Some of the strategies we use for feeling better about ourselves include:

  • Take more action: We think if we just did everything right and lived up to our criteria we would feel worthy and successful.
    The truth is that as long as you don’t feel good enough, you could do everything right and you would still not feel good enough.

  • Positive Affirmations: We think if we repeat “I am worthy” over and over we will feel better about ourselves.
    The truth is sometimes that works… and sometimes it backfires. It backfires because it feels inauthentic, and if it feels inauthentic it reinforces our imposter syndrome.
