Ep. 304: A Case of Imposter Syndrome

All too often, we circle between the highs and lows of our lives, one day thinking we are on top of the world and the next day thinking we aren't worthy or capable of anything worthwhile. I used to think this was a weird phenomenon in my own life, but I'm starting to see this is much more common than I previously thought.

As entrepreneurs, creators and business people, we are constantly bombarded with tons of things, obstacles, emotions, feelings, and all kinds of other noise throughout the day. This has a funny way of stealing your confidence if you allow it to - especially if you work in isolation.

One way I have personally found to combat this is through small meditative moments throughout the day and through the practice of regular journaling. There is some form of distinct power that comes out when you literally hand-write your thoughts and feelings onto paper, but typing them can also do the trick.

Question: Have you dealt with imposter syndrome before (or are you dealing with it now) and what have you done to combat it?
