Scott Ingram: You’re listening to the Daily Sales Tips podcast and I’m your host, Scott Ingram. I had an experience recently that really showed me that imposter syndrome is a very real thing that affects almost everyone. This happens when you might have some advice or a suggestion to share with a larger audience, but think something along the lines of: “who am I to be sharing this?” You’d be surprised how many of the top 1% level performers that I’ve interviewed on the Sales Success Stories podcast who think this way, and if I’m honest it affects me as well. Heck, I didn’t really share many of my own thoughts for the first couple of years of hosting that podcast. Instead, I just focused on other people and their stories and just asked the questions. This show has forced me to share more and more of my own thoughts, mostly because I don’t have enough tips to exclusively share other people’s ideas, but I think it’s a good thing. It’s important to realize that we all have something of value to share and shouldn’t be afraid to share it. We may not be the foremost expert in the world on a particular topic, but even if the idea helps just one other person, isn’t it worth it? This process of getting your ideas out there and sharing the things that have helped you has the added benefit of clarifying your own thinking. Just like the best way to develop true mastery isn’t just to do something, but to teach others how to do it. So if you find yourself thinking you’re an imposter, know that it’s super common. You’re not alone, and you should share because it will help others and you’ll help yourself in the process.
There’s always an opportunity for you to step out of your comfort zone and do that here. Everyone is welcome to submit a tip to be featured on this show, and I challenge you to do just that. On the DailySales.Tips website there’s a link right at the top of every page with the instructions on how to “Submit a Sales Tip.” Will you do it? Even though you might feel like an imposter? Give it a shot. I’ll bet you can help someone, or more likely, lots of someones.
Then come back tomorrow for another great sales tip. Thanks for listening!
