I've heard it said and I bet you have too, "I feel like an imposter" I wonder where this notion comes from. How often do we investigate these thoughts, these saying's that come along and sound very plausible before we hop on the train and get taken for a ride. Have you noticed the people who say it the most are some of the most educated and accomplished people you've met? No, really have you noticed? I mean, how much more can they do to prove they have the juice, that they have what it takes to do the job because no amount of education or head knowledge is gonna get you in the game, it will take action to quiet that loud train noise.
Here is the definition of imposter syndrome - (aka impostor phenomenon or impostorism) it is a psychological occurrence in which an individual doubts their skills, talents, or accomplishments and has a persistent internalized fear of being exposed as a fraud.
Okay, so unless you had someone else take the classes for you and pose as you, you were the one who put in the work. So the only way to truly get great at something is to take action, even if that means falling over your feet looking like a dufus guess what???? YOU did it....PERIOD!!
So dear fellow living beings, let us awaken to this truth, there is and always will be more to learn, and opportunities of growth. And the reality is we all have blind spots that we don't see but take joy in this, you and I will get an opportunity of discovery therefore, let us go in search of those paths which will allow for growth and self-honesty. Prepare for a battle because lies have slithered in parading as truth.
I look forward to seeing you, my fellow living beings in the big wide-wild world, adding value and making an impact.
