Impostor Syndrome - What It Is and How To Overcome It
“I have written eleven books, but each time I think, ‘Uh oh, they’re going to find out now. I’ve run a game on everybody, and they’re going to find me out.’”
- Maya Angelou
“I wonder how long it will take before someone figures out that I’m not very good at this.”
“I really don’t deserve my success. I’m the perfect example of the word lucky.”
“I shouldn’t have been given this job. I don’t know what I’m doing.”
