The Fraud Factor
Recognize It. Overcome It.
Bruce E. Roselle
Just like you, on some level, in certain situations, every person feels like a fraud. Does that surprise you? Even the most successful and confident individuals find themselves in settings where they begin to think that someone else would have been a much better choice to handle their duties. In this book, the word 'fraud' means feeling inauthentic, like a phony or charlatan in a particular situation that, in your mind, requires you to pretend to be someone very different than who you really are at the core. The most effective individuals function genuinely from their core personality, abilities, motivators, and beliefs; they get into trouble when they stray too far from that core. This book uses stories of real people to illustrate the problem, and then suggests a strategy for getting real again. Stop feeling like a fraud, and start being the person you were meant to be-read this book!
