    Don’t let impostor syndrome hold you back.

    Picture an African American girl entering school in 1969, in a white neighborhood. Racial tensions are particularly high in the US, and her city, Los Angeles, has seen race riots and Ku Klux Klan parades in recent years.

    That girl was Shellye Archambeau, and the issues gripping the country impacted her personally, too. 

    Adults called her the N-word on the way to school, other children harassed her, and, in one instance, two classmates physically assaulted her. Even the school administration singled Shellye out. When she got into the Gifted and Talented program, they decided something had gone wrong and asked everyone to retake the entrance test. This second time around, only Shellye failed.

    Such experiences can lead to impostor syndrome – the feeling of not belonging, or of not deserving success. And this often stops people from chasing their goals and living the life they want.

    The key message here is: Don’t let impostor syndrome hold you back.

    Anyone, no matter how smart or ambitious, can fall victim to impostor syndrome. Shellye felt it many times throughout her life. But, fortunately, it can be handled.

    Whenever self-doubting thoughts pop up, remember that they hold no truth and that some of the most successful people battle impostor syndrome. It also helps to act confidently, regardless of how you feel. This is a trick Shellye still uses, even after becoming a Silicon Valley CEO. When she feels intimidated, she feigns confidence and repeats the mantra, “Act like you know what you are doing, listen hard, and, eventually, you will know what you are doing.”

    Even if you have to fake confidence until it feels real, there will be people who believe in you and advocate for you. Shellye calls these your cheerleaders. And when combating impostor syndrome, it’s important to check in with your cheerleaders and believe them when they recognize your worth.

    When Shellye felt like an outsider in her neighborhood and school, she found cheerleaders who helped restore her confidence. One such person was a math teacher, Mrs. Mizrahi. Noticing that Shellye had a talent for math, and a competitive nature, Mrs. Mizrahi encouraged her to help other students with their assignments. This nudge gave Shellye the recognition she needed to boost her self-esteem.

    To identify your cheerleaders, think of those who always encourage you. Ask a good friend to highlight your worth and abilities whenever necessary. This will help you believe in yourself – even when it feels as though the world around you doesn’t.

    Ich bin begeistert. Ich liebe Bücher aber durch zwei kleine Kinder komme ich einfach nicht zum Lesen. Und ja, viele Bücher haben viel bla bla und die Quintessenz ist eigentlich ein Bruchteil.

    Genau dafür ist Blinkist total genial! Es wird auf das Wesentliche reduziert, die Blinks sind gut verständlich, gut zusammengefasst und auch hörbar! Das ist super. 80 Euro für ein ganzes Jahr klingt viel, aber dafür unbegrenzt Zugriff auf 3000 Bücher. Und dieses Wissen und die Zeitersparnis ist unbezahlbar.

    Extrem empfehlenswert. Statt sinnlos im Facebook zu scrollen höre ich jetzt täglich zwischen 3-4 "Bücher". Bei manchen wird schnelle klar, dass der Kauf unnötig ist, da schon das wichtigste zusammen gefasst wurde..bei anderen macht es Lust doch das Buch selbständig zu lesen. Wirklich toll

    Einer der besten, bequemsten und sinnvollsten Apps die auf ein Handy gehören. Jeden morgen 15-20 Minuten für die eigene Weiterbildung/Entwicklung oder Wissen.
