You might do this by creating a vision board with a picture that represents what you hope to achieve and following that with a series of actions you must take to achieve them. While the vision board looks to the future, having something you can look back on as a reminder of your past wins can be just as important.

    According to the Journal of General Internal Medicine, up to 82% people face feelings of the imposter phenomenon most commonly referred to as the imposter syndrome.
