When you see someone you perceive as being successful many times you put them on a pedestal. However, if you find yourself saying things like “ They are so blessed.” or “ if only I could be as smart as they are.” It’s time to check yourself.
The truth is everyone has their demons and while some may seem to have it all it doesn’t mean they are necessarily happy.
You are also unaware of what that person had to go through to become what you perceive as successful.
So the problem with doing this is that it lets you off of the hook. Telling yourself that someone is better or more capable than you gives you an excuse not to try.
However, when you begin to build your self esteem this will be a problem that will subside.
So instead of looking at your inferiority as an excuse you will be able to look at them as a model.
Maybe they spend time practicing more than you, maybe they get up earlier, watch fewer t.v.
Observe their behaviors but realize you have the ability not only to cultivate the same success but to also understand who you are so that when you get the success you desire you will also love the person behind the success.
