Imposter Syndrome

안녕하세요,

I was going thru my blog draft and I just notice I have yet to share this article where I found on Cleo Magazine for the month February 2017. The article is sharing about people with “Imposter Syndrome”. I am not a Psychologies of course and when I was reading the article I do not know what is Imposter Syndrome. So I went on Google to obtain more details.

People with imposter syndrome always have self-doubt that they are not good enough and always feel that whatever they do is wrong even though they are quite successful.  Valerie Young, a writer of The Secret Thoughts of Successful Women: Why Capable People Suffer From the Imposter Syndrome and How to Thrive in Spite of It, has categorised imposter patient into 5 subgroups:

  1. The Perfectionist
  2. The Superwoman/man
  3. The Natural Genius
  4. The Rugged Individualist
  5. The Expert

Read more in FastCompany.Com.

According to Forbes Online article, 70% of people have suffered the Imposter Syndrom including the writer. So I was wondering am I suffering from this syndrome because I always have self-doubt that I am not good and everything I do is always not perfect. However, if I look back the 5subgroups categories by Valerie Young, I don’t think I am in those categories. I guess mine is more of no confidence and no passion. =)

Forbes Online writer explains 4 ways to overcome the Imposter syndrome:

  1. Focus on the value you bring; not on attaining perfection
  2. Own your success. You didn’t get lucky by chance
  3. Cease comparison. They’re an act violence against oneself.
  4. Hold firm to ambition. Risk outright exposure.

Sometimes, is not easy to realise if we are the victim or not until 3rd party highlighted to us. Hope that people with Imposter Syndrome can escape from the Syndrome and be a happy person. Appreciate life with full of Love and Gratitude.

Roads That I am Going Thru Now

안녕하새요

I am going thru a loss and fighting moment. A moment where I am looking for my passion and my goal. Looking for the road that I want to arrive one day.

That is why I am hoping that one day I will be able to get the destination I want to. I am missing the Blue Mountain in Australia. Is beautiful and cooling. The feeling is so good after a long walk, we found this wonderful place.

I know my road path is not going to be easy, but I hope that difficult roads will lead to the beautiful destination.

Cultivate A Positive Energy (Photoblog)

안녕하새요,

I constantly reminding myself with my objective, which is searching for #MyColourfulLife. While searching, I realise one of the most important things is to cultivate positive energy.

I learn to use my photography and add in a positive quote to constantly remind myself to stay positive. I was reading through and article in Entrepreneur and the title was “10 Habits that will dramatically Improve Your Life“.

And one of the points that I love the most is “stay away from people who erode your quality of life” That is why I insert it into my nature and beautiful flower picture.

Negative Day Vs Positive Day

안녕하새요

Yesterday only I found out the reason behind White Valentine’s Day and is celebrated first in Japan in the year of 1978 and dated a month after Valentine’s Day.

I never understand the reason behind White Valentine but it reminds me of white colour. The white colour is always linked to pure, clean and positive. I remember capturing a photo of a white flower in Gardens By The Bay during my last trip to Singapore. Then, without waiting, I posted on my Instagram.

Today is my bad day. I accidently absorb the negative energy due to work. I never understand why a human being so scary. Their mind is full of bad intention. I seriously not sure do I still want to stay in the corporate world. I hate this scary world. They make me feel insecure because I am not sure when these bad intentions will drop on me. I feel very demotivated suddenly.

While feeling lost and negative, this photo pop up in my mind. It reminds me to stick to my objectives. Be kind, be positive, be simple and continue creating my colourful life. Never allow the negativity pull me down.

That is why I insert the Power of Positivity quote inside the photo and it has become my Mac wallpaper.

I need to ensure negativity stay away from me. Never give up!

 

Blue Day~~ (Photoblog)

안녕하새요

Another weekend ended. As usual, Monday is always being classified as “blue”.

Today is my Blue day too. Injured my leg after 10KM marathon run on last Saturday. Moving around is not convenient today. So today I will be doing more office task.

While going thru my photography, I was thinking why people always say “Monday Blue”. According to ColorMatters, Blue is embraced as a colour of heaven and authority. Most blues conveys a sense of trust, loyalty, cleanliness and understanding.

While reading further, then only I notice blue is symbolised as depression in American culture.  Now I know where Monday Blue come from.

But, in my opinion, I don’t feel the blue colour is that negative. Is nice and calm. Just like the blue flower. Feel so beautiful and sweet with the mixture of green. So Monday is not so blue anymore =) So, start searching my #ColourfulLife now…

My First Artwork

안녕하새요 제 이름은 안금패

I am not a creative person, I am also not an art person but I like art. I always very curious how all the art pieces being created. I am very impressed with people who can produce beautiful art.

So, I took a step ahead to take part time course to learn Illustrator. I couldn’t use hand to draw, so I use the system to draw an art.

Today I try to use illustrator to come out with bubble effect artwork. Not perfect, but I am happy for a start. I will never give up my Illustrator skill and also my Korean Language. So my first Artwork with my Korean Name.

Nothing is easy, as long as I stick with my objectives, I believe I will be able to do it.

Present for “Me” on International Women’s Day

안녕하새요,

Today is International Women’s Day and I have bought a present for myself which is signed up a web-design course. I am surprised that Job Street has ventured into educational field. That are offering an online course for Web Design. So I was thinking, why not since they have instalment payment for the course.

I know I will be busy with my wedding preparation, but in the same time, I am actually planning to expand my skills. I am searching for “Myself”. Have been a lost girl for 29 years, have been living for others for 7 years. Is time to live for me now.

Is not going to be easy because I am a slow learner, but I hope one day I will be able to find myself. Fuchiko x Hello Kitty will accompany my journey of searching.
