Imposter Syndrome: How to Deal With it as an Entrepreneur
Imposter Syndrome is real and affects even the highest achieving individuals.
Do you have a little voice in your head that says…
- You don’t know what you’re talking about
- You don’t have a degree in fashion design
- You don’t know what you’re doing
- There are other people who are way more qualified than you…
We’ve all been there. In fact even the best and the brightest still had imposter syndrome thoughts during the height of the careers. You might be surprised by these quotes:
“The exaggerated esteem in which my lifework is held makes me very ill at ease. I feel compelled to think of myself as an involuntary swindler.” – Albert Einstein
“I have written eleven books, but each time I think, ‘uh oh, they’re going to find out now. I’ve a run a game on everybody, and they’re going to find me out.’” – Maya Angelou
“There are still days when I wake up feeling like a fraud, not sure I should be where I am.” – Sheryl Sandberg
“I still believe that at any time the no-talent police will come and arrest me.” – Mike Meyers
