It’s only because they like me. I was in the right place at the right time. I just work harder than the others. I don’t deserve this. It’s just a matter of time before I am found out. Someone must have made a terrible mistake. If you are a working woman, chances are this inter­nal monologue sounds all too familiar. And you’re not alone. From the high-achieving Ph.D. candidate convinced she’s only been admitted to the program because of a clerical error to the senior executive who worries others will find out she’s in way over her head, a shocking number of accomplished women in all ca­reer paths and at every level feel as though they are faking it—impostors in their own lives and careers. While the impostor syndrome is not unique to women, women are more apt to agonize over tiny mistakes, see even constructive criticism as evi­dence of their shortcomings, and chalk up their accomplishments to luck rather than skill. They often unconsciously overcompensate with crippling perfec­tionism, overpreparation, maintaining a lower pro­file, withholding their talents and opinions, or never finishing important projects. When they do succeed, they think, Phew, I fooled ’em again. An internationally known speaker, Valerie Young has devoted her career to understanding women’s most deeply held beliefs about themselves and their success. In her decades of in-the-trenches research, she has uncovered the often surprising reasons why so many accomplished women experience this crushing self-doubt. In The Secret Thoughts of Successful Women, Young gives these women the solution they have been seek­ing. Combining insightful analysis with effective ad­vice and anecdotes, she explains what the impostor syndrome is, why fraud fears are more common in women, and how you can recognize the way it mani­fests in your life. With her empowering, step-by-step plan, you will learn to take ownership of your success, overcome self-doubt, and banish the thought patterns that undermine your ability to feel—and act—as bright and capable as others already know you are.

Do You Feel You Are Not as Smart, Skilled, or Talented as People Think You Are? Some of Hollywood's biggest names, such as Mike Myers, Jodi Foster, Don Cheadle, Bob Fosse, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Kate Winslet have gone on record stating that, despite their success, they feel as though they are frauds. Experts call this The Impostor Syndrome and afflicts over 70% of the population. The Impostor Syndrome is the underlying feeling that you are not as smart, skilled, or talented as people think you are. It's a dread that people will find out you are faking it. How do you know if you suffer from The Impostor Syndrome? In his book, "The Impostor Syndrome: How to Replace Self-Doubt with Self-Confidence and Train Your Brain for Success, John Graden outlines some possible indicators:" 1. Do you sometimes not speak up because you feel people will realize you're not as smart as they think you are? 2. Do you find it hard to accept praise? 3. Is it difficult for you to take credit for your accomplishments? 4. Do you feel like a fake and fear you are going to be found out soon? 5. Are you a perfectionist who is terrified of making a mistake? If any of these statements apply to you, you may suffer from The Impostor Syndrome. According to Graden, "This is the big, unspoken issue that holds so many people back. Every time I mention this to someone, the response is always, "Oh my God! That's me! You mean there's a name for it?" Experts have different theories on what causes The Impostor Syndrome. Some say it's psychologically based, while others feel it a cultural phenomenon. Graden says his interest is in helping people to overcome it, just as he did. Graden created the worlds' largest professional association and trade journal for the martial arts industry, and is widely credited with bringing the industry from the back alley to the boardroom, all while battling The Impostor Syndrome. Graden says. "I was watching TV many years ago, and I heard Paul Newman say, "I always have this feeling that someone is going to push through the crowd, grab my arm and say, It's over Newman.' It's all been a mistake " I knew right away what he meant because I had the same feeling. It wasn't until 20-years later, when I told that story at a seminar, someone told me that was The Impostor Syndrome." Graden now conducts seminars and workshops overcoming the self-doubt associated with The Impostor Syndrome.

A bestselling, groundbreaking author investigates successful long term marriages, interviewing wives and their uncensored strategies for staying married. America's high divorce rate is well known. But little attention has been paid to the flip side: couples who creatively (sometimes clandestinely) manage to build marriages that are lasting longer than we ever thought possible. What's the secret? To find out, bestselling journalist Iris Krasnow interviewed more than 200 wives whose marriages have survived for 15 to 70 years. They are a diverse cast, yet they share one common and significant trait: They have made bold, sometimes secretive and shocking choices on how to keep their marital vows, "till death do us part," as Krasnow says, "without killing someone first." In raw, candid, titillating stories, Krasnow's cast of wise women give voice to the truth about marriage and the importance of maintaining a strong sense of self apart from the relationship. Some spend summers separately from their partners. Some make time for wine with the girls. One septuagenarian has a recurring date with an old flame from high school. In every case, the marriage operates on many tracks, giving both spouses license to pursue the question "Who am I apart from my marriage?" Krasnow's goal is to give women permission to create their own marriages at any age. Marital bliss is possible, she says, if each partner is blissful apart from the other. A fascinating window on the many faces of modern relationships, The Secret Lives of Wives brims with inspiring and daring examples of women who have it both ways: a committed marriage and personal adventures in uncharted territory. For anyone who wants to stay married and stay sane, this is the book to read!
