Impostor syndrome is something that everyone suffers from in almost every industry. Its the feeling of being a fraud, a fake, a phony and it’s only a matter of time until you’re discovered.
Left unmanaged, it can be outright terrifying and can make you question your every step.
Impostor syndrome can can happen even in situations when you have many years of experience.
For example, I have over 18 years of software experience. If you’re running an Android device, you most likely have some of my code running in it … in one form or another. To outsiders I’m probably successful in my industry, yet at times I still find many areas in technology (even in Android) in which I’m completely ignorant and I have no clue about.
I constantly learn from others, and very often from new developers in the industry. Naturally, this creates a cognitive dissonance in which I know I “should be” a professional, yet I question whether or not I truly am. I will sometimes feel my self thinking “wow, I have no idea what I’m doing here and this is completely confusing” and I’ll see someone else approaching things with ease.
I’ll start to question whether or not I am actually a professional software developer. I question my abilities, I question my actions, my goals, my intentions.
I start to feel like an impostor.
This is a normal feeling, and it’s Ok.
In this episode of the Fragmented podcast, @kaushikgopal and I talk about Impostor Syndrome and some of the tips in which we use to manage it.

So many people that reach out to me feel “stuck” in whatever situation they’re in... are you one of them? Do you realize you have complete control of your reality?! 🤨 YOU are the one that has to decide to change things for something else to happen. So do it. You’re only one decision away from whatever you want in life 😘
I preach this in all my talks, every conference I go to, any meet up or mastermind I get invited to. Everyone always ask “Laura, how are you so confident?!” People ask me this with a face of desperation... my answer is always super simple 👌 The answer is within you. You have to decide to show up & be the best you possible. No matter what the outside may say or the negative things that might be put in front of you. You need to realize. You are your truth you are your light and the world deserves to see you shine 🌟

Self love, self confidence is so fucking important not just in business but in LIFE ❤️ “Trapstar University
Gotta' minor in confidence
Major in finessing
The block gave her a scholarship
Graduated in jail
Her record is her diploma
Only job offers is flippin' pussy or marijuana
But she don't wanna' do either
She just want respect
She just wanna be Aretha
But she don't know how to get Franklins the legal way
She doesn't believe that she can
And that's when I say...” 🔥 The journey hasn’t been easy but def worth it ❤️
