Have you ever felt your biggest accomplishment was out of your hands? That the only reason you succeeded was because of a lucky break, or being in the “right place right time”? And when you do achieve something you fear that people will find out that you don’t deserve all the accolades, that you have to keep up a “front” so people don’t realize that you are actually not as capable as people think you are?
If you ever have any of these moments you are not alone. A lot of highly ambitious and successful people suffer from imposter syndrome. Imposter syndrome is when a person has a series of thoughts of a deep-rooted fear of being exposed as a “fraud” pertaining to their achievements.
Here are three ways to overcome imposter syndrome:
Objectively think about your achievements. When you take the emotion out of it you can rationally see how amazing they are and how amazing you are..
Don’t get stuck in your head. Your imagination can be the most freeing place or your prison, sometimes you have to get out of your own head.
You are enough. Remember you are enough. What you do is enough. Do not compare yourself to anyone else, you are running a race all by yourself; so don’t use comparison of others to make you think otherwise.
Imposter syndrome can be difficult to overcome; but day by day remember these keys so you can realize that you are NOT a imposter. That you are a beautiful ambitious queen. It is not luck, timing or coincidence; you worked HARD to get what you want.
