Facebook, Sheryl Sandberg, openly admits: “There are still days when I wake up feeling like a fraud, not sure I should be where I am.”The term imposter syndrome relates to self-doubt and the fear of being discovered as a fraud.
Typically, it’s about career insecurity, but you could worry you aren’t good enough to fulfill roles like being a parent or student too.People with imposter syndrome imagine others will find out they’re incompetent and the humiliation will be tantamount to social death.
They think they’re viewed as more capable than they are and don’t deserve their status. The thought of being outed mortifies them. If you suffer from imposter syndrome, a reality check can help you gain perspective.Reign in your doubt.
