Fake It 'Til You Make It!

Imposter is a psychological pattern in which one doubts one's accomplishments and has a persistent internalized fear of being exposed as a "fraud.” Despite external evidence of their competence, those experiencing this phenomenon remain convinced that they are frauds, and do not deserve all they have achieved. How can you overcome it and feel confident in all spaces of your life!
