STEP 1. Believe your self
It’s hard to be successful when you don’t believe in yourself. Without self-confidence, you’re less likely to try new things and take risks. Bottom line—if you don’t believe in yourself, it will be hard for other people to have confidence in your abilities. Many people suffer from impostor syndrome this syndrome believes they’re frauds and, despite evidence to the contrary, feels they don’t deserve the success they’ve achieved. They often feel like their “cover will be blown” and people will find out the truth that their success is based on luck.
STEP 2. Positive mindset
The simplest way to overcome imposter syndrome is to surround yourself with people who believe in you. The goal here is to get regular encouragement and a genuine pat on the back for a job well done. This type of support from those who know you well can help you to truly believe that you have something unique to offer to the world. Additionally, you should spend less time around people who tear you down. You may not be able to avoid negative people completely, especially if they’re family members, but try hard to reduce the amount of time you spend with them.
STEP 3. Life like Offer to the World
We all have gifts to share with the world. It’s important to not just use them for your pain, but also to enrich other people’s lives. Now is the time to silence your inner critic, live life to the fullest, and be all that you were meant to be.
Implementation & action mindset
We all have moments of doubt, so it’s silly to think you’ll go through an entire day with a grin plastered on your face. Instead, you need to have a strategy to improve your mood when you’re feeling those moments of self-doubt. Here’s how to do this.
1. Keep a file of positive things people say about you. For instance, if you get a message praising you, add it to the file. Ask people for recommendations and add them to this ever-growing file. Read through it whenever you feel insecure.
2. Choose your friends and associates wisely, and avoid those who tend to tear you down. Don’t compare yourself with others. Instead, compare your current self with your past self, and always strive to make improvements.
