Did you know that 70% of people surveyed report experiencing prolonged periods of self-doubt that negatively affect their work, relationships and quality of life? And despite best efforts to get rid of these negative thoughts and feelings, they persist.
These automatic negative thoughts that you have come from what is known as the Imposter Syndrome.
You can’t just stop thinking like an imposter, nor can you be cured as it isn’t a disease. But you can change your brain and change your life by targeting these self-limiting beliefs and behaviors that get in the way of your happiness and fulfillment.
The root causes of the Imposter Syndrome are from childhood, where our development was disrupted and interfered with. We are stuck with self-limiting beliefs and stories that are etched in the neural pathways of our brain. These consistent negative messages, inadequate parenting and traumatic childhood experiences have caused you to live from your self-protective self, instead of living from your Authentic Self.
Did you know that everyone has and uses 4 survival archetypes or Imposter Syndrome Personas?
The 4 Imposter Syndrome Personas are based on the 4 Archetypes of Survival from the work of Caroline Myss and Carl Jung. They are the Child, Victim, Prostitute, and Saboteur Imposter Syndrome Personas.
All of them have the agenda to keep us safe by staying small, but they do it in different ways. We call them Imposter Syndrome Personas because while they represent us and we use them, they are not our Authentic Self.
Our Personas agenda is to protect us and keep us safe. The agenda of our Authentic Self is to achieve our potential. These two agendas are in constant conflict when we aren’t self-aware. We believe the story our Imposter Syndrome tells us to keep us safe.
Because these Personas are in our unconscious and we aren’t aware of them, we get stuck repeating the patterns of behavior and thoughts associated with each of them. We mistake our IS Persona for who we actually are until we take our development into our own hands. These Personas keep us stuck working out the relationship failures of our childhood and repeating patterns of thinking and behavior throughout our adult life.
