Psychology: Impostor Syndrome

Impostor Syndrome

Last night walking home with my husband, we talked a lot about our fears.

He is an athlete, a mixed martial arts sportsman, which is kind of hard and scary thing to do. So, he has a contest in seven days, one of hundreds that he had to do, in his sport career. 

Anyway, he started sharing with me, how anxious, troubled and maybe unprepared he feels, for what’s laying ahead. 

On the other hand, I’m a sport psychologist, who just started a career in the field. Of course, I wanted to help. To ease his mind, he’s worries. But I’m scared. 

Thoughts rushing in my mind. I don’t have enough experience, knowledge … insight or that he is seeing me, like the goofy nerdy wife, that sometimes I’m. And not the professional that situation demands it.

Well, the next video, once again, reminds me that this is the story of all of us. 

Doesn’t matter how old you are, or young, how big is your account, or not, how much experienced you are, or just at the beginning, all of us, feel sometimes like an “ impostor “. 

And eventually, is not a bad feeling, it is a transformative step in your development.
