Imposter Syndrome

ARE YOU FAKING IT?

It’s called Imposter Syndrome. More people than you can imagine experience it. I do, and I’ll bet, you do too.

It’s that nagging feeling that people are going to “find you out.” They will recognize that you are not as good as you claim to be, and they will expose you as an imposter.

Imposter syndrome is one of the most destructive narratives that we create in our minds. It keeps us from trying new things. It stifles our creativity. It denies us our innate greatness. It steals our lives.

Today’s podcast guest, Michelle Gomez is an expert on imposter syndrome. I’ll call her the Imposter Syndrome Buster. She did battle with her own imposter narrative and won. Now, she helps others conquer this dream stealing monster and gain the confidence and self-esteem we all deserve.

  • How books can liberate you

These are just a few of the gems that Michelle Gomez offers you in this podcast. One of the most valuable is the understanding you will gain  about your U C O N – your Unique Cocktail of Needs.

MICHELLE’S FAVORITE QUOTE

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of the deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.” – Theodore Roosevelt

Accidental Success

SUCCESS & ADVERSITY

What is accidental success, and how is it related to adversity? The answer is fascinating, and it may not be what you expect.

Jeff Hall, today’s guest, has achieved massive success with Overflow Cafe, the company he created to help businesses master the SEO game and achieve high rankings online.

You may be surprised when you learn that his journey took him from one accidental success to another. Each time Jeff developed a new skill, he did it by taking bold action in the face of adversity. He put one foot in front of the other, even when we was stepping into the dark.

WINNING AGAINST THE ODDS

Adversity is relative, so what kind of challenges did Jeff Hall face and overcome? Here are just a few:

  • A childhood of abject poverty
  • Bites from bird eating spiders and fire ants
  • Derision as a student for having only one pair of broken down shoes
  • Humiliation for lacking the money to join school outings

DRIVEN BY PAIN

Jeff Hall’s outer world was often very tough. His inner game made him unstoppable, a trait he learned from his remarkable grandmother.

Jeff’s circumstances could have created a powerful victim story for him to live into. Instead, Jeff turned each painful setback into victory.

In this interview, you will learn:

  • How Jeff became a resourceful salesman at the age of seven
  • How he became a computer wiz without knowing a thing about computers
  • How lying about his age took him closer to success
  • How the name Overflow Cafe was just another accident

DISASTER TO MASTER

Today, Jeff’s knowledge and skill, and his company’s expertise offer businesses a powerful unfair advantage in our digital marketplace.

Love it or hate it, businesses need the Internet to grow and thrive in the 21st century. A key ingredient to growth online is strong SEO. Jeff and his Overflow Cafe offer you that.

It’s a wonderful ironic twist that a young man who knew nothing about computers became an internationally recognized SEO expert. He literally proved what one of my mentors, David T.S. Wood, often says, “Every master was once a disaster.”

You will find the life lessons and the business savvy in this interview with Jeff Hall eyeopening and highly entertaining.

You may even tweak your own inner game to make you unstoppable in the face of any obstacle.
