We mustn’t settle for second best and yet that is exactly what we do, what some of us have always done. It’s not that we consciously set out to think about being second best, but it’s often how we see or treat ourselves.
When we undermine our abilities, when we undersell ourselves, when we allow others to think they’re better than us and when we allow others to control us, we’re settling for second best. When we also settle for things that undermine our abilities, we will end up settling for second best.
In the end, it’s that what we become, it’s what we expect from ourselves, it’s what we do.
