Doubt — Imposter Syndrome. Feeling that you are unqualified, that you are an imposter, a pretender, acting like you know what you are doing.

Solution: Vulnerability. Find out about the insecurities of people you admire. Imposter Syndrome is everywhere. There is no shortage of examples. AND share your vulnerabilities because this makes them lose their (paralyzing) power. A voiced insecurity is powerless.
//

Guilt — Not deserving of success.

Solution: Give back; pay it forward, teach. You will buy yourself a clear conscience and along the way realize that you deserve your success.
//

Reality — Success doesn’t feel as good as imagined.

Solution: Instead of always going for more, stop moving the goalposts on yourself and find, new, different goals. Mark the accomplishment, bring closure to the goal and you will enjoy the success more.
