We’ve all had moments of doubt or feelings of inadequacy at some point in our lives. When we try new things, we become more vulnerable and may see ourselves as “not good enough.” Today, I am giving you some tips on how to beat these feelings of inadequacy and feeling like you aren’t good enough so you can see that you belong.
In this episode, we are diving into a common mindset block that authors face. I am sharing with you an experience I recently had where I felt like I didn’t belong and how I overcame those emotions. We are looking at how to handle dealing with doubt and comparison, three reasons we feel we don’t belong, and why you ARE an author and you DO belong. If you have struggled with feeling like you don’t belong or aren’t really an author, this is an episode you don’t want to miss!
