Our confidence levels drop when we are focussed more on what others are doing or when we compare ourselves unfavourably or excessively with other people who appear to be more successful than we are.
By comparing ourselves to others, we get into a “competitive” or a “giving up” mindset, instead of a “creative” mindset.
Recognising your unique strengths and focussing on those will help your self-esteem.
Comparing yourself with others will do the opposite.
So spend less time looking outside and spend more time looking inside.
Don't worry about what others are doing and start investing more time in working on your own passions, goals and mission.
Then watch as your confidence soars.
