It’s natural, downright human, to sometimes feel like a fraud. The whole trick is to not let that get in your way. Sure, having some self doubt is healthy but having so much that you never do anything is destructive.
Jason’s post shows some deep reflection on the nature of doubt and how we always think that someone else is better, smarter or more in tune than we are. The truth is, most successful people are full of doubt. It’s what drives them to be better. Without a healthy sense of “how can I do this better” or “what if I’m not an expert”, you will never get better.
The best take away for me is this line:
“If I don’t feel like a fraud at least once a day then I’m not reaching far enough.”
Feeling like a fraud means you are pushing your limits. This does not mean you lie or cheat about what you know. It’s about that inner drive. The one that reminds you that you really are a fraud until you prove it to yourself otherwise.
