We forget that social media is filtered, planned, photo-shopped virtual realities. We measure ourselves and our achievements to a standard which, in real life, is unachievable. And by doing this, we set ourselves up for a fall and fail because we never even try.
I always find myself wondering about the successful people – it seems that some people got very lucky and caught all the big breaks. But this is not the truth, far from it actually. We only see the success and have no idea what it took to get there. I also quickly discovered that the most successful and happy people usually have one trait in common – they are ABLE to adapt easily.
