The achievements of others does not mean that you are failing

Society places so much emphasis on success that it prevents many of us from pursuing our dreams and what makes us truly happy. We are often made to believe that there is a manual that we must follow and that if we are not keeping up with others, then we are failing.

We have grown up with the idea that “being successful” is the same for everyone from finding a partner, to having children or a business of our own that leaves us large amounts of money.

Perhaps you are at a point in your life where you feel stuck because you have not married, you have not had children or you are not starting as your friends. Around you you see how everyone changes jobs and you continue in the same and while some are paying for graduate degrees, you are only in dance or yoga classes. Do not detract yourself, everyone has their interests and each one seeks to satisfy their personal needs in their own time and way.

Nobody likes to feel outside or that they are lagging behind the rest but I will tell you something: the achievements of others does not mean that you are failing. If getting married, having children, traveling or a business of your own do not satisfy you or are not absolute happiness for you, why feel bad if you do not get it?

Fear of failure it paralyzes you, blocks you and stagnates you and much of this comes from that social pressure that puts too many expectations In what we should be

Our human nature leads us to fear embarrassment and therefore, we stop doing things to avoid the possibility of failure. But it’s worse when we strive to meet someone else’s definition of success.

Sure, there are universal successful habits: consistency, hard work, and sacrifice, but there is more. Everyone has their own path in life. You are comparing yourself to people who have a completely different life than you. The definition of happiness, success and fulfillment is different for everyone. It is time for you to stop concentrating on what others are doing and above all, It is time for you to stop living looking to meet other people’s expectations.

When you compare yourself to others, you lose focus on your thing, you get discouraged and you start to believe that you are not doing well. Forgive yourself for your mistakes and learn to see every little step as an achievement.

Anyone who wants to do things of value in life will fail

Being afraid of failure is normal but you shouldn’t let it hold you back. Setbacks are inevitable but necessary to some extent to teach us how to move forward. We often only hear about people’s successes, but the road to those milestones often has many setbacks. And it’s not that we constantly seek to see where others are failing, but rather that it often serves as inspiration and impetus. Learn from them and take action.

Remember: you are not a failure just because you stumbled

When you have stumbled, it is very easy to start thinking that you will always fail in this area of ​​your life. It’s easy to start thinking that YOU are a failure. Don’t worry, it’s just a setback and you can’t assume that everything you do will be like that. Just because you have failed does not mean that you will fail next time or for the rest of your life.
