Stop competing with others.
Your purpose in this world is to get better every day. You are not here to beat others and to prove why you are better than others. Stop comparing yourself with others. Yes, that’s what is holding you back.
When you keep comparing yourself with others, you focus more on others than on yourself. Because you want to get better than them, without worrying about your skills and talents.
Focus on your skills, see in which area you are good at and what makes you unique. You don’t have to copy and follow others always. Sometimes, you have to look into yourself to figure out what you are capable of.
Of course, you can get inspired by others. But, never rely on others too much that you forget about your unique strength. You are unique and you are different, accept that.
Start accepting yourself.
Like said earlier, you are limited, you are unique and not perfect. That’s fine, as everyone is special on their own.
So don’t try to impress others or aim to be better than others. You have some specialties that make you unique. There must be something that you can do better.
Find that purpose of your life. See what makes you feel happy and confident inside.
Just because you have failed previously, doesn’t mean you are a failure in life. If you repeatedly fail at something, then believe that’s not what you are supposed to do. If possible quit something. Yes, quit what is not working for you.
That will open up more options for you to do something that you meant for you. Who knows that will help you to find your right path in life.
Know what you can do and what you can not. You are not supposed to figure out and do everything on your own.
So stop being a perfectionist and don’t try to change everything. Focus on something that you feel passionate about and do that for the rest of your life.
It’s perfectly fine when you have to accept your limitation and failure at something. That shows you at least have the desire to grow in life.
When you accept your failure, you are responsible to do something worthwhile. At least you are not fake, you are that genuine person who stays true to your own self.
Believe it or not, but you have the power to change your life. Stop that reserved thinking reminding you that you are not worthy. Stop holding yourself back, and start having more experiences and lessons from life.
Release yourself from any negative thinking, and you’ll see that you are way more capable than you think.
