Sheila, Major and VDJ Space, has favor been conferred on you that you cannot tell anyone until you hold it and even then you feel as of you do not deserve it? It’s a good case of what the experts call Imposter Syndrome – a pattern of questioning your own abilities or accomplishments and believing they aren’t good enough. You may feel like a fraud, worry other people will discover you’re not as good as you seem, or believe you’re inferior even when evidence says otherwise)
He continued: For a public speaker, writer, Ambassador, father, creative economy champion ,music promoter ,MC, marketing genius, destiny connector – Kijana tu wa mtaa (a guy from the hood), you would think that I hold myself and my achievements highly but I battle with self daily, reminding myself that I am good enough and I am worthy of God’s favor,” said Big Ted in part.
