Combat Imposter Syndrome with Digital Coaching

Imposter syndrome is a feeling that you are not as good at something as you think you are. The name refers to the “impostor” who’s pretending to be someone or something they’re not, but inside they feel like the fraud that everyone else thinks they are. It’s similar to impostor syndrome in that way, but it’s also very different: You don’t have any doubts about being yourself or having an identity—it’s just that you feel like your accomplishments aren’t real or deserved because other people will find out how bad at everything (everything!) really is.”

Imposter syndrome is the idea that you feel like a fraud and that your accomplishments aren’t real or deserved.

It can be a huge barrier for people who are trying to improve their working lives, whether it’s through developing new skills or taking on new responsibilities.

I’ve had imposter syndrome since I was in high school, but it got especially bad after I graduated from college and entered the workforce. It affected my ability to contribute at work because I didn’t feel like my ideas were worth sharing with other people. If I did share them with others, I would second-guess myself and fear being found out as an “imposter.” This led to me delaying decisions about where my career was going—and ultimately led me down paths that weren’t right for me in the long run.

I have a tendency to doubt my own ability and to put undue emphasis on my failures.

When we fail, it’s important that we learn from our mistakes. But it’s also important to not dwell on those failures or allow them to define who we are. If you do this, you can fall into a state of what researchers call imposter syndrome—a feeling of inadequacy and incompetence that persists even when your success is obvious to others around you.

You shouldn’t be afraid to ask for help when necessary.

I often feel that, despite praise and recognition, I am secretly not a very good person.

If you find yourself thinking or feeling:

  • I often feel that, despite praise and recognition, I am secretly not a very good person.
  • I have a constant fear of being found out as a fraud who doesn’t deserve the success they have achieved.
  • Somehow, despite all the evidence to the contrary and praise from others, I still don’t believe that I am capable of doing what it takes.

When I’m working on a project, I frequently find myself questioning my abilities, instead of just focusing on the work.

I worry that I won’t be able to do it well enough for them.

When a project succeeds, I sometimes attribute it more to luck than anything else.

Because you’re human, you’re susceptible to a phenomenon called overconfidence bias. This means that when something goes well, we tend to attribute it more to our own intelligence or skill than to luck—a cognitive bias known as the “self-serving attribution error.”

Overconfidence is one of the most common pitfalls in life and business. For example, if you have a successful presentation at work and attribute it primarily to your superior preparation and presentation skills (rather than luck), it will probably make your next presentation even better!

When things don’t go as planned, this is where underconfidence comes into play: In order for all of us not to become completely paralyzed by fear, we also need some level of confidence so we can take action on ideas or opportunities that may or may not succeed. The problem with this is that when failure does happen (and it will!), we tend not only fail at attributing success but also fail at acknowledging our own efforts—which can lead us down an unproductive path toward feeling like a fraud or imposter.

Digital coaching can help combat imposter syndrome by providing customized lesson plans and support for your goals and emotions.

Digital coaching can help combat imposter syndrome by providing customized lesson plans and support for your goals and emotions. It is important to identify what you want to accomplish, but it is also crucial that you build a solid foundation of confidence in yourself. Your coach will guide you through the process, providing guidance when needed, but not micromanaging every step of the way.

This type of personalized learning can help people overcome imposter syndrome and achieve their goals because they are given the tools they need at their own pace with personalized instruction from experts in their field.

Digital coaching can help people succeed in life by giving them confidence in themselves so that they know that they have what it takes to achieve whatever goal they set for themselves first before trying something new or taking on another challenge in life!

Conclusion

I know it can be hard to face imposter syndrome, especially when it’s something that you struggle with. But remember that you’re not alone! Many people deal with this feeling, and there are strategies that can help you work through it. I hope my story and these tips have made a difference in your life.
