Imposter Syndrome: How it may be limiting your happiness and success

Loving Warrior Women Coaching
Have you ever felt that you’re not as smart as others perceive you to be? That you’re not really deserving of your success? That some day you’ll be discovered as an “intellectual phony,” and your world will come crumbling down around you? If so, you’re in the company of many other competent women!
Years ago, this was my experience. I felt alone, anxious, and suffered terribly. It was my “dirty little secret.” At the time, I was working in a male-dominated environment, as the lone female manager in the history of the organization. At home, my son had just been diagnosed with autism, and my daughter had just turned one. It wasn’t until I happened across an article on Imposter Syndrome that I realized that I wasn’t alone! I was flooded with relief, and grateful that there was a name for what I was experiencing.
How your Body Affects your Bottom Line
By Dr. Sarah Wild
We all know that we are supposed take care of our health, but where exactly are you supposed to fit in the ever elusive “time for yourself?” As an entrepreneur, the details of growing a business can consume your mind and your time. But do you realize that the function of your body directly translates into dollars and cents, and that you could make a huge jump in the growth of your business by actually taking some time away from it?
You are what you eat…even at work!
Eating well consistently can be difficult as meals often become an afterthought in our busy lives. However, it is important to think about your nutrition habits as the fuel your brain and body will be using to complete your daily business tasks. Poor diet habits can increase fatigue and irritability; and decrease mental effectiveness; your ability to think clearly; and perform your job effectively. They are also linked with higher levels of stress and depression.
