Do You Have Imposter Syndrome?
Most people experience moments of self-doubt, and that’s normal; but when temporary feelings of negativity become constant, and you don’t feel worthy of titles and achievements that you’ve earned, it could be imposter syndrome.
Imposter syndrome is a psychological pattern of self-doubt. Individuals with imposter syndrome doubt personal abilities and accomplishments and exhibit a persistent internalized fear of being exposed as a “fraud.” In other words, this phenomenon reflects a belief that one is inadequate and incompetent despite evidence that proves otherwise.
Do you lack self-confidence? Do you have negative thoughts about yourself running through your head telling you, ‘I can’t do this’ or that you don’t belong? Does your mind replay mistakes you’ve made no matter how insignificant or long ago they occurred?
If this sounds familiar, you might be part of the 70 percent of people who have experienced imposter syndrome.
Join me for Facing Imposter Syndrome Focus Group, and together, in a safe group setting, we’ll work toward gaining your confidence back so that you can live your best life!

Don’t Let Imposter Syndrome Hold You Back
There is no single answer as to why people experience imposter syndrome. Some experts pin it on personality traits, others focus on childhood memories or behavioral causes. Factors outside of a person, such as their environment or institutionalized discrimination, can also play a significant role in the development of imposter feelings. Regardless of what causes those thoughts, there are ways to work through them.
Imposter syndrome only needs to be a temporary feeling - you are (and will be) able to shake it off for good!
When you’re dealing with the constant pressure to prove yourself or living with the fear that you’ll be ‘found out’ at any moment for the ‘fraud’ that you are, you’re hindering opportunities that could lead you to great things. Additionally, you're missing out on celebrating current achievements.
