What does imposter syndrome feel like?

Imposter syndrome can affect high-achieving people. It may be difficult to accept their accomplishments and realize they deserve everything they've worked for. 

It's not luck, it's hard work. 

A few examples of how imposter syndrome feels:

  • Attributing your success to luck
  • Fear that you won't live up to expectations
  • Downplaying your expertise, even when you are genuinely more skilled than others
  • Feeling like you'll be found out as a phony
  • Working harder to ease the guilt of "tricking people"

I hope this blog post helps anyone feeling this way, because you've worked hard to get where you are, and you deserve all of the success and praise.
