We’ve all felt it – that lingering worry that our skill set isn’t strong enough, perhaps our presentation wasn’t sharp enough, or we don’t deserve our title/salary/fill in the blank bull$hit.
Facing imposter syndrome head-on is a helpful exercise to let go of that nagging weight that’s stopping us from reaching our full potential.
I reached out to some amazing women whom I admire to help us all do a bit of perspective setting. Here’s what they had to say:
“Surround yourself w/ folks who know you, love you, & will incessantly remind you of your strengths.” Christy O’Shoney (@christyoshoney)
“Don’t get psyched out about what other people are doing.” Shonali Burke (@Shonali)
“Everyone has it. That said: don’t let the inner voice win. Stuff it down and believe in you. Fake it til you feel it.” Tammy Gordon (@Tammy)
“You have to just keep at it. Don’t listen to voice in your head.” Gini Dietrich (@ginidietrich)
