    Friends, don't solve your impostor syndrome.


    Because there is nothing there to be solved.

    Not good enough is a feeling just like sadness, anger, or frustration.

    But you don’t say “sadness syndrome” or “anger syndrome” or “frustration syndrome”.

    If you want to feel good enough allow yourself to feel not good enough.

    Surrender. Give up. Stop fixing yourself.

    Give yourself the right to feel insecure for a moment.

    But how can you do that when you are bombarded with hundreds of articles every single day by leadership experts and well-respected websites?

    Have NYT, WSJ, HBR, inc.com, lifehacker and all the others helped you to feel good enough???

    If not, why not take a break?

    What if impostor syndrome was not a problem?

    Allow yourself to feel not good enough for a day.

    And go back to your beautiful work.

    See if that works.

    Loving you, Angelos
