Where does the pressure to succeed come from?
We often talk about the pressure social media puts on us to succeed but what about the pressure we put on ourselves?
Admittedly, the pressure we put on ourselves will in part come from seeing other peoples achievements online, but I think there’s another layer to it, too.
We put pressure on ourselves because we know we’re capable of achieving things.
We know we’ve got the potential to do good shit.
But there’s just something stopping us from taking that leap usually it’s confidence or, at least, it was for me.
But once I realised I wasn’t expected to achieve it ALL straight away, I could work on chipping away at things that would help me get there in the end.
Putting pressure on yourself can sometimes be a good thing.
But don’t let it be all-consuming. (c)
