How to deal with Imposter Syndrome

What is Imposter Syndrome?

 

If you're feeling like you don't deserve to be where you are, there's a good chance it's because of imposter syndrome.

Imposter syndrome is the feeling that you're not as good at your job as other people, and it's often paired with low self-esteem and a lack of confidence in your abilities. It can make it difficult to take risks or ask for help from others, which can make you feel like a fraud.

 

But there are ways to combat imposter syndrome so that it doesn't hold you back from reaching your full potential!

Impostor syndrome is a real thing, and it's something you can combat in the workplace. Luckily, there are ways to do so.

 

The first step is to realize that you're not alone. There are others out there who feel like they don't belong or don't have what it takes to be successful.

 

The second step is to acknowledge that impostor syndrome is not your fault—it's a societal issue that has been defined by our experiences and the way we've been taught to think about ourselves. In other words, it's not your fault!

 

The third step is to learn from those around you who do excel at their jobs—and maybe even make yourself available for advice or mentoring if you're looking for help getting started on the right track.

 

If you've ever found yourself feeling like a fraud, you're not alone. Imposter syndrome is a common feeling that can plague any successful person in the workplace. However, the tips above will help to combat it:
