Having Imposter Syndrome (or what is also known as the ego mind), was one of the motivators that led me to Life Coaching in Johannesburg.  It causes overthinking and overanalysing, which eventually leads you into a deep dark tunnel.

If you are tired of constantly creating problems for yourself, then continue reading. It’s time to break free from this cycle and embrace a more positive, fulfilling life.

Here are nine easy steps to help you stop creating unnecessary problems:

  1. Practice Mindfulness: Start by being mindful of your thoughts which are mostly from the Imposter/Ego Mind. Keep a journal to track your thoughts throughout the day. This will help you identify patterns and negative thought loops that may be causing problems.
  2. Acknowledge Your Emotions: Alongside your thoughts, note down your emotions in your journal. Understanding your emotions can help you gain insight into why certain thoughts arise and how they affect your behavior.
  3. Break the Cycle of Self-Talk: Don’t get caught up in negative self-talk which is ultimately the imposter/ego mind. Eckhart Tolle provides good insights into the imposter/ego mind. Instead of engaging with these thoughts, observe them without judgment and let them pass. Dwelling on negative thoughts only reinforces them.
  4. Craft a New Story For Yourself: Create a positive story for yourself. Visualize how you want your day to unfold and focus on manifesting that reality. By shifting your perspective, you can attract more positivity into your life.
  5. Embrace Creativity: Inject creativity into every aspect of your life. Whether it’s through art, music, or problem-solving, tapping into your creative side can help you break free from stagnation and find new solutions to old problems.
  6. Use Affirmations: Develop at least three affirmations that resonate with you and repeat them daily with conviction. Affirmations can help reprogram your subconscious mind and reinforce positive beliefs about yourself.
  7. Focus on Self-Growth: Stop worrying about other people’s problems and focus on your own growth. Remember, no one else will prioritize your well-being for you. Cultivate self-worth from within and strive to become the best version of yourself.
  8. Who do you choose to be:  From your journal, review if this is who you choose to be?  If not, then make the change for yourself to be the person you choose to be.
  9. Stop doing things to hurt people, it will come back to you:  The fundamental principle of karma is that every action we perform generates a force of energy that returns to us in some form. This could be in the same lifetime or in future lifetimes, depending on the belief system. Essentially, it’s the idea that what goes around comes around.

By following these nine steps, you can take control of your thoughts, emotions, and actions, leading to a happier, more fulfilling life free from self-imposed problems. Remember, change takes time and effort, so be patient and kind to yourself as you embark on this journey of self-discovery and growth.
