If so, then you might be suffering from imposter syndrome...
There's a little known secret amongst high-achievers.
In many cases this dirty little secret is THE reason why high-achievers with years of experience land low-quality interviews and struggle to get jobs (even with their lengthy track record of proven successes).
Imposter Syndrome is an all-too-real psychological phenomenon that reflects the belief that you're inadequate, incapable, and incompetent (even if your resume is lined with accolades and accomplishments that say otherwise... Imposter Syndrome often leads people to believe their accomplishments are a product of luck rather than their own ability).
Imposter Syndrome is a dangerous, tangled web of self-sabotage that can take many forms.
Valerie Young is a published author and expert on the subject, in her book The Secret Thoughts of Successful Women: Why Capable People Suffer From the Imposter Syndrome and How to Thrive in Spite of It.
In her book she dives into decades of research spent studying the fraudulent feelings high-achievers so often succumb to, and narrowed them down to five “types.”
The Perfectionist - This is an obvious one. Perfectionists are prone to setting excessively high goals for themselves... Then when they fail to reach their goal they're flooded with self-doubt, lose their confidence, and are constantly stressing over whether or not they measure up their peers.
The Superwoman/Man - Superwomen/
The Natural Genius - Natural geniuses tend to judge their success based on their abilities rather than their efforts—they have a disconnected belief that if they have to work hard at or for something, they must be “bad” at it.
The Rugged Individualist - Individualists tend to feel that asking for help will reveal their phoniness to their peers.
The Expert - You may feel like you tricked your employer into hiring you or harbor a deep fear of being exposed as inexperienced or unknowledgeable.
If you found yourself resonating with any of the above it's okay.
Imposter Syndrome is extremely common. And thankfully, it's curable.
