Some of the Resources recommended in this episode:

  • 1
    Realize that you aren’t alone.  Even very successful people that you know and admire suffer from this tendency.
  • 2
    Keep a file of things that people have said and shared with you about things you do well.  Create a Happy File.  
  • 3
    Don’t fall into the trap of comparing yourself to someone else who appears more successful or talented.  Realize you don’t see the full picture and can’t possibly really know their life.  Besides odds are good they suffer from impostor syndrome too.
  • 4
    Recognize that some of the things that come easily to you don’t come easily to others.  And the converse is also true.  So you don’ have to be perfect at everything but it’s also okay to admit that there are things you are good at that may help others.
  • 5
    Try to recognize this feeling and instead say out loud that’s just impostor syndrome and then recognize that even if you fail or make a mistake it doesn’t mean you are a fake, phony, failure.  Instead it simply means that you tried and failed this time.
  • 6
    Recognize that the world needs your special gifts and calling and if you hold back you are robbing the world of that gift.
  • 7
    Say what you can do but don’t stress about those things you can’t do or know.  Admit those too.  Be authentic and honest
  • 8
    Accept feedback and compliments openly with a thank you.
  • 9
    Find a mentor, coach, or friend and talk to them about it.  Admit to them your feelings.
  • 10
    Take action.  Even a small action.  Doing something towards the goal is often the best cure for impostor syndrome.  Action breeds belief.
