This post is dedicated to my sister – the moon.
In the spirit of Halloween, dressing up and pretending to be others, we’ll be discussing the Impostor Syndrome today.
The Impostor Syndrome
“is a concept describing individuals who are marked by an inability to internalize their accomplishments and a persistent fear of being exposed as a “fraud”. The term was coined in 1978 by clinical psychologists Pauline R. Clance and Suzanne A. Imes. Despite external evidence of their competence, those exhibiting the syndrome remain convinced that they are frauds and do not deserve the success they have achieved“

The Impostor Syndrome is the belief that your abilities are grossly exaggerated and that you actually do not deliver quality work (even when everyone who has worked with you says you do). It’s like you’re in a room full of Gucci and you swear you’re Gussi and it won’t take long for people to find out.
Is it learned or learnt?
Well, I still think they are both right and that is not why I have gathered you today (huhuhuhu). In the Americas, the month of September is recognised as the National Sewing Month and it is so apt that I am finally able to share my Sewing experience with you all. So, sit back grab a cup of tea…
This is… how I learned to sew in one day!
What did you do over the weekend? Last weekend, I completed my CBAP Bootcamp classes! If you are interested in Business Analysis and you want to get certified, I will recommend my teacher over and over and over again! Shoot me an email and I’ll def share his contact details with you.
If you have been on this journey with me long enough, you know how fascinated I am with learning new things: Six Sigma | Languages | Other courses. In my vision board, I picked one major training I wanted to complete. So far (so so good), I have undertaken three new learning activities this year: Safe Agile, Business Analysis (CBAP in view) and a Sewing Class. Today, I want to share with you ways you can improve yourself in your chosen field of work.
To answer the question in the blogpost title, I am a learner. So, a little about me:
How’s it going?
It’s Saturday morning and it is dry. I am so thankful for this, because this time last week we couldn’t even see our street. Island Problems? Global Warming? or Bad Planning?
One of the things I was so sure I wanted was a floral crown for my court wedding. I already had the dress and the shoes were a gift from The Shoe Shop Nig two years ago. The only thing new was going to be my floral crown and I was going to do it myself! It’s a Saturday Short post combined with Learn Something New and I hope my directions are easy and clear enough for you to DIY!
Well, if you have market runs today, maybe you can pick up the tools you need for this DIY:
Happy New Week and Welcome again to June! I know i did not finish up The 5 Series in the month of May – We’ve recently moved into our space and work has been work. To make up for this, I’ll be sharing a 6 things post today. If you’ve missed any of The 5 Series posts, just click the big, bold purple text HERE.
I am at a place in my life where there are a lot of decisions to be made. As you know, I recently got married to Husband Guy and we have been having a lot of conversations about life together. No, we did not just start having these conversations – this is like a checkup to know if we are still on the same page about things. Things like our faith, career paths, financials, education, and most importantly, children.
How’s it going?
We are continuing with the #SeriesOf5s for the month of May and so far, we are going strong. Trust me, having a theme makes blogging wayyyy easier. So far, we have looked at 5 Expensive Things and their #Alaroro counterparts and 5 recommendations to help your focus at work and the previous post in honour of Mothers everywhere, 5 ways to show your Mama love this season.
Well, it is a Monday and everyone who is doing Monday definitely needs #MondayMotivation – I will be sharing my top 5 TED Talks that have provided inspiration for me in my life journey. Before we dive in, who is TED and what doess TED talk about = Well, TED is a media organization which posts talks online for free distribution, under the slogan “ideas worth spreading”. TED was founded in February 1984 as a conference, which has been held annually since 1990. TED Talks are influential videos from expert speakers on education, business, science, tech and creativity. (as seen on Wikipedia)
How’s it going?
It’s the month of May – so there will be a lot of lists of 5s on the blog this month! If you missed the previous one, check here!
Today, we’ll be looking at five ways to stay focused on work in the midst of distractions – trust me, your colleague’s perfume can be a distraction!
Dream catchers and vision runners!
I am so excited about this, because my current space does not allow me to be free with magazines, scissors e.t.c… So, since I am at work early everyday, why not channel the free time before work starts into something productive?
You have and you have a view of what you want to achieve this year, right? Let’s get into it!
