Have you ever felt like you didn’t fit in, or felt the fear of being discovered as not being up to the task in your professional life? Most people, even very successful people, have had a nagging doubt in their mind saying, “Maybe I don’t know this as well as someone else. Maybe I don’t deserve my success.”
The fear of being seen as unfit for your job keeps many women from speaking out. Sharing your fears with other women will enable them to share theirs as well. Accepting yourself as who you are is important in overcoming this and fully participating in life.
