3 strategies to transform imposter syndrome [Wise Wednesdays (the Summer Shorts ☀️)]

I didn’t attend my PhD graduation.

I didn’t feel it was that big a deal.

Now I know that PhDs can exacerbate imposter syndrome and take a serious toll on self-esteem. I can’t help but wonder if that’s why I passed up the opportunity to celebrate mine…

Imposter syndrome affects 70% of us at one time or another and is particularly common among high achievers and women.

3 signs to look out for indicating that you may have imposter syndrome are:

✋ You regularly feel that you’re not good enough.

✋ You like approval but can’t take a compliment.

✋ You’re speechless when asked to talk about your achievements or strengths.

So today, let's pause and choose to see imposter syndrome for what it truly is: a cluster of false beliefs.

If you experience these regularly, take a deep breath and know that it’s not you. It’s your conditioning!

In my video, I talk about 3 strategies you can try to break the pattern and overcome imposter syndrome.

Have a great week,
