We are all impostors

It's cool to feel like an impostor. At least it's what it seams!

Impostor syndrome it's when a high-achieving individual does't recognise himself the value for his success and has a persistent fear of being exposed as a "fraud".

I know that there are a lot of people that suffer from impostor syndrome and it is a bad thing. But I believe that we are all impostors, that we all have felt, at any time of our life, that the work that is receiving lots of compliments from our peers it's not the best work we could have done and that we are not happy with it!

But it´s also that feeling that moves us forward and makes us keep improving our work.

But now it seams that feeling like an impostor is something cool. It isn't, impostor syndrome its not a buzz word, and if you are telling everyone "poor me I feel like an impostor!..." you probably are one but from a different kind. A worst kind where you say it only to fit in. Don't do that! People will start to look at you as a real fraud.
