Fighting imposter syndrome?

🔸Accept that you're not alone
🔸Stop comparing yourself to others
🔸Realize that nobody knows anything well enough.
🔸Build a growth mindset
🔸Document your Progress
🔸Figure out your best learning patterns


Think you’re unqualified for the work you do? Or you feel like a fraud and you'll be caught soon?
It’s called imposter syndrome and here are a few tips to how to handle it.

You're not the first to experience this and definitely not the last, even folks who are experienced in the career you're currently in faced this and some still.

The thing with imposter syndrome is that you’re comparing what you know to what you think other people know. You actually don’t see other people struggles and you feel they know better. 😔
Don't try to be someone else other than yourself. Being you is the only thing that could make you stand out in the crowd. People can spot when someone is being genuinely themselves or not. Try to get to where you want by adding your own character, personality, and touch. 👌
Most of us don't know anything "enough". There is always something new coming up, so in order to succeed in this field you need to be a good learner and continuously keep learning.
So don't feel sad about now knowing anything fully — almost nobody does. 💙
The Growth Mindset simply means having the mindset that your talents, skills or strength can be developed over time. It revolves around the belief that you can improve intelligence, talents, ability and performance.
The fact that you are not getting it perfectly now, does not mean you should quit, it only means you should be consistent and improve with practice and good strategies.
The Growth Mindset is not focused on caring about success or achievements, but rather learning. Learning is a process, you just need to keep moving!

"When learning especially something new, the main goal should not be finishing but rather learning." ❤
Have a portfolio of successes and regularly reflect on them. This can help remind you of how far you’ve come and how good you really are.
Finally Learn how to Learn. This process is different for everyone, find out what patterns work best for you, combine them if the need be and ensure you actually learn.
If you love what you do, create a blog and share what you know. It might take time before it gets the attention you want, but good work does not go unnoticed
We all live upon a continuum and consistent self-assessment helps us become the person we want to be. 👌
