The Impostor Syndrome IQ Matrix explores what it means to fall prey to the impostor syndrome and how to overcome it. The Impostor Syndrome is a common experience that affects high achievers. These people have achieved a high degree of success, so why is it that they feel like frauds and undeserving of the success they have achieved? Well, in their mind, they are only successful because of fortunate circumstances, opportunities, or dumb luck. They believe things to be out of their direct control. In other words, their success has nothing to do with their intelligence or aptitude. As a result, they question their abilities and this keeps them from realizing their full potential.

A mind map, of course, does this beautifully because it mirrors the synaptic connections made in your brain as you try to establish new habits of thought and behavior. It brings together key concepts and ideas that help your brain to fully integrate and process this information. The brain, subsequently, rewires itself as it attempts to establish new habits of mind. It’s an ideal tool for creating lasting change and transformation.
As you progressively work through this map you will start to gain more confidence in yourself and your ability. You will no longer suffer from chronic self-doubt but will rather embrace all that you have accomplished. Likewise, you will embrace your flaws and weaknesses and move forward with more confidence and self-belief that you are deserving of the success you have achieved.
