It's tough. Many people still get it even with years of experience. One thing that helps for me is focussing on self improvement outside of work. For example, exercising, eating healthy, reading more books. If you're more confident outside of work, you will naturally start to feel more comfortable in work.

So no scientific answer to this one, I just keep going and try to ignore it.

I accept that there are better and worse than me and then just pick myself up and push on trying to make myself better every day.
