I learned great techniques to cure impostor syndrome from the LinkedIn Learning Podcast at https://www.linkedin.com/learning/the-cure-for-impostor-syndrome/everyone-loses-when-you-play-small
- I am entitled to being wrong or being late or taking a day off like everyone else and it’s okay.
- I should give my best shot and when I fail, I should not remember the failure, but that I gave it my best (Deadpool “Maximum Effort” style) and the outcome is out of my contorl. (Karmanyevadhikaraste Ma Faleshu Kadacha Na).
- If I think I fooled everyone into believing that I’m smarter than I really am, I am being arrogant by alluding that everyone is gullible. I am not some master conman deceiving the whole world. The professors, managers and recruiters who hired and promoted me are not too inept to recognize my incompetency.
- Everyone loses when bright people play small.
The world suffers a lot. Not because of the violence of bad people but because of the silence of good people.Napoleon Bonaparte
