Yes, I deleted that manuscript.
Why? Because I had been so busy working on my book that I had pushed down the fears that were secretly waking me up at 3am - the ones I didn't feel I could tell anyone about.
And they needed clearing out, before the book could be published. I left it until the 11th hour. My family says I wasn't very nice to be around that night.
I was walking proof that 'taking action to avoid the fear' and 'fake it till you make it' are unreliable success strategies.
Once I realised it was 'just' imposter syndrome at play, I did my stuff, cleared the block and found a hidden copy of the manuscript on my back-up-back-up drive the next day. The rest, as they say, is history.
Whether you're writing a blog post or crafting your best-seller, I'd love to help you to feel confident, excited and inspired by your journey, rather than secretly terrified. And it's much easier than you might think, when you know how.
And that's exactly what I'd love to share with you.
Learn how to spot the early warning signs of Imposter Syndrome, before it starts yelling at you. Plus you'll get my near-instant ABC process for pressing 'pause' on negative self-talk.
Learn the 'magic question' from the mentoring process I would use if we were working together, one-to-one, on Imposter Syndrome, self-doubt and building your confidence as an author.
Practical inspiration to set you free from your fear of rejection - and even haters and trolls. We can't get rid of them, but we can choose whether or not to give them our power.
Why positive affirmations can be the slowest route to retraining your brain. Plus you'll use your answers from previous days to create affirmations that work for you, at lightening speed.
The techniques in this final step tie everything together. You'll finish with an action plan to ditch Imposter Syndrome as an author, and you will already have made great progress towards your goals.
You'll also get a five-minute technique I love to use if Imposter Syndrome strikes when I least have time to handle it (like being interviewed live, on air, in front of a million people), when there's no time for navel-gazing.
I want to make Imposter Syndrome For Authors as accessible as possible, whilst still giving you the quality of course and support you deserve. So this five-step programme is just £197.
Doing this one-to-one with me would be a significant 4-figure investment. But I want to help as many authors as possible to ditch Imposter Syndrome - once and for all.
When you think about the difference it could make for you, your Big Message, your audience and your business, I hope you'll agree that's excellent value.
I want to make sure you're happy with this course. So try it on for size for 30 days and if it hasn't helped you, I'll give you a full refund - with no hard feelings.
BUT it's not a 'brown banana' guarantee - I will ask that you have actually tried the techniques out. After all, you wouldn't take a banana back to the supermarket because you forgot to eat it and it went brown!
