1. Remember to own your wins

Big or small, remember to celebrate and think about your achievements! Remember that the things you've accomplished were because you applied your unique point of view, knowledge and skills to complete it. Knowing your worth means allowing your work to speak for itself and letting others see it too.


2. Change your mindset

That's right - stop comparing yourself to Sally over there. Sally is Sally, and you are uniquely you. Learn to recognize when you have self-defeating thoughts and replace them with positive affirmations. When you stop thinking of yourself as an imposter, you'll stop feeling like one.

3. Perfection is not the answer

It's time to stop believing that if you don't excel at every single this at your job, that you're a failure at all of it. Making mistakes and facing challenges is a part of growing - be sure to remember that anytime you feel like imposter syndrome is taking over.
