Do You Feel You Are Not as Smart, Skilled, or Talented as People Think You Are? Some of Hollywood's biggest names, such as Mike Myers, Jodi Foster, Don Cheadle, Bob Fosse, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Kate Winslet have gone on record stating that, despite their success, they feel as though they are frauds. Experts call this The Impostor Syndrome and afflicts over 70% of the population. The Impostor Syndrome is the underlying feeling that you are not as smart, skilled, or talented as people think you are. It's a dread that people will find out you are faking it. How do you know if you suffer from The Impostor Syndrome? In his book, "The Impostor Syndrome: How to Replace Self-Doubt with Self-Confidence and Train Your Brain for Success, John Graden outlines some possible indicators:" 1. Do you sometimes not speak up because you feel people will realize you're not as smart as they think you are? 2. Do you find it hard to accept praise? 3. Is it difficult for you to take credit for your accomplishments? 4. Do you feel like a fake and fear you are going to be found out soon? 5. Are you a perfectionist who is terrified of making a mistake? If any of these statements apply to you, you may suffer from The Impostor Syndrome. According to Graden, "This is the big, unspoken issue that holds so many people back. Every time I mention this to someone, the response is always, "Oh my God! That's me! You mean there's a name for it?" Experts have different theories on what causes The Impostor Syndrome. Some say it's psychologically based, while others feel it a cultural phenomenon. Graden says his interest is in helping people to overcome it, just as he did. Graden created the worlds' largest professional association and trade journal for the martial arts industry, and is widely credited with bringing the industry from the back alley to the boardroom, all while battling The Impostor Syndrome. Graden says. "I was watching TV many years ago, and I heard Paul Newman say, "I always have this feeling that someone is going to push through the crowd, grab my arm and say, It's over Newman.' It's all been a mistake " I knew right away what he meant because I had the same feeling. It wasn't until 20-years later, when I told that story at a seminar, someone told me that was The Impostor Syndrome." Graden now conducts seminars and workshops overcoming the self-doubt associated with The Impostor Syndrome.

Learn to take ownership of your success, overcome self-doubt, and banish the thought patterns that undermine your ability to feel—and act—as bright and capable as others already know you are with this award-winning book by Valerie Young. It’s only because they like me. I was in the right place at the right time. I just work harder than the others. I don’t deserve this. It’s just a matter of time before I am found out. Someone must have made a terrible mistake. If you are a working woman, chances are this inter­nal monologue sounds all too familiar. And you’re not alone. From the high-achieving Ph.D. candidate convinced she’s only been admitted to the program because of a clerical error to the senior executive who worries others will find out she’s in way over her head, a shocking number of accomplished women in all ca­reer paths and at every level feel as though they are faking it—impostors in their own lives and careers. While the impostor syndrome is not unique to women, women are more apt to agonize over tiny mistakes, see even constructive criticism as evi­dence of their shortcomings, and chalk up their accomplishments to luck rather than skill. They often unconsciously overcompensate with crippling perfec­tionism, overpreparation, maintaining a lower pro­file, withholding their talents and opinions, or never finishing important projects. When they do succeed, they think, Phew, I fooled ’em again. An internationally known speaker, Valerie Young has devoted her career to understanding women’s most deeply held beliefs about themselves and their success. In her decades of in-the-trenches research, she has uncovered the often surprising reasons why so many accomplished women experience this crushing self-doubt. In The Secret Thoughts of Successful Women, Young gives these women the solution they have been seek­ing. Combining insightful analysis with effective ad­vice and anecdotes, she explains what the impostor syndrome is, why fraud fears are more common in women, and how you can recognize the way it mani­fests in your life.

In the third book of the Nebula Award–nominated Arcadia Project series, which New York Times bestselling author Seanan McGuire called “exciting, inventive, and brilliantly plotted,” Millie Roper has to pull off two impossible heists—with the fate of the worlds in the balance. Three months ago, a rift between agents in London and Los Angeles tore the Arcadia Project apart. With both fey Courts split down the middle—half supporting London, half LA—London is putting the pieces in place to quash the resistance. But due to an alarming backslide in her mental health, new LA agent Mille Roper is in no condition to fight. When London’s opening shot is to frame Millie’s partner, Tjuan, for attempted homicide, Millie has no choice but to hide him and try to clear his name. Her investigation will take her across the pond to the heart of Arcadia at the mysterious and impenetrable White Rose palace. The key to Tjuan’s freedom—and to the success of the revolution—is locked in a vault under the fey Queen’s watchful eye. It’s up to Millie to plan and lead a heist that will shape the future of two worlds—all while pretending that she knows exactly what she’s doing…
