What Does It Mean To “Be Seen”?
To start off our conversation, Jen shared her personal story of being on a TV show and feeling like she was living a lie. She realized that she was being seen as an inauthentic version of herself just to please others.
This led her to a severe depression and a journey of self-discovery. Jen’s mission now is to help people be seen for who they truly are and attract loyal customers and followers.
So, what does it mean to “be seen”? Well, in Jen’s words: it always starts with seeing YOURSELF and putting yourself out there.
Jen shared her own struggles with launching her book and the fear and imposter syndrome that come with it. (I’ve been there!)
She emphasized the importance of being open and honest about these challenges, as it’s easy to compare ourselves to others and think they have it all figured out. It’s okay to feel the fear and discomfort, but it’s crucial to keep moving forward and celebrating your progress.
The Impact of Imposter Syndrome
Imposter syndrome is a common struggle, especially for business owners, no matter how successful you may be. If you’re experiencing imposter syndrome, you’re not alone — Jen and I have BOTH been there!
The key is to recognize that imposter syndrome is just fear disguising itself. A powerful tool Jen calls the “Badass List” is when you make a list of all the moments in your life where you felt amazing about yourself.
Reading this list out loud can remind you of your worth and boost your confidence… and allow you to truly “be seen.”
Cultivating Confidence And Envisioning Your Future
Something that was so fascinating to me was when Jen brought up the topic of “time travel.” In this context, Jen explained that time travel is about reprogramming your subconscious to feel and believe in the future version of yourself that you want to become.
By practicing feeling those future emotions now, you attract opportunities and take actions that align with your desired future. It’s about creating your own reality and believing in your ability to achieve your goals.
Jen also shared her confidence continuum, which is all about taking action with fear present. Confidence is built through consistently sticking to the commitments you make with yourself. It’s not about being 100% confident all the time, but rather being at 51% more often than not.
Each time you take action and follow through, you add a coin to your confidence bank. It’s a process of building self-trust and celebrating your wins, no matter how small.
