This quote mirrors the detriments of being a perfectionist, particularly that last sentence. Something I’ve personally struggled with a lot in life.
If there was ever one piece of advice I could give the new upstarts, including my past self, it would be to take so much pride in every little milestone you reach. No one becomes a millionaire overnight, and without putting in a ton of effort.
Stop comparing everything you do to someone who’s already done it and their success. You’ve got your whole life to make it, find your own voice.
