Running a business is tough, and there are so many hurdles and issues that it’s any wonder we get any sleep at all. Taking cash flow out of the equation, there are still many other things that can cause us to over-analyse who we are and what we do.
Have you ever heard of the imposter syndrome? Chances are you may have experienced it at one time or another.
The imposter syndrome is where you believe that you are unqualified to be doing what you are in fact doing and that people will wake up to this idea and realise that you are unfit for the task. It can happen to anyone, at any time. The imposter syndrome also lets us believe that others know what they are doing – that we are somehow pretending to do the job that others more qualified should be doing.
Does this sound like you? Do you believe you will be found out? Is this worry keeping you up at night?
