Those are the exact words I often hear running through my head.
It may sound strange to you, but I’d never heard of the term impostor syndrome until last week when I decided to load a presentation by Chris Lema into the Swift app for a listen.
If you’ve haven’t heard of it before or are fuzzy on what impostor syndrome is, it’s thinking you aren’t smart enough, good enough, __fill-in-the-blanks__ enough for whatever you are doing right now. That could be in your current job, for a project or working on your own business.
You feel like you’re just a faker, you’re not really sure what you’re doing and you feel guilty when you sell courses and products that you think make it seem like you have it together.
Ever feel that way? Ever deflect when people pay you a compliment? Ever feel like one day you’ll be ‘found out’ how little you know?
Well congratulations! You’re suffering from the impostor syndrome. So do I. Impostor syndrome can put a stranglehold on your business and personal growth. This video from Chris is made just for us. I’m comforted by the thought that even someone like him who’s further along than me, suffer from it and thankful for his tips on how to break free.
