Beating Imposter Syndrome

Impostor syndrome is a very real fear for many people. I've faced it and still do. In the times I've successfully battled feeling like an imposter I think I've come away with these coping mechanisms:

  1. Talk about what I know (authenticity)
  2. Share what I've learned, and admit I'm a work-in-progress (transparency)
  3. Express my enthusiasm for learning a subject and encourage others to join (leadership)
  4. Find the needful audience who will benefit from my knowledge (service)
  5. Understand I don't own this information - the universe does (humility)

How do you battle feeling like an impostor? Any success story you're willing to share? Please drop me a message.

Setting Expectations

  • ✅ I don't know as much as I think I do.
  • ✅ I don't know as much as you need me to.

Hurray! I think I just beat impostor syndrome! 😀
