Let's talk imposter syndrome

๐Ÿ‘‰ Do you feel uncomfortable and unworthy when people praise your work?

๐Ÿ‘‰ Is the fear of letting people down at work almost worse than the actual consequences of the failure?

๐Ÿ‘‰ Do you procrastinate on tasks youโ€™re unsure about?

๐Ÿ‘‰ Do you set your standards almost impossibly high in order to try and prove your worth to yourself and others?

๐Ÿ‘‰ Do you feel as if youโ€™ve not earned the job title or accolades you have, and you've got to where you are almost by luck or blagging it?

๐Ÿ‘‰ Do you feel guilty spending time on yourself instead of doing more work?

๐Ÿ‘‰Are you sensitive to criticism?

If you answered yes to any of these, it's likely you're suffering from imposter syndrome.

A recent study by KPMG found 75% of people have suffered with imposter syndrome in their careers, with women are more likely to be affected by it than men.

Google searches for imposter syndrome have also risen by 511% since 2016 ๐Ÿคฏ

The consequences of the syndrome can be far reaching.

For some, it can motivate them positively to reach their most awesome capabilities.

But for most it means anxiety and stress, over-compensating by working too hard, holding yourself back from amazing opportunities, and feeling like a fraud.

Imposter syndrome is a sign of low self-worth, and many of the clients I speak with suffer from it ( I have, too!).

In order to move past these feelings, you need to confront and work through the ingrained beliefs you have about not feeling good enough. A good coach can help you do that. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Doing so and putting your imposter syndrome to bed can have a massively positive affect on other areas of your life besides your career.

It can make you more resilient, give you a greater sense of wellbeing, and enable you to take things less personally, meaning relationships in your life will improve across the board.
