The Daily Prompt:
Are you full of confidence or have you ever suffered from Imposter Syndrome? Tell us all about it.
I had to click on the definition of the” Imposter Syndrome,” since I was not aware of it. Apparently it is when people cannot accept that their achievements can be attributed to themselves, and feel that there was a stroke of luck involved. They also apparently feel that they don’t deserve their achievements. Quite interesting actually; I can see how some people could feel that way.
“The credit belongs to those who are actually in the arena, who strive valiantly; who know the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spend themselves in a worthy cause; who at best know the triumph of high achievement, and who, at worst, if they fail, fail while daring greatly, so that their place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.”
I don’t have this problem though. I think I am aware of how good and how bad I am at things. Most of the time I just try my best, sometimes its good enough, sometimes it isn’t. I’m not superwoman.
