Today’s post was inspired by a similar post from my friend @kev the other day. In it I talk about my own experience with imposter syndrome and how I’m trying to use it these to my advantage these days. https://chriswiegman.com/2022/05/my-life-as-an-imposter/
@chris @kev two good reads! Makes me remember a coaching session a few years back where the coach asked me to actually list things I'm good at. I drew a complete blank. Switching to the perspective of a client I could explain what they got out of working with me, but none of it I'd tie to me being expert at something, let alone say out loud. Probably need to write my own posting now about impostor syndrome.
Love this thread. One thing that could help you get un-blank, could be to reminisce yourself about an action you took and look at the way you did it. From that concrete example (instead of being general) you may see and discover some of what you're good at. But a list is too narrow i feel.
@chris Super read and gosh i feel you. I have been looking into this myself, but I have wondered if the issue has been to compare myself to others thanks to "great" education that needs us to go against the others.
What I'm doing is to help ppl to understand and reveal their own unique resources so that they reconnect to their own brilliance.
Which might help them with the impostor syndrom... @kev
