Lessons They Don’t Teach You In School

3. Compete to succeed:

Have you ever thought if you’re viewed as the best in your profession? I’m guilty of this, because I sometimes wonder if others appreciate my effort. Yet, it didn’t really matter because I enjoy working and giving my best in every endeavor I choose to undertake. In the beginning, working with some of the successful people in the industry was intimidating and I felt unworthy being there. Every day I’d feel intimidated as I watch them achieve success further after another, while I felt like I was still where I began. It took some of their wisdom and my other mentors’ advice that these successful people should be my models for success, and I should not compete with them. While it’s alright to be ambitious, we should also remember that the measure of our own success lies within us.
