1.Practice Self-Compassion

For someone who has big goals, which I hope you do. It can be easy to experience self-doubt because the goals seem unattainable. 

However, your goals are not the problem, they are actually great. But when you seem to not be making progress, do not doubt yourself. 

Instead, be compassionate to yourself as you would others. 

We are only human and all make mistakes along the way.

9. Keep a Journal

Keeping a journal is therapeutic and allows you to keep track of how you are feeling. It helps you get all your thinking out onto a page and gives you a release from self-doubt. 

The reason why is because as you read your problems, you may learn that they are not as big as you thought they were. 

This helps relieve self-doubt.

10. Seek Professional Help

You may find that none of this helps. And that is okay. It is important that you are honest with yourself and do not be ashamed to seek help. 

Remember, self-doubt will hold you back more than the embarrassment you may feel for a moment. 

So, seek professional help and begin a gradual process back to confidence.

4. Be Mindful of Your Thinking

Negative thoughts pop into all of our minds. It is a natural thing for the brain to do as it is designed to protect us from risk. 

Always evaluate whether you actually believe those thoughts and start thinking about the positive outcomes.

The Impostor Syndrome And Our Expectations

The new generation has experienced a never-ending stream of expectations, where their achievements are never enough. They are always pushed up on the edge of perfection, being rated and scored every moment.

This is a major cause of the phenomenon of the Impostor Syndrome, where an individual secretly has the notion of being incompetent or unqualified for the role or job, even though he or she may have been a high-achiever, and most likely a perfectionist.
