have you ever had that sinking feeling that you just don't belong that you're not as good at your job as others think that you are that it's only a matter of time before you're found out what you may be experiencing is what's come to be known as imposter syndrome and in this video we're going to explore 7 signs of imposter syndrome [Music] i'm dr k emotional health mentor and i'm

excited to bring you this collaboration with the mind journal we're talking about seven signs of imposter syndrome and after you watch this video if you head over to my channel i've got a video on five ways to beat imposter syndrome by the way you'll want to stick around until the end because the last sign of imposter syndrome that i'm going to talk about it's a bit shocking number one feeling you're not as competent as others perceive you to be this is the hallmark sign of imposter syndrome and it doesn't matter how good you are
01:02
at what you do no matter how much education and training you've amassed over time that persistent feeling that you are the only one who knows how mediocre you are and everyone else has it wrong it can really be a crippling feeling and the longer it goes on the worse it can get because after all you've fooled them this long and you've got to keep up the appearances right it's tough and that leads us into number two self-doubt let me be clear
01:34
about something a healthy level of self-doubt is a good thing it's a survival mechanism if we were always fully confident and felt invincible we'd probably think we could take that hot pan off the stove without a mitt or step into oncoming traffic because we think we can get across in time but on the other end of the spectrum crippling self-doubt stops us from being able to take action when we question ourselves constantly it can even show up in the form of procrastination
02:04
where we put things off as long as possible and when our self-doubt goes on long enough it can lead us to feel like we don't belong amongst our peers number three attributing success to external factors this is a pretty common sign of imposter syndrome because the truth is you're good at what you do others see it you might not want to admit it and part of not admitting your skills and talents is pointing to external factors like
02:35
luck no i'm not really good i've just been lucky we're sure our luck will run out and then people will find us out number four downplaying performance another common sign of imposter syndrome here when we do perform well and others give us praise we can't take a compliment we can't take the accolades why because it negates our view of ourselves that we're incompetent so we reject the praise we reject the compliments
03:06
it can be subtle though has anyone ever said anything nice to you about how well you did and you said oh thanks but when we use that word but we're basically telling the other person i acknowledge what you said but you are so wrong and you have no idea by the way if you relate to any of these signs of imposter syndrome let me know in the comments below number five over achieving wait what isn't overachieving a good thing i'm such an overachiever
03:38
here's the thing we are imperfect beings all of us so are you overachieving because you want to do great work for those you serve put out good into the world or are you overachieving to run from the deep dark feeling that you are not enough more often than not it's the latter we turn into high performers in our work because we're trying so hard not to feel like we aren't enough on the outside that leads to career success but on the inside
04:09
we still feel like we aren't enough that we don't belong that we're imposters among our peers which leads us to number six fear of being found out if we don't belong if we're not as good as others think we are if we achieved our success because of good fortune if we're constantly having to over achieve to make up for our deficiencies well then it's only a matter of time before we are found out this is one of the more crippling and painful signs of imposter
04:41
syndrome because it's almost like we are constantly looking over our shoulder metaphorically speaking we're waiting for that other shoe to drop we don't know when it's going to come but we are so convinced that it will and yet here you are watching this video and that day has not come number seven setting unrealistically high goals so you can fall short isn't this crazy this is self-sabotage at its finest have you ever told yourself i need to get all this done
05:12
by the end of the weekend just to find yourself unable to complete the work and then you get down on yourself this is an unconscious behavior that creeps its way into so many aspects of our lives we over commit not only to others but to ourselves so that we can prove to ourselves that we're not enough we always take actions most consistent with who we believe we are if we believe we don't belong if we believe we're not enough if we believe we're an imposter
05:44
we're going to take conscious and unconscious action consistent with those beliefs the key to beating imposter syndrome lies in the truths of who we believe we are to dive more deeply into that watch the video five ways to beat imposter syndrome on my channel it'll be linked in the description and in the end screen thanks again to mindjournal for giving me the opportunity to serve you always remember i believe in your [Music]
