Overcoming Impostor Syndrome As You Pursue Your Calling

Overcoming Impostor Syndrome As You Pursue Your Calling

September 15, 2020

Are you feeling that God is calling you to do something big and scary in your life, but you’re resisting it big time? It feels like you’re not the right person for the job or that it’s a crazy idea or that you can’t possibly have the skills needed.

In today’s episode, we’re going to talk about how when God calls you to do something, you can take comfort in knowing that He’s with you through it all. He’s prepared you for this specific mission, and he called you out of all people for a reason. 

To help with impostor syndrome, we’re going to take a look at the story of Moses and the burning bush in a new light.  From this story, we can see how to take comfort even when we’re doubting our abilities to do what we know we’re being called to do. 

 

The story for this episode comes from Exodus 3:1 - 4:17 NLT

 

Episode Highlights: 

  • Moses denies God’s call on his life
  • God assures Moses over and over
  • When God chooses someone, He really means that person is the one. There’s not a replacement person for the job. 
  • Amazing things happen when you listen to the calling from God. Overcoming the fear and doubt is part of the process. On the other side is a closer connection with God and being able to see how God uses your obedience for good. 
  • If God is calling you, he has prepared you and He is with you. He already knows the outcome. You just have to act. 

 

I hope this look at this story about Moses encourages you as you come up against imposter syndrome, doubt and fear as you hear God nudging you to pivot in your life.

Overcoming Fear to Get Unstuck

August 12, 2020

Fear is probably the biggest emotion getting in the way of you taking action toward your dream of being an entrepreneur. You feel like you desperately want this life you envision for yourself, one where you’ve got more time and are home with your kids, yet you aren’t taking the actions you know you need to to make it happen. That’s fear. 

 

And If you aren’t equipped to recognize it and overcome it, then it can keep you stuck. Always wishing and never actually doing. 

 

In this episode, I’m going to share how fear came into play as I was leaving my job to be an entrepreneur and tips for how you can identify and overcome your own fears to get unstuck. 

Episode Highlights: 

  • How fear showed up for me as I started my entrepreneurial journey

When God Asks You to Pivot From Career Woman to Mom Entrepreneur

When God Asks You to Pivot From Career Woman to Mom Entrepreneur

August 11, 2020

Are you a mom feeling this urge to completely pivot your whole career plan to be a work at home mom? It feels like a crazy idea but at the same time, you desperately want to do it. 

But how? And should you really make that kind of a bold move? 

I mean, what would people think after you’ve worked so hard on your career? 

I’m here to tell you that while yes, it’s a little bit crazy, it’s also one of the best things you’ll ever do. 

This urge to quit your job and be home with your kids isn’t random. God is putting that on your heart and calling you to pivot. 

And He doesn’t always ask us to pivot in a logical way that has a clear path. 

In fact, most of the time it isn’t like that at all. 

In this episode, I’m going to share some about my story and how I went from getting my PhD in cancer biology to quitting my job to be home with my son. It wasn’t an easy transition, but I figured it out. I’ll talk about the fears and obstacles I had to overcome to make it happen including getting past the shame and guilt of what others might think.

 

Episode Highlights: 

  • Welcome to the Mama with a Calling podcast
  • How this podcast is going to help you
  • My story from working mom to mom entrepreneur
  • How God doesn’t just call anyone to do this

 

I hope my story encourages you to keep making steps toward your calling.
