Have you eaten the best pizza in the world? What about the best tacos? Have you listened to the best pianist in the world? Have you seen the best movie ever made? Do you live with the best person in the world? Have you seen the most beautiful sunset?
You get my point. I'm not the best writer in the world, but I can think of at least 20 people who love my blog—and that's enough for me. The term 'best,' therefore, is subjective. It is what you think of it. Which is why you shouldn't shy away from becoming really good at what you do. Sure, there will always be someone better than you at something, but you can still be the big fish in your small pond.
So stop compromising, stop settling for average, and stop trying to fit in. Because most of the time it's not talent that holds people back, it's fear.
