Have you ever felt that you don’t deserve the position or status that you currently have, despite all the progress and achievements you’ve had? You could be having an imposter syndrome moment.

In today’s episode of A Week In Review, Jaime and Sara discuss the topic of Imposter Syndrome.

Imposter Syndrome

So what is Imposter Syndrome? Imposter Syndrome (IS) refers to an internal experience of believing that you are not as competent as others perceive you to be.

To put it simply, imposter syndrome is the experience of feeling like a phony—you feel as though at any moment you are going to be found out as a fraud—like you don’t belong where you are, and you only got there through dumb luck. It can affect anyone no matter their social status, work background, skill level, or degree of expertise.

For some people, this feeling of imposter syndrome can fuel motivation to do better. Though at the same time, it can also trigger anxieties and insecurities.

Jaime and Sara’s Thoughts on Imposter Syndrome

Jaime and Sara both admit to having these feelings from time to time. They feel like they’re not really experts in the particular fields and tasks that they do, despite being able to do them well over the years.

“I think it’s okay to not be an expert. Just be good at what you do.” – Sara Knox

Yet knowing that they’re not “experts” in their fields drives them to do better and learn more. But as Imposter Syndrome hits, it does make them feel uncertain at times. Though it helps that they are see their business progress in ways that they have envisioned it to be.
