Believe in yourself. And each time that you’re tempted to either look at what others are doing or imitate them – STOP. Ask yourself: “Did that person achieve what they did by imitating others? Or did they become a leader in their field by believing in themselves?”
While it is okay to learn from others and have role models – it is not okay to discredit your view of the world around you.
Believe in yourself. Really, really believe in yourself.
