Intimidation Game!

How will people ever notice my work when I’m competing with such giants?

was a constant question in head. Ironically, I stumbled upon the answer in one of Nicolas’ posts. I realized two things —

  • Choice
    I had to make a choice between competing with mediocre writers (and being mediocre) and competing with the best writers (and striving to be the best). The choice was pretty obvious.
  • Perspective
    The people I was comparing myself with also started somewhere. They too had a journey, a realization and a transformation. Instead getting intimidated by these people, I realized that I need to draw inspiration from them.
