Impostor Syndrome is that feeling in your gut that you just aren't good enough, qualified enough, smart enough, or *insert any feeling* enough. Basically, you're not enough. That is what the voice in your head is telling you. A dose of "you aren't ready", a dash of "how dare you", stirred together to make impostor soup.
I'm opening a jiu jitsu academy on January 1st, complete with judo and wrestling. Why does impostor syndrome sneak in? Because in my city I am surrounded by intelligent and accomplished black belts. I worry that someone will ask, "Why should I train with you, and not so and so?" I worry that people will think I am done with my own jiu jitsu journey. I worry that colleagues of mine at my own belt rank, or higher, will look at me and think, "How dare she."
