In this episode, join me and my special guest Sonya Reece as we tackle dealing with imposter syndrome — something all creatives face. You'll learn how to reframe the thoughts that come creeping in unwanted, discover tips for silencing the gremlins, and create new thoughts to help you see what a creative powerhouse you can be (and probably already have been)!
Back in October of 2020, I was honored to pair up with ADPList and Creative Mornings San Francisco and give this Field Trip workshop. It was the first time I had shared any of the trauma I experienced as a child. Based on the comments I received privately afterwards, it struck a chord. I'm so happy to be able to show up in service to others in this way.

Episode 001 is a recording of a live online workshop Coach Cami led with over 125 ADPList participants. Join in to discover and put in writing your own big, juicy life goals. You'll also gain perspective on what you've accomplished thus far, map out baby steps for progress toward your goals, and grow confidence for the future. Get comfy, grab some paper and something to write with, and prepare to dive deep.
What's your default way of thinking? It's probably not "positivity creates amazing realities." After childhood, we're wired for skepticism. It takes some serious practice to see that our healing operating system can be accessed only by quieting the inner critic's voice and trusting in your gut and your heart.
Here is an excerpt from You Are the Placebo by Joe Dispenza…
"If you repeat or maintain certain attitudes long enough and you string those attitudes together, that's how you create a belief. A belief is just an extended state of being — essentially, beliefs are thoughts and feelings (attitudes) that you keep thinking and feeling over and over again until you hardwire them into your brain and emotionally condition them into your body. You could say that you become addicted to them, which is why it's so hard to change them and why it doesn't feel good on a gut level when they're challenged. Because experiences are neurologically etched into your brain (causing you to think) and chemically embodied as emotions (causing you to feel), most of your beliefs are based on past memories."
What beliefs are you carrying around with you that no longer serve you? Ask your head, heart and gut (all separately) where the hangup is and how to move past it. You may be surprised to hear what your body has to say.
Thanks for reading!
Throughout my life, and 2020 specifically, I've been collecting phrases and sayings, and even single words, that seem to trigger the best in me. They remind me who I want to become. And from what I've read, both in Personality Isn't Permanent and You Are the Placebo, residing in the emotion of your future self is pretty damned important to actually making those big goals happen. The other awesome thing that happens when you solidly visualize who you want to be: you get there faster!!
So I've made a list of these to help me with this:
