IMPOSTOR SYNDROME - Impostor syndrome (also known as impostor phenomenon, impostorism, fraud syndrome or the impostor experience) is a psychological pattern in which an individual doubts their accomplishments, and has a persistent internalized fear of being exposed as a "fraud".
I meet so many candidates who suffer from this. People in jobs they don’t know how they got, or those scared to apply for a role/panicking after interview assuming that they’ve not got the job cos the hirer has discovered they’re actually rubbish.
Let me be clear here, our reputations are on the line - and if you’re shit? You’re not even getting into that interview room on our watch. If we put you forward, we have faith in you, so have some faith in yourself.
I have the same issue. I shit myself every time I do a blog post, or write an insta caption. The fact that I ‘run a business’ makes me so proud one day, and question whether I’m totally blind to how crap I am the next.
Tonight a post I was asked to do as a guest blog goes live on LinkedIn. I’m dreading it. They’ve been pretty well received til now, but this one if for someone else’s project. They’ve pre announced its coming in and tagged in all my LI heroes in advance. The anxiety is fucking 📈
People don’t ask you to do things to represent them if they don’t think you cut the mustard. Forget the bullshit in your head, own your abilities. Breathe in confidence and throw that other shite out the window.
Me trying to figure my life out ... 😂
Funnest day of my life sitting in ground school and learning the whiz wheel 😱😩😂 #getmeoutofhere
❤️MY LUNGS ARE CLEAR!! 🙌🏼 THE PNEUMONIA IS GONE!! 🙏🏻 #Jake #getmeoutofhere #xray #allgood #nomorepills #grateful #browneyedboy #myheart #lovehim
We are so incredibly happy and cannot begin to thank all of our wonderful friends enough for their continued prayers. They worked!! 🙏🏻❤️I am off all medications. No more nasty pills! 🙌🏼 Maybe I will occasionally get a steak!! 🤔🥩The Dr said my stomach upset is from the antibiotics and should clear within a day or so. I was diagnosed with IBD, (hence the reflux) but we can adjust my diet and hopefully get this under control. Mama might need some suggestions with recipes.😋 We are so relieved. Sending out lots of hugs and big Jakey Boy kisses to everyone. I am ready for my bow tie. 😘❤️Check our my story! 🌈🙏🏻 .
🎈Wishing my sweet friends Sierra @sierra_scully_vinny

a very Happy Birthday. ❤️🎂#bighugs
Happy Sunday!! Currently in Texas and it’s 108 degrees...... !!!🚫🔥❌ So obviously I cant stop day dreaming about places like this 👆🏼#getmeoutofhere
Oh man what i would do to get back on the lake and outta the oil farm.
I’m starting to question this particular comfort zone that I have allowed myself to get stuck in, with my life in London. This complacent way of living is not very art friendly...
When you want to protect your nephews from the wild water monsters but then instantly regret it realising they wear swim shorts and it’s you who needs protection... ☀️🌊😨 #doetinchem #waterpret #getmeoutofhere
Grateful ::: So many things I’m grateful for.. Health, my family or even little things like my fitness hobby. I’m glad that came into my life!! I have literally never liked working out but I’m glad it’s part of my daily routine. My body feels a little sore this morning from camping last night on the hard ground!! Much needed yoga day!!
Nice to walk round over the weekend
