Join us in VitaminR’s kick off event to learn how to hack your Impostor Syndrome as our experts share with us strategies to train your brain for optimal outcomes, build confidence and take action.
We will explore Improv, Authentic Relating, Meditation and Movement modalities to move through stuck or procrastination patterns into confident, inspired actions that make a difference!
You have the credentials, and a lifetime of experience, but you still feel like it’s not enough. You think, just ONE more class or 10 more hours of this new training will do it. This might be a manifestation of Impostor Syndrome, a psychological pattern in which an individual doubts their accomplishments and has a persistent internalized fear of being exposed as a “fraud.” Join us to learn how to hack your Impostor Syndrome as our experts share with us strategies to train your brain to move from procrastination patterns into confident, inspired actions!
We’ll dive deep into the brain with Dr. Nikolai Chapochnikov, to take a look at:
- What we “gain” at the subconscious level by being stuck
- What the Fear Network in the brain is and how it takes hold of our minds and bodies
- What stops us from acting right away when we have a brilliant idea
- Becoming aware of things that look like action but are actually “stuck” behaviors
- The difference between action and non-action strategies
