Stop asking for permission to something you already have access to. #KélaVie
At #CultureCon someone asked me about the imposter syndrome which I’d never heard of or at least never knew there was a name for. Apparently it is the inability to internalize your accomplishments and a persistent fear of being exposed as a "fraud”. I’mma tell you like I told her, know that any place you are invited to, whether it’s professional or personal, you belong there. It doesn’t matter how successful & qualified everyone else in the room is. If you’re in the room, you’re just as successful and qualified. The conference featured leading entrepreneurs and dope AF creatives like @officialspikelee , @laurenmaillian, @bereolaesque & @thenotoriouskia to name a few. I could have easily shriveled in insecurity but nah, I was invited to be there. I’m worthy. And so are you. Know that. OWN THAT. Ain’t no imposter syndrome around here.
No one can ever make you feel inferior without your consent. http://liketk.it/2t4oU #liketkit @liketoknow.it
