally hold you back: “I’m not good at……”,  “I’m not very outgoing, I’ll never be able to talk to all these people”  “I’m not very interesting, no one wants to hear about my boring life”  “I can do this, No you can’t”  etc. We might not even realize we are holding these beliefs until you explore it with the help of someone or something (a form) to guide you. Then, they/it can help you develop an action plan to address them.  Yup, I held beliefs like these, but now I have a plan to change them.

These limiting beliefs will block your ability to succeed so it’s worth taking the time to get to know yourself just a little better!

  1. Hi Sharel,
    I absolutely agree. False beliefs especially when applied to ourself are very limiting. And it’s really hard to get rid of them because they originate usually from far behind in our life. It is like we have built a nest with these beliefs and we made it our comfort zone. Getting out of it is now difficult because, like a bird, you need to learn to fly by your own. There a mentor can help of course but the big part of the job relies on you. It is to learn who we are first and where we want to go next. Then do what have to do.

    Thank you for this post. It is really engaging. Have a good day!


    1. Hello Martin! Thanks so much for your feedback 😀 I’m happy to hear you see the value in this type of exercise. Have a wonderful, inciteful day.

  2. Hi Sharel,

    This is great. I’m always talking myself out of things. It took me forever to try and to my TikTok. And I do know it’s not the best, but now I can move forward and have something to improve from.
    I downloaded both forms in hopes to help me get realize how I am and what I can do about it.
    Thanks so much,

  3. Hi Sharel, it’s like you read my mind; I totally resonate with this blog. I was so full of self-doubt before joining this coaching but I think I’m slowly getting better. Dean Holland has great way of instilling confidence. Looking forward to your future gems of wisdom. Thankyou!

    1. Hi Andy! It always helps when we face new and significant challenges to hear that we are not alone! Dean is most definitely a strong and positive influence. It’s hard to not believe in the possibilities with him at the helm ❤️
