I thought my achievements in the academic scene would equip and give me the necessary confidence to go after my desires and also help me get a good job. It didn’t. In fact, it created more insecurity in me as I constantly doubt myself, and my credibility to have achieved a distinction. I feared to take on challenges and would prefer not to tell people I had a master’s because I felt people would question my abilities or judge me.
My breakthrough came about when I started investing in personal development, attending courses, seminars, and workshops. I invested in books and Joined toastmasters to build my confidence and also improve my public speaking and leadership skills.
Gradually I began to see how faulty my perceptions were. I noticed how I continuously sabotage my efforts due to fear – fear of criticism, and judgment. I worried about what people would say or thought about me. Through self-awareness, I realized how my thoughts were creating mental self-torments and the feeling of imposter syndrome.
I’ve come a long way and today I’m grateful for all the lessons I’ve learned thus far. With what I have learned, I’ve been opportune to also help others who suffer from imposter syndrome, low self-esteem, self-doubts, and the feeling of unworthiness. I’ve also been able to utilize my degree and consulted for startups and large organizations around the world.
Imposter syndrome is a big challenge most people face today especially experts and educated people. Been able to help people see through this mental fog has been an exhilarating experience for me.
