The Imposter Syndrome Remedy By E.V. Estacio
The Imposter Syndrome has it all. It starts out with definitions and goes through the theory of Imposter Syndrome, including the need to be perfect (we all know that one), leading up to a practical 30 day guide to ridding yourself of this insidious affliction.
I started making notes right at the beginning and didn’t stop until the end. Sometimes 3 or more on one page.
There is a free bonus offered in the first few pages which you really need by the time you get to the end to keep track of your actions. But it doesn’t end there. You get invited to join a Facebook group where you can get ongoing support from the author and heaps of people just like you who realise they need help. Reader communication. Very nice. Thank you.
My notes started with:
“To prevent being exposed as frauds, those with Imposter Syndrome will avoid tasks that could potentially expose gaps in their knowledge and skills.”
We learn about the PAME code to help us manage our symptoms. PAME stands for Purpose, Action, Momentum, Energy, and the book goes on to explain how this framework will help us all.
There are lots of little colour coded panels embedded within the text adding to the ease of reading, understanding and utilising the techniques to ensure you have every opportunity to come out the other end.
I loved the TLC acronym. T Is it True. L Is it Logical, and C Is it Constructive as a way to silence your inner critic.
Then we get to the truly interactive part of the book when we follow the 30 days to a better you. This is divine. Inspired. It follows the PAME route and is full of tests and important stuff you really need to beat this NASTY SYNDROME.
Great work. I would think we all need this book on some level.
