Good episode? Give it some love!
Have you ever felt like you are your own imposter? Join Rob as he discusses why imposter syndrome is a myth. Discover why when you label yourself with imposter syndrome you make out something is wrong with you, how imposter syndrome is just emotions reacting to your new environment and why just because you have failed at something, does not mean you are a failure.

KEY TAKEAWAYS
When you label yourself with imposter syndrome you make out that there is something wrong with you. The feelings you have when you have imposter syndrome are normal, you are supposed to have those feelings.

All imposter syndrome is, is an emotion. You may be feeling nervous, inexperienced, subordinated or out of your comfort zone, that all it is. That is a good emotion to have, it is normal to feel those feelings.

You have a myriad of these emotions and these are all really useful emotions. When you start something new, you want to feel humble to the point where you are a hungry student eager to learn from the best, the imposter syndrome keeps you in your position.

You are good enough. You are not a failure if you fail, you are not an imposter if you feel this imposter syndrome. These are just emotions, you may not know what your emotions are and you may feel confused about them.

Every human emotion is useful and necessary otherwise you wouldn’t feel it. Emotions are simply feedback for the environment, so you feel good when something in the environment makes you feel safe and you feel bad when an environment challenges you.

BEST MOMENTS
