You need to understand that everyone excels at a different pace and in different things. What works for you? What gets you all hyped up? It doesn’t need to be what others are doing. Do what you love for yourself and for your happiness and give yourself the credit for your accomplishments.
Be bold and confident. Take pride in your opinions and know that everyone sees things differently. Just because they disagree with your ideas doesn’t mean you are wrong.
