Today we are talking about self-doubt. The particular self-doubt that gets in your head, maybe when you’ve gotten a promotion, or you just started dating someone that is a bit out of your league. It says: “You don’t deserve this, you shouldn't be here”.
This is called imposter syndrome, and unfortunately, it can make you self sabotage the thing that you just got so you fall back to where you feel comfortable, even though you were deserving of what you had. Which is why in this video, I will talk about three behavioral changes to CRUSH imposter syndrome.

1:55 - Change #1: You will not overstate what you can do going forwards
3:32 - Change #2: Take honest stock of your past, then see if you can help
4:50 - Change #3: Focus on creating results for the people around you

I am not even an expert at being myself. I only wish to become and expert at not dwelling upon my mistakes and use such downfalls in my life as potential learning experiences to make myself as well as everyone i care about sincerely happy in ways that are not selfish or deceitful.

Good video, here's my summary: • Imposter syndrome = self-doubt that says "u don't deserve this / to be here" (e. g. after getting a promotion) • Can make u self-sabotage that thing u just got -> u fall back 2 where u where before (/felt comfortable) • World is full of imposters; having a healthy dose of scepticism towards ur own abilities is good (prevents overconfidence bias) • Mindset to deal with imposter syndrome: "They're not expecting me to be the best in the world. They're expecting me to help in the way that I say I can. If I do that, I'm not an imposter." • This mindset implies three behavioral changes: a. Don't overstate what u can do i. Draw clear boundaries over what u can / can't do yet b. Take an honest stock of your past, then see if u can help i. Weigh all positive against all negative feedback: What overweighs? Don't sweat the small stuff. c. Focus on creating results for the people around u i. People don't care about ur credentials; they want u to change their life in a positive way

Generally love your videos but I have to say that you missed the target on this one. Impostor Syndrome is when you can do the job or you are worthy of the situation, but you still fear that you are not and that any day now you'll be discovered. For example: maybe you've been doing a good job for several years, but you still live in fear that sometime very soon, something will come along that will reveal that you aren't nearly as competent as your boss and coworkers believe you are. The fact that that "revealing event" never occurs doesn't diminish your unfounded fears. Another example may be that someone believes that they are not as interesting, intelligent, attractive, fashionable, as their group of friends. Even though that group of friends really like the person, they live with the nagging feeling that they don't deserve to be a member of this friend group and that soon, the friends will realize it. What you're describing is this video is more like "Poser Syndrome" (don't know if that's actually a thing) where you've, intentionally or unintentionally, put yourself into a position that you are not prepared for. Impostor Syndrome = fearing that you're not worthy when you actually are. Poser Syndrome = when you are pretending to be worthy or capable of something that you are not. PS: Impostor is spelled with 2 'o's and no 'e's.

I hate imposter syndrome. Whenever it is that I'm about to start a relationship with someone, there's this voice in my head like "you sure? maybe you don't like her anymore. responsibility is scary, y'know...". Dammit. But anyways, you're welcome, Charlie.

Video feels like it's talking more about self-awareness than imposter syndrome. Or is that the point of the video --- fighting imposter syndrome with self-awareness? Sorry, listening while doing laundry LOL

I have an issue where when I am successful in some application for something, I look back at the application documents and try to remember things I probably did good in an attempt to self-satisfy myself. But at the same time, I seriously feel like this is a very bad habit since I am not looking at the things I probably did bad or wrong that I should improve, thus not improving myself at all. I feel like I am conveniently cherry picking things that would make me feel better, which later turns into "I feel like a fake" or "full of myself". Would this count as imposter syndrome? Or would this count as narcissism?

When you said "Thank you" at the beginning of the video, I felt tears coming up. Have been working very hard for many years on conquering my imposter syndrome. Recently turned down a job with no challenge and where I would have been underpaid, because I realized I should authorize myself to aim higher. Thanks for all your videos, they help me in countless ways.

I feel like this is a complete misrepresentation of what imposter syndrome actually is. I like the message of how not to be an imposter, but imposter syndrome is not something to celebrate. It means a person doesn't know their own worth. For a lot of people it's a symptom of chronic gaslighting from a loved one.

I would argue that a good imposter has more value and even surpasses the genuine article. In the attempt of becoming convincing as the real deal, the imposter must put in even more effort and learn to become the thing that they are emulating. Whatever flaws or imperfections of a genuine article would not be emulated, as those things are not a part of the general public's idealization of the subject. Ultimately becoming the idealized version of what they are mimicking.

That's some absolutely great advice. I think most of the time, we expect ourselves to be the best in the world at everything - and this can be detrimental to our self-confidence if we do not reach these self-inflicted expectations.

Can you do one on making friends as an adult? It's not like school or college where everyone's priorities are really similar and everyone's life experience is really similar in that moment. I think that experience of having gone through something together is what turns a casual friendship into a real bond. It's so much harder when you don't have the one thing you are going through together like finals week in college. We grow up and we all have our own lives, and we all have our close friends or partners by now that we tap into for difficult situations. At this point we all also have our own priorities which are all different. Well...what the frick are you supposed to do when you move? All the new casual friendships seem shallow. How do you progress a platonic friendship as a mature adult without seeming juvenile or manufactured

I felt like this at my new job. I'm a long time retail employee going into a health care job. The kind of appearance and way that I talk to others has to completely change because I'm not trying to sell someone something, and I'm not at a place just to collect a check. So I feel insecure like I need to over come other peoples doubts about me.

Really grand video :-) The only thing I think you could have perhaps added to give it more value was to include some info on why you may feel compelled to fall into the 'imposter' trap. Even if it's just to say 'this falls under the emotional management umbrella and we'll address that in another video'. When I look at any coaching video what makes the difference for me between 'I take this seriously' and 'I turn it off' is the extent to which they anticipate barriers and have techniques to overcome them. You do a great job though, and are well ahead of the competition.

So... I've been procrastinating to watch this video for about a week since i found it. I watched it today, and i cried. I've been struggling a lot with my perfectionism and negative thoughts in my head saying that I dont deserve this and that. i always see myself as a fraud that i fear people might find out so I shut my self down and push people away, even though i know their intentions are good. But i just dont think i deserve their open hands. This video however, is that kind of help that makes me realise lots of things. Thanks!

This was a really great video. I often feel like a bit of an imposter even though I run my own business and it's going really well. On number 1, it's great advice for people looking for a job and doing interviews. Anybody I've had to fire, let go or was generally disappointed in their work performance was due to promises they'd made and later broken on their interviews. Number 3 is great advice for anyone but especially for freelancers or people looking to start their own thing. Having a certification is great but much of the time it only means you'll be comfortable with the jargon and not the actual work.
