“My biggest struggle right now is that I have been given opportunities that the vast majority of people wouldn’t even dream of having; I have been given every resource I need to be successful. But I don’t feel like I am fulfilling the expectations I set on myself. Instead, I am content with being average. I lack the impulse in me to be the best at the things I say I’m good at.  I am good at something by my own standards,
but that doesn’t mean that the rest of the world will think the same.”
