You might notice that this was a 2012 post. Doesn’t matter. Still as relevant today.
Lots of good tips here as most of us at some time or another–especially as we leave our comfort zones–face impostor syndrome.
A quote from Naomi Osaka: “…internally I think I’m never good enough. I’ve never told myself that I’ve done a good job but I do know I constantly tell myself that I suck or I could do better … Every time a new opportunity arises my first thought is, ‘wow, why me?’ ”
Other highlights from this piece by Julianne McShane:
“Part of those celebrations will include praising small wins, Osaka wrote, like recognizing when she wakes up and doesn’t procrastinate.”
“…think about where their impostor system stems from — and often, that’s childhood and family dynamics…”
Best of luck, side hustlers. You ARE good enough!
