"I think if you spend all your time scrolling & comparing yourself to other people, you're going to consistently feel discouraged and like you're "never going to make it." That's just not true. If you take that same time and energy into developing those skills and working on your own projects, as you do in comparing yourself to others, you'll definitely be successful."
"Put your head down & stop comparing yourself to everyone else. Especially when you're starting out, it's really easy to see the people who have 100k followers, 500k followers, 1M followers and think, "wow, I'll never be there." But everybody starts somewhere."
