I’m not sure I can do this, they’ve over estimated my abilities, I think I’m going to get found out, I’m scared I’ve taken on too much, what if I fail and I can’t do it? Does this sounds familiar? Do you feel no matter how hard you work it’s never quite enough? Do you worry what other people will think? Do you tend to avoid taking risks or taking on challenges through fear that you’re not quite ready yet? Do you hold exceedingly high expectations of yourself and always aim for perfection?
You’re not alone; these thoughts played continuously in my mind despite countless promotions as I worked my way up the ladder and then as I sat around leadership tables and worked with groups of leaders in my Leadership Development work these thoughts echoed in their minds too. It’s more common than we think yet never talked about and the more we succeed the louder this voice becomes. But it’s not reality, it is just that; a voice in our heads often clouded by our brains negativity bias. Don’t let it slow your progress or allow these feelings to prevent you achieving your potential – learn how to navigate your negativity bias, overcome feelings of self-doubt, build resilience and face these fears to be the person you’re capable of being.
