Imposter Syndrome

“It’s only a matter of time until I’m called out. I’m just a fraud.”

“It’s a fluke that I got this job interview.”

“I have been preparing for weeks, but I still don’t know anything.

Ever had any feelings of failure and pretending? Don’t worry. You are not alone.

An estimated 70% of us are likely to experience at some point or another these feelings of inadequacy and fakeness; the feeling like you’re just on the verge of being exposed for what you really are — an impostor, a fraud. It’s a battle that most of us are often fighting internally, but very few have the courage to talk about it. Because of course, if we do, we will be discovered and the mask will come off. This internal battle has a name, Imposter Syndrome.

If you end up with these feelings just before or during an interview, it can BLOW UP everything that you had been working for. This is why I decided to talk about this with you. I do not want you to give up at the very last moment. I do not want you to stop asking questions for the fear of being “discovered”, I do not want you to shut your mouth and stay away from speaking up because there is a voice in your head saying that you do not belong here. I want you to understand where that voice is coming from and how you can deal with it. Because let me tell you one thing: you are NOT an imposter.
