Imposter Syndrome, is that niggling voice in your head that keeps telling you that you’re not good enough.
If you feel like an imposter, you’re not alone, and powerful the feeling may be, you CAN fight back. You CAN rewrite your negative thought patterns, and eliminate the self-sabotaging habits, beliefs and behaviours that are holding you back from the life you truly deserve.
Imposter syndrome isn’t a new idea. It was first identified by Suzanna Imes and Pauline Clance in 1975, and it is strongly associated with high achieving women. If you’re experiencing Imposter Syndrome, you are likely to be highly motivated and an overachiever but despite your success, you experience almost constant anxiety.
Here are 8 strategies to help you deal with Imposter Syndrome:
- Be kind to yourself
- Identify your skills and strengths
- Challenge your negative thoughts
- Stop comparing yourself to others
- Surround yourself with positive people
- Name the voice and tell it to go away
- Recognise your thoughts aren’t facts
- Share your feelings with others
