It’s a season of transition for many of my friends. They are looking for jobs, beginning new jobs, or trying to figure out if the job they have is the right one. With those changes and uncertainties, doubt often comes. Why will no one hire me? What if I’m not good enough for the job I’ve taken? What if I can’t do the job as well as I’d like?
A wise friend and teacher wrote to me when I was experiencing similar doubts:
“All the best in any field consistently feel like frauds, fakes, poseurs. It’s true. I hear this over and over from artists, singers, actors, certain leaders, great teachers: they doubt and so they keep working to address and mend that doubt, all of which prepares them to do or be the thing they did not think they were.”
