Women have been taken hostage by IMPOSTER SYNDROME. And I am here to tell you, it is not your fault and you are certainly not alone!
Imposter syndrome is a crisis that I believe we collectively need to become more aware of and bring to light instead of suffering in silence.
Where did it all come from? Well, I believe it has been a part of our cultural and societal conditioning that we have inherited for generations. But that is a whole other discussion.
What I want to address right now is how do we calm the inner-critic that doesn’t allow us to accept a compliment for the good work we do. Or take the promotion as an indication that we deserved it and earned it.
Whatever it is for you, I want you to remember a few key things.
- Get the support that you need. When you have a tribe of like-minded people to help you remember why you are doing what you are doing, it helps to stay focused on all the good that you are doing in the world.
- Ditch the comparison! Stay in your own lane and stop looking at others’ success if it reminds you that you are not at their level. Remember, where you are in your journey belongs to you.
- Own your worth! You didn’t get this far by simply flying under the radar or by fluke. You worked hard to get to where you are, so value that!
- Track your progress and achievements. It’s easier to see the mountain we have to climb and think we have not made any progress. But if you look back and see the wins, the success, the milestones you made then that will be a motivation to keep pressing forward.
The power you hold in your heart and in your mind can outweigh the feelings of inadequacy and self-doubt. Be the woman that you have always wanted to be and don’t allow yourself to be taken down by feeling like a ‘fraud’. Because this world needs all of the good you have to give and it’s time you own your value.
