is Excited to Announce the Launch of our First Podcast
Fear of Failure, Fear of Success, The Impostor Syndrome are fears that affect our success. Do you suffer from these? I wrote the speech linked here for my 10th Speech in the Competent Communicator manual for Toastmasters International. I am a member of a company Toastmasters Club. Completing the CC as it is called is a big step for me.
Creating and launching the Goal Getting Podcast has been exciting and I have put a log of hard work in getting this launched. I have achieved my goal that I set. However, it wasn’t easy. It should have been easier this time around. I did a podcast back in 2004. It didn’t take me very long to get it up and running.
What made it hard this time? It wasn’t the process. It is easier, now, to get a podcast up and running. What has been hard is Fear. I have been fighting the Impostor Syndrome big time! What is Impostor Syndrome? It is when you have that nagging voice in side your mind saying things like:
“Your not good enough to do a podcast!” Who do you think you are, You don’t even have a college degree?” “Who do you think will listen to you?”
These negative, limiting beliefs, can derail you while you are trying to achieve your goals. I know, I fought it getting the podcast up. I participated in a Q&A with Joel Boggess of Relaunch Podcast. I was talking about what was the hardest thing to get done as a new podcaster that hasn’t launched. While talking with him and his wife Pei, he caught me off guard.
“I hear the Impostor in you talking…., You need to kick him out of your house and to the curb.”
When I finished talking to them, I realized they were right. I kicked the Impostor to the curb that day and went about Doing What Needed To Get Done, to launch the Goal Getting Podcast.
