  20. 20. Impostor Syndrome A feeling that your achievements are not real or that do you do not deserve praise or success (or feeling unworthy of praise or your success)
  21. 21. Impostor Syndrome When people feel like they are being a fraud and are pretending to be something they are not. And any minute someone is going to figure out that you really know nothing.
  22. 22. Why are we hearing this term now?
  23. 23. “It feels like my hard work has paid off but at the same time I still have impostor syndrome.” (Photo: Christopher Polk, 2017 Getty Images)
  24. 24. “ I still feel like, you know, I'm going to wake up and everybody is going to see me for the hack I am … I still feel like when I walk on the set that I'm starting from scratch. Until I realize, okay, I do know what I'm doing. I'm human.” (Photo: Christopher Polk, 2017 Getty Images)
  25. 25. “This is the first year I've allowed myself just a little bit to see that self deprecation is not the answer to humility. Sometimes you can say I deserve it. That I'm proud of myself and move on.” - Viola Davis (Photo: Christopher Polk, 2017 Getty Images)
  26. 26. “At any time I still expect that the no-talent police will come and arrest me.” - Mike Myers
  27. 27. How do we stay one step ahead of the “no talent police?”
  28. 28. Typical Behaviors • Overpreparing and Hard Work • Holding back • Maintaining a Low or Ever-Changing Profile • Use of Charm or Perceptiveness to Win Approval • Procrastination • Never Finishing • Self-Sabotage
  29. 29. The Bottom Line People with Impostor Syndrome claim their success is due to factors outside themselves. Luck. Timing. Connections. Personality.
  30. 30. Own it.
  31. 31. Go for it. Show up. Be Smart.
  32. 32. Ask me things. Please.
  33. 33. Back to that fear... You can leave it behind.
