What to Do When You Feel Like a Fake; Impostor Syndrome in Business

Picture this; you've just landed your first big business contract; family, friends and colleagues are patting you on the back and singing your praises.

It’s saying something along the lines of:

"I can't believe they picked me! I'm not even that smart; other people could do the job better!"

No one is immune to the emotional issues we are facing.

I was speaking to a friend of mine who lives alone, and she was telling me that since the pandemic she has been feeling very low emotionally, and even feeling depressed when she wakes up. I gave her a few tips on mindfulness, and how she can add these simple tips along with tapping to achieve emotional freedom.
