Y’all, this is how I feel about all the ideas around and in my brain right now... I have so many and I’m so excited about them!
BUT, I’m finding that I don’t have enough time to put into them OR I just second-guess the idea and put it off.
Y’all, what is about creatives and entrepreneurs? I’m reading more and more about this thing called imposter syndrome and it’s real!
Anyone else struggle with this? How do you overcome it and what methods do you use?
A Case of the Imposter Syndrome is Legit
Wikipedia's definition is this... " (also known as impostor phenomenon, impostorism, fraud syndrome or the impostor experience) is a psychological pattern in which an individual doubts their accomplishments and has a persistent internalized fear of being exposed as a "fraud"."
Speaker and expert Valerie Young, author of The Secret Thoughts of Successful Women: Why Capable People Suffer From the Imposter Syndrome and How to Thrive in Spite of It says,
"While the impostor syndrome is not unique to women, women are more apt to agonize over tiny mistakes, see even constructive criticism as evidence of their shortcomings, and chalk up their accomplishments to luck rather than skill. They often unconsciously overcompensate with crippling perfectionism, over preparation, maintaining a lower profile, withholding their talents and opinions, or never finishing important projects."
