The Simple Cure for Imposter Syndrome

Want a simple cure for imposter syndrome?


Here it is: CREATE.


Too simple for you?


Okay, add these caveats:

  • Create without the expectation of reward.

  • Create without comparing yourself to your competitors (real or perceived).

  • Create without caring about the opinions of random critics.

  • Create without forcing.

  • Create in a state of flow, not a state of grind.

  • Create without caring about how many likes, views, and shares you'll receive.

  • Create using your inherent strengths, rather than focusing on your weaknesses.

  • Create according to what you want, rather than what you've been programmed to think you want.

  • Create with abundance, not scarcity.

  • Create to make impact.

  • Create value.

  • Create by focusing on process instead of obsessions about the results.

  • Create new paths when the old ones are blocked.

  • Create so you don't have time for self-pity.

  • Create daily.

  • Create even when you don't feel like it.

  • Create to be free; free yourself to create.

  • Create love for yourself before you try to create it for others.

  • Create daily. Did I write that already? Good - it bears repeating.

  • Create to honor the gifts you were given by your Creator.

“The most creative act you will ever undertake is the act of creating yourself.” Deepak Chopra
