How To Beat 'Impostor Syndrome' At Work

Imposter syndrome is not a myth. It will harm your day to day life on your workplace. Here are some tips you can follow to beat imposter syndrome at work.

How To Beat 'Impostor Syndrome' At Work

Impostor syndrome is a real thing. Anyone who undergoes a large promotion, gets a job at a large firm, or is simply given any responsibility for the first time is liable to think like this. To some extent, feeling this emotion is good. It helps you realize your need to refine your skillset and never let down whoever has given you this opportunity. However, this can become a problem if you’re unable to move past this, or at least function well in your job.

It’s normal to feel out of your depth, but if you’re freezing up regularly, or feel completely lost, or are simply overwhelmed with this new burden, beating impostor syndrome is important. First, make sure that this is not caused by a general anxiety disorder, as this can be much more important to resolve. However, if you feel as though this is not the case, then you might wish for some guidance. We have curated some helpful pointers to help you achieve your best success, and to rock this new job as you were supposed to:

Give Your Best

One of the most surefire ways to feel like an impostor is to fail to give your best. If you do give your best, the guilt, justified or otherwise, will start to dissipate. We often fail to give our complete best because then we can feel worried that when being criticized, we were truly at fault instead of purposefully at fault. It’s an odd protective mechanism we can fall into. Organize yourself, spend time working as carefully as you can, and you will have made a thoroughly fantastic difference, and your impostor syndrome will start to leave you.

Ask When Not Sure

Even the most professional and stalwart military commanders, who are quite literally responsible for thousands upon thousands of lives, do not have all of the answers all of the time. Sometimes, they need to ask questions, or stay updated, or ask about something outside of their specialism. If they can do it, so can you. It’s no mark of failure to ask a question, no matter how simple. It’s a big mark of shame to avoid doing so for fear of looking weak. This way, you’ll absolutely have the right attitude going forward.

Seek Tutorials & Advice

Seeking advice and tutorials, perhaps from profesional blogs like ours, perhaps from downloading YouTube videos to watch and learn from the experts, or maybe from re-reading your old study guides or past experience documentation will all help you learn the most about yourself, and also give you a more competent and textured understanding. This is the same process as asking when not sure, but finding that advice from other means, perhaps more professional outlets, or seeking broader advice relating to how you should conduct yourself. These measures can give you that extra worthwhile boost going forward.

With this advice, we hope you can beat impostor syndrome to the curb. Odds are, you truly deserve to.
