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 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 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
