Imposter syndrome is real. Here’s how to overcome it

Have you ever sat in front of a task that you knew you had to complete, but you felt that deep, gut-wrenching feeling that you are somehow not good enough to accomplish it?

You’re not alone. Many of us have struggled with how to overcome imposter syndrome. According to Inc, 80% of adults have reported experiencing imposter syndrome at some point in their lives.

Medium Brush Stroke

Imposter syndrome is a bear to struggle with, but it’s overcome-able. These reasons will help you combat it and give yourself intentional practices to keep at the forefront of your mind.

Practice makes near perfect

When it comes to building a successful side hustle, you’re going to feel new at first. Don’t let that stop you from trying and continuing to explore it anyway you want.

Write down a list of your qualifications

When that small voice comes to wreck your progress, write down a list of reasons why you’re good enough – because you are in fact good enough!

Tell yourself why you’re the best person for this job

Ask yourself why you’re good for this job. Maybe because you’re a kick ass graphic designer and are passionate about the product.

Set a timer for 30 minutes and work

Oftentimes imposter syndrome can keep us from working on the project at all. Short circuit this by giving yourself a 30-minute timer and just starting.
