Undervaluing yourself when everyone around you is skilled

When you are surrounded by all superstars, it can be hard to see how far you’ve come.

When a rookie comes along, it may be a reminder of how much you’ve grown and how well you can do.

It’s possible that at this moment, you are undervaluing yourself because by a chance of fate, you’ve been lucky enough, or unlucky enough, to be surrounded by great people in your field or skill. This is akin to watching everyone at the olympics. Every olympian is really good at what they do, some are just a bit better to win medals. However, go watch the average Joe at a ski hill rather than the Olympic skiers, then you’ll truly see how the Olympians skills stack up.

It’s easy to mistake your value when you don’t seem to stand out against those you are surrounded by. Ask yourself, am I surrounded by greatness?
