Imposter Syndrome

Imposter Syndrome

I heard something really powerful this morning, so thought I’d share it.

“Stop trying to fit in, and start focusing on being of service”.

We suffer from IS because we feel that we don’t “fit in” – that we don’t belong. Apparently, we’re back at Rydell High, trying to be part of the cool crowd. (I had to Google the Rydell thing; I hope you’re proud of me!).

To banish IS, we need to stop focusing on others and start focusing on ourselves – specifically the service we provide.

It’s not about “good”, “great”, “better” or “best” – those are all comparisons to others, and not very helpful.

Are you being of service to others in ANY way at all?

Yes?

You’re good.

Of course, you can get better, offer different things or help different people, but that doesn’t negate the fact that ANY time you’re being of service, you’re making the world a better place, and the world is better for having you in it.

  1. I spent 2018 battling IS. Not IBS, that was 2014!

    When you realise your own worthiness you’re on your way to a more peaceful life. And that’s why I don’t care that there’s snow in Munich because I’m destined for somewhere far warmer !!

    1. Hahaha. You mean…Clitheroe? 🙂

      Yes, IBS is a whole different ball game. I’m not a fully trained doctor you understand, but any relief you experience from IBS by being of service is probably entirely coincidental.

      Again, NOT a doctor.
