We have such a short-term memory when it comes to achievement. We easily forget all that we have done and allow self-doubt and fear to creep back in.
My guest today is fictional author Lauren Sams, and we discuss this notion, or otherwise known as impostor syndrome—the feeling that you’re not good enough or worthy of your accomplishment and worry that you’re going to be exposed as a fraud.
In this episode, Lauren shares her story about becoming a published author and growing through rejection, the selflessness that motherhood brings, and the importance of teaching our children to choose work they love.
We also discuss the philosophy of minimalism and how it has less to do with the amount of things you own and more about what you value in life. We also touch on being optimistic through adversity, and positively reframing the story we tell ourselves.
Like all parents, Lauren has moments where she feels crazy, busy, guilty, but she is mindful of being completely present when she is with her children. Something, I am sure we could all try to do more often.
I hope you enjoy x
