Constantly remind yourself that success is just a journey and not a destination and so you don't have to be perfect. Always thinking that you should be somewhere you're not leads you to comparing yourself with everybody else. Realize where you are at and adjust to what you can or can't do.

This will do you more harm than good. Realize that you can't be all things. Constantly purpose to learn and try out new things. Do not be afraid to make mistakes.
