AGL 007: Overcoming Fear, Anxiety, and the Impostor Syndrome


We all are afraid of something.  

Being a leader demands bravery. In this episode I talk about getting over FEAR (False Evidence Appearing Real). I list and explain these 4 steps for dealing with fear:

  1. Play it out. What’s the worse that can happen?
  2. What’s the likelihood of that thing happening?
  3. How can you reduce the likelihood of that happening?
  4. If the worse happens, how can you recover?

We need to understand that everyone deals with fear.  The most successful people just “do it anyway.”

Getting over the imposter Syndrome.  Check out this article from StartupBros on getting over.  I pulled a few examples from it in this episode.
