Operating at the edge of your ability means at times you will inevitably feel like an imposter. It’s a universal experience that complete beginners to seasoned experts share. To take it one step further, I would argue that imposter syndrome is a critical ingredient to the formula of mastery; self-awareness and an accurate understanding of one’s skills foster growth, while too much self-doubt can be restraining and counter-productive.
In today’s episode I field two audience questions on the Daily Creative YouTube show. In the first question we get into dealing with imposter syndrome. I share some tactics and mindset tricks that will help cope with this. Second, we talk about leveraging unique opportunities into professional growth. What should you do once you have a foot in the door? Especially in a competitive space like the music industry, it’s important to think strategically and creatively about how to parlay the opportunity into the next steps in your career.
