There’s a plague running through corporate leadership, imposter syndrome. Imposter syndrome is that inner voice telling you that you’re not good enough. They’ll figure you out, and then you’re in trouble.

I know this to be true, as I used to struggle with a terrible case. I would self-sabotage myself for the sake of them not finding out the truth.

You always have what you need to be a leader. Ignore that little imposter voice and go for it. The whole imposter thing is just a story you’re making up to protect your ego. You’re worried about being judged, but the ironic thing is the only one judging you is you.

My go-to tactic for battling my imposter syndrome is to repeatedly tell myself, “What other people think of me is none of my business.” Give it a try sometime, because it’s true.

You’ve got this.
