Imposter Syndrome: You Can Grow From Being Uncomfortable

  1. Noticing the thoughts that arise. I can’t do this; I don’t belong here; How did I get myself into this?
  2. Pause, and remember that it’s common to feel these things when you’re starting something new or challenging.
  3. Use any healthy strategies you have to calm yourself from stress, such as breathing exercises, meditation, exercise, journaling, etc.
  4. Try a mantra, or reframe your thoughts to practice a confident mindset. I am going to let myself grow in this opportunity; I can do this.
