If you experience feeling inadequate in your job or having self-doubt, I would like you to know that ๐˜†๐—ผ๐˜‚ ๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ ๐—ป๐—ผ๐˜ ๐—ฎ๐—น๐—ผ๐—ป๐—ฒ.

We somehow think imposter syndrome is something that only happens to people who are learning something new. ๐˜•๐˜ฆ๐˜ธ ๐˜บ๐˜ฐ๐˜จ๐˜ข ๐˜ต๐˜ฆ๐˜ข๐˜ค๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ๐˜ด. ๐˜•๐˜ฆ๐˜ธ ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฏ๐˜ต๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฑ๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฏ๐˜ฆ๐˜ถ๐˜ณ๐˜ด. ๐˜•๐˜ฆ๐˜ธ ๐˜ค๐˜ฐ๐˜ข๐˜ค๐˜ฉ.

Turns out, the feeling of being an imposter never goes away. And in some ways, the more successful you are, the more you feel insecure about yourselves. ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ

Because the more successful we are, the more we feel like we need to live up to what everyone thinks we are or everyoneโ€™s expectations of what we can do.

I think imposter syndrome is so common among teachers for this particular reason. We have this idealistic image of what a yoga teacher should look like, should act like, and should behave like.

( P.S. Yes, I am envisioning god-like images with white robes with halos over their heads).

When we feel like an imposter, itโ€™s because we feel insecure. We feel insecure because we are stepping out of our comfort zone. I hope that by this time, youโ€™ll see imposter syndrome as a sign that you are choosing courage over comfort. ๐Ÿค—

See self-doubt as good news; because having self-doubt is what keeps us humble, keep us learning, and wanting to be better.

Growth is uncomfortable. Accept your thoughts. And keep going anyways. ๐Ÿ’ช

Action is the most potent way to conquer fear. Action is the most potent way to prove yourself wrong. Action is how you show yourself and the world what you are capable of.

Know that feeling like an imposter only means you care but donโ€™t let it hold you back.

Steel and prepare yourself for great things that are about to come. ๐Ÿ™‚
