“That confidence of not knowing what you don't know leads to beginner's luck. As we become more of an expert, we know what we don't know. We're aware of what other people are doing and we're comparing ourselves. That opens up the door for comparison and imposter syndrome to come in.”
“I don't want anyone to think, ‘Oh, imposter syndrome comes up when you're not doing well.’ I actually think it's vice versa. Because when we're pushing ourselves to that next level, thinking bigger and putting ourselves in those situations where we are being stretched, that's what brings up imposter syndrome.”
“When we're feeling the weight of imposter syndrome, it's like we're holding a magnifying glass on ourselves and we’re looking at every possible flaw. Of course, we're going to be overwhelmed with negative thoughts! If we flip that spotlight around and put that on our audience, it’s no longer just about you.”
