Many designers suffer this fate. According to research, Imposter Syndrome affects 7 in 10 people at some point in their lives. It’s very common in high achievers and creatives.
Tanya Livesey gives great tips on how to deal with imposter syndrome:
- As you grow and move up, be flexible and adaptable as you’ll never know all the answers.
- Get a mentor. They can be a great support and inspiration.
- Our inner critical voice usually comes from trying to live up to someone as a child. Tell your inner voice to zip it.
- Spend more time looking outward rather than inward. Work on being less introspective.
- Be proud and embrace failure.
