Hey Kid! You Have No Idea What You Are Doing.

Written by chicceo Published in

Almost every day as I strut (yes, I strut, you should too!) into my office, I look over my shoulder waiting for someone to call this out to me.

When I got my first grown up job as the Advertising Manager of a casino in Southern California, I literally squeezed my eyes shut walking into work because I was certain someone was going to call me out. At 33, I thought for sure I'd be over this, but I'm still looking over my shoulder waiting for someone to call me on it. 
 
If you don't have this issue, please tell me your secret! For the most part, a lot of us tend to feel like we're going to get called out at any moment. 
 
Barbara Corcoran, founder of the Corcoran Group and a Shark on ABC's Shark Tank, describes a meeting she had with Donald Trump. The entire elevator ride up to his office she repeated to herself, "I deserve to be here, I deserve to be here, I deserve to be here." My meetings may not be with Donald Trump (yet) but I repeat this to myself when I start to feel a little overwhelmed.
 
We must convince ourselves that we "deserve to be there." I deserve to be here! I DESERVE TO BE HERE. 
 
I'm here - join me

Thank you for this. I completely know this feeling. In fact, I need to remind myself to convince myself that I DESERVE TO BE HERE!

All the best,
