Projection is a real thing and when someone projects their own fears onto another person, it can feel weighty. As host Catenya McHenry discusses in this episode, projection happens for many reasons. There are times when people are told by another individual, 'you can't do that, or you won't be able to make that happen,' It's not because they think you don't have the ability — they know you're able and capable and that's what scares them. The doubter is afraid of your success, afraid that you'll somehow be better than them, and afraid that you will outshine them. They are sometimes intimidated by your confidence. What they don't realize is that their doubt is your motivator to be greater, to do the thing they told you that you couldn't. In many cases their projection has less to do with you and more to do with their insecurities — and fears.
