“One reason we struggle with insecurity: we’re comparing our behind the scenes to everyone else’s highlight reel.”
– Steven Furtick
Like a lot of you, when I look at some other people’s lives they really seem to have it together and have everything going for them and, even if just for a fleeting moment, I often feel inadequate in comparison.
But then occasionally you get a glimpse below the surface and realise that not everything is as perfect as it seems. They are just like us or perhaps even more inadequate, insecure, or incapable.
In a personal sense, they probably struggle with the same issues we do with their relationships and families. In a business sense, people have a tendency to only share their successes and achievements because they perceive that revealing their weaknesses will reduce their credibility.
So when you’re feeling that way and starting to doubt yourself, remember that you are probably just seeing the best bits of other people’s lives. Their daily grind is most likely just the same as, or even harder, than yours.
