It is not you, it is the Impostor Syndrome

It’s hard to be your own biggest fan, where everyone else seems more confident than yourself and their success is simply because they are better suited for life with its challenges while not being able myself ever seem will get anywhere near what was expected from me or anyone else who has this happenings
In some ways it feels as if all those people telling us “you’re great” were speaking through gritted teeth until finally releasing whatever frustration had been pent-up inside them since childhood When we hear these words come out our ears, but at least now I know why – it is not you, it is the Impostor Syndrome

What is the Impostor Syndrome?

As an entrepreneur or anything really, you’re bound to face a lot of challenges. One of the most common is impostor syndrome, which is when you feel like you’re not good enough or qualified to do something. It can be a really tough thing to overcome, but it’s definitely possible.

What can you do?

  • First, recognize that impostor syndrome is normal. Just because you feel like an impostor doesn’t mean you are one. A lot of people feel this way at some point in their lives.
  • Second, don’t compare yourself to others. Everyone has their own unique skills and talents. Just because someone else is successful doesn’t mean you can’t be, too.
  • Third, focus on your accomplishments. When you’re feeling down about yourself, take a step back and look at all the things you’ve achieved. This will help you see that you are capable of great things.
  • Finally, don’t be afraid to ask for help. We all need a little assistance from time to time. Asking for help doesn’t make you any less capable or qualified.


If you experience the impostor syndrome, know that you are not alone. Many successful entrepreneurs have dealt with these feelings at some point in their careers. The best thing you can do is to keep moving forward and focus on your goals. Remember that success is relative, and it’s important to celebrate each victory, no matter how small. We hope this article has helped give you a better understanding of the impostor syndrome and provided some tips for dealing with it. Are there any techniques that work particularly well for you?
