Video provides so many opportunities for individual creators and every type of business. That being said, some creators struggle to create video content. One reason happens to be imposter syndrome, the psychological force that prevents high-performers from achieving their goals. The good news is that you can fight this force when you are on video. In this episode of Connection Loop, Dubb founder Ruben Dua spoke with Felicia Miller Johnson to discuss both imposter syndrome on video and how we can learn to be confident. You will hear many different insights and takeaways in this episode, including:
Perfection can be one of the biggest roadblocks in appearing confident on camera. The great news is that you certainly don’t need to be perfect to be effective. Be easy on yourself. By convincing yourself to put your perfectionist tendencies to the side, you will become more comfortable on camera.
A complete mindset shift can help ease your anxiety and tension in front of the camera. Emphasizing the positive over the negative makes you get into the best frame of mind to speak confidently and assuredly. And if you think nothing positive is occurring? Rest assured that you are experiencing at least something that is positive in your life right now. Rely on that.
Recognize that you are enough. We all have goals or visions about the person that we want to become. However, at this moment, you are worthy of your goals. You are enough—whether you are succeeding beyond your wildest expectations or are going through extremely difficult circumstances.
Overcoming imposter syndrome is a continuous journey. You will need to keep working at it. However, if you are diligent and spend time becoming more confident with yourself, you will see massive results in your life. You can do it!
Find a deep reason to motivate you through the fear. The reason should be deep-seated and should relate to your goals or objectives.
Whether you are struggling with your appearances on video or want to become an even better speaker in front of the camera, you will get a lot from this discussion. Hope you enjoy it!
