The Impostor Syndrome

Most of us at one time or another have been compared to someone else. Often times the people doing the comparing have our best interests in mind, however, what about the damage we do when we’re the ones comparing ourselves to others? We may not always fit in, but that’s the beauty of it all.

Key Takeaways:

  • The feeling of being a fraud is so common it has a name which is β€œThe Imposter Syndrome.”
  • What holds us back from being more confident at work is often a sense that we are fundamentally different from other people.
  • People who feel the Imposter Syndrome can become anxious, stressed, and even go into depression.

“What holds us back from being more confident at work is often a sense that we are fundamentally different from those who succeed. We suffer – needlessly – from The Impostor Syndrome.”
