    How to embody self-confidence

    How to embody self-confidence

    Cass explains why 'mindset' approaches to overcoming self-doubt and imposter syndrome are limited and won't achieve a lasting transformation and what you need to do instead.  She shares how imposter syndrome is an activation of your body's threat response triggered by a fear of judgement and rejection.

    She also explains that self-criticism can perpetuate imposter syndrome by keeping you stuck in a threat response, and the importance of self-acceptance and forgiveness, allowing you to return to a state of emotional safety.
