Once I started to realize that I don’t have to compete it set me free. I can just focus on my progress and not the progress of others. Sure, friendly competition can be fun; however, I desire to see the progress I’ve made over the years. If I review over the years let’s say, in nursing field I can see how far I have come. I started out as a shy and unsure CNA. Now, I’m much more confident. I’m surer of myself and my skillset. I still have a long way to go in the confidence department. It’s helpful to know that most people are walking around with imposter syndrome. Some not all. It’s good to be confident but maybe we can make imposter syndrome work for us. For one, it can keep us humble. Two, it can motivate you to become surer of yourself.
I hope the holiday season is treating you well. I’m keeping this short since the holidays are upon us and I’m sure you have plenty on your to do list. Feel free to comment or sign the guest book. I love to socialize.
