“There’s no use talking about the problem unless you talk about the solution.” —Betty Williams.

“To solve any problem, here are three questions to ask yourself: First, what could I do? Second, what could I read? And third, who could I ask?” —Jim Rohn

Go solve a problem today.
And if you stretch yourself, you might just create one or two others, but what the heck. You’re now armed with these quotes to solve those, as well.

Side Hustle Spark 291: Overcome impostor syndrome

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!
