Impostor syndrome hits us all at some time.

In my earlier career as a pro piano-player, I’d sit in the company of other musicians and think, what am I doing here?

These guys are so much better players than me.

What if I get found out?

And yet, at the end of every gig, the same thing would happen.

They’d be telling me how much they enjoyed playing with me, hustling me to stay in touch and join them again sometime soon.

I often thought, if only I’d known that before we started, I’d have really enjoyed myself tonight. 


Here’s the news.

You’re already good enough.

In fact, you’d be even better if you stopped fretting about it and just showed up.
