“I Think That Giving Anxiety, A Name, Like The Imposter Syndrome, Is Giving It Life.”

“That Anxiety Is An Awareness Of The Gap Between Who We Are And Who We Want To Be. And This Self-Awareness Tells Us That We're Not Fully Competent. And This Motivates Us Towards Mastery.”

“If We Accept That Anxiety As A Gift, We Can Use It. But If We Don't, If We Look At It As A Curse Or Something That's Bad, And We Try To Run Away From It, We’ll Regress.”

“Fools Do Not Feel That Anxiety Generated From The Imposter Syndrome.”

“The Power Doesn't Come From Labeling This Anxiety As Negative And Then Dismissing It Or Hiding From It. The Power Comes From Labeling This Anxiety As A Competence Gap, And Then Addressing It.”
