Why do we always measure our success, worth and value to others accomplishments or failures? Could it be because the world is always more attractive when we see the final product? Maybe; but the truth is that most people will never start their journey because they don’t want to be seen starting at the bottom.
You & I Against the world
In mass media, work environments, culture, etc. we are taught to be hyper-competitive and the “best” of the group, while weeding out the bad. Instead of accepting everyone and becoming a collective; with ideologies like this, is it a surprise that we struggle with our own insecurities? Due to the fear of isolation and rejection? I think not…
The first step to expanding your reality is to discard the tendency to exclude things from possibility– E.E. Cummings
For these specific reasons I feel it is very important to know yourself and know your worth. When you liberate yourself from society and create your own identity you will be free to enjoy your life and appreciate others without feeling intimidated. I am a firm believer that we are the creator of our own destiny and happiness, and with the help of perseverance, consistency and will power there is nothing out of our reach.
Don’t be afraid
The first step is believing in yourself and choosing not to be imprisoned by negativity. Never let someone else’s limitations or perceptions influence what is possible in your life, relationships or personal growth. The only person you should try to be better than, is the person you were yesterday to see if you’ve become better than you were before. It doesn’t matter what others are doing, what matters is what you are doing and the process that got you there!
Take the risk and believe in yourself for once, your future self will thank you so much for it later! I truly hope this post helps you see yourself in a new light. You deserve it!
