One of the most powerful understandings I’ve internalized over the past decade hosting this show is this: the world’s top performers, entrepreneurs and creators often feel like they are imposters to their own lives. Operating at the edge of their ability and constantly failing forward comes with the challenge of overcoming self-doubt and imposter syndrome.
The good news? It’s normal to doubt yourself. Even in areas where I consider myself highly proficient there are still moments in the unknown where I question whether I have what it takes to bring my vision into reality.
Remember, every creative effort contains the seeds of a future success. Just like going to the gym, the more you train your emotional and mental strengths to endure the feeling of uncomfortable self-doubt and failure, the more you will persist in pursuing your dreams.
