When you hear of others who’ve overcome long-held, self-limiting beliefs and behaviors it can inspire hope that you can do the same.
In the six years since The Secret Thoughts of Successful Women has been out, I’ve received dozens of emails from people who said the book made a difference in their lives.
One found the confidence to run for Lieutenant Governor.
Several others asked for — and got — long overdue promotions or raises.
Others found the courage to take the leap to self-employment or otherwise make a major career change.
Still others finally began to write their book or do their art or otherwise take their dreams seriously.
Naturally hearing these stories has been tremendously rewarding for me. As Katharine Graham said, “To love what you do and feel that it matters, how could anything else be more fun?“
I couldn’t help wonder how encouraging it would be for others to see that it really IS possible to beat the impostor syndrome so you to finally see yourself as the bright and capable man or woman you truly are.
