Why You Should Not Compare Yourself To The "Gurus"  

Updated: Aug 2, 2019

Hey yall! Thanks for taking some time out and reading today's blog. I just wanted to write this as a reminder to myself and also to you who keep doubting your talents.

So I am 26 years old, I'm so scared of being 30 and not accomplishing what I thought I would have already. I keep having to tell myself that things happen at a pace, and just because I am not where I thought I would be at, doesn't mean I'm anything less of myself.

When I get on Instagram and see 16 or 17 year olds with thousands of followers who are creating these amazing realistic portraits, I tend to tell myself that "I'm not that good compared."

That is far from it though. I have my own style, my own supporters, and even if I don't have thousands, the approval of others shouldn't effect how I feel about myself. So just keep being yourself, whether you are a musician, photographer or a painter. Keep at it, when you have days of doubting your progress just remember that if you don't put yourself out there and keep on trying then you will stay where you are at. The process is long and hard and this is a big world with people who are just as talented. Your work ethic will be the one thing that pushes you over the people who are doing nothing with their blessings.

Thanks for reading my run on sentences! God bless!
