Unmasking Impostor Syndrome
Unmask Impostor Syndrome - and Unmask yourself
First - take a sneaky peek behind the curtain - just click and I will appear - and give you a little more on the symptoms of this thing called Impostor Syndrome.
It is a feeling - a bit like Alice in Wonderland felt when she went down that rabbit hole - not quite right!
The feeling results in behaviours which result in feelings which result in behaviours - yes - the Impostor Syndrome Cycle. Break it by doing some feelings forensics.
Knowledge leads to self-awareness - which leads to you being able to stop the cycle before it stops you.
Impostor syndrome (original research by Clance & Imes - 1970s - when it was called Impostor phenomenon) is an irrational and pervasive feeling of self-doubt. A sense that you are getting away with it - because really you are a fraud and you will be found out soon! Putting success down to luck rather than your skills. Comparing yourself to others and having a sense that everyone else has got it together - and they will realise that you haven't.... etc etc....
It is a joy sapping feeling and can lead to burn out and missed opportunities - so it needs sorting. First step - awareness. No - first step - sign up for the weekly newsletter - I take a symptom each week and discuss in a short video - then a quote and a challenge - short and sweet.
