I can’t believe it’s taken 48 years of imposter syndrome to realise how awesome I am
I started writing something and I can’t believe that I still have imposter syndrome!
I was doing a brain dump of some of the projects I've managed, been part of, people I've worked with and experiences I've had. I stopped myself in my tracks...
'Why on earth do I doubt myself? This list is epic. I'd work with me.'
Tall poppy syndrome is a pain in the arse and does a damn fine job of stopping us from tooting our own trumpet. Those days are done.
I'll start with two
1. My ultimate highlight. Working with Oprah. I walked on stage (backward) with Oprah and Bono at a U2 concert ...while completely focused on the team so didn’t realise what I’d done until later. I coordinated and supported camera and sound crew, was the conduit between the crew on the ground and post production. Edited footage on the fly that was used in the show, officially used my phone as a back-up camera in one instance and so much more.
2. I podium'd at a mountain bike race called Linger and Die (it was as hard as the name suggests). While I didn't complete the full distance, both the organisers and other competitors believed I deserved that 3rd place. I freaking enjoyed that moment with those epic riders.
I want to hear about some of the amazing things you've done. Perhaps things you think are mundane but to me, and others would sound epic!
Message me if you'd like to begin to 'moon' that tall poppy syndrome with your arse and kick it to the curb.
