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