The Impossible Imposter

Ever felt like you weren’t good enough? Like you didn’t deserve the good things happening to you?

There’s a term for this, and it’s called: Imposter Syndrome.

This is the feeling that you are not good enough, and it wreaks havoc on your life.

Thousands of people suffer from imposter syndrome every single day and don’t even know it. 

I personally have battled imposter syndrome, as have many of my friends. 

And it’s crazy because we are all successful in our own right.

So why can’t we embrace that success?

Developed in the 1970s by two prominent psychologists, Dr. Pauline Rose Clance and Suzanne Imes, Imposter Syndrome is a psychological phenomenon experienced by people who are unable to celebrate their wins. 

I know it’s easier said than done, but honestly – we all really are just winging it. Take a deep breath – you’re doing great. You belong.
