Can you believe that we are approaching a new year? As I reflect back, it has been adventurous, which was my theme word for 2018. One major decision that I had to do was
I knew I had to do it.
Last weekend, I was invited to a silent retreat and decided to go after hearing so many positive experiences from others. I must admit for a NYC lady who is surrounded by ongoing distractions, who talks and listens for a living, this was a huge deal for me. Several days before leaving, my friend cancelled on me, and I immediately said, I’m not going to this retreat alone and share a room with strangers! But then, I paused and just said YES! Why? Well, I suddenly remembered that my theme word for 2018 is “ADVENTUROUS” and I knew that going alone, spending the weekend in the mountains with strangers was definitely an adventure for me.
What if my colleagues find out that I am not good at my job?, What if I really do not deserve my job in the first place? What if I don’t have what it takes to run a business and I am just acting the part? These are only some of the thoughts that can seep into a person’s head when they are suffering from impostor syndrome.
