Impostor syndrome - when you don't think you're good enough

Simplero hero  (9)

Too often have I heard from intelligent, competent people (sadly usually women) that they don't feel good enough. That they suffer from impostor syndrome. That they're afraid to 'found out'. It breaks my heart. 

So here are 10 things you can do for yourself if you don't feel you're enough. 

But believe me: You are!

  1. Self-reflection: Take some time to reflect on your strengths and accomplishments. Write them down, and review them regularly to remind yourself of your abilities.

  2. Gratitude journal: Keep a journal where you write down three things you're grateful for every day. This can help shift your focus from what you lack to what you have.

  3. Affirmations: Write down positive affirmations about yourself and repeat them to yourself regularly. This can help you reprogram negative self-talk.

  4. Talk to others: Talk to people you trust about your feelings of impostor syndrome. They can help provide support and perspective.

  5. Celebrate small wins: Instead of only focusing on big goals, celebrate the small milestones along the way. This can help you recognize your progress and feel more confident.

  6. Visualize success: Imagine yourself succeeding in your goals. Visualization can help boost your confidence and motivation.

  7. Take action: Sometimes the best way to combat impostor syndrome is to take action despite your fears. Doing something outside of your comfort zone can help build confidence.

  8. Recognize it's okay to make mistakes: Nobody is perfect, and everyone makes mistakes. Accept that mistakes are a natural part of the learning process and don't beat yourself up over them.

  9. Seek feedback: Ask for feedback from others on your work. This can help you gain perspective and identify areas for improvement.

  10. Practice self-care: Taking care of yourself physically, emotionally, and mentally can help you feel more confident and resilient in the face of impostor syndrome. This could involve exercise, meditation, or engaging in activities you enjoy.
