I love when people underestimate me.
In fact, I absolutely thrive in situations which I can tell that another person does not believe I'll succeed.
This isn't due to arrogance. It is only due to the fact that I know I won't fail. (Sounds arrogant, I know. But let me explain.)
Failure is subjective, meaning you create your own definition of failure. If ever I fall short of something I told myself, or others, I would accomplish - it is simply a learning experience. I'll get up, dust myself off, and try again. The issue in our common ideology lies within the fact that we let others define our failure, or rather, our success. For some reason, a task is only considered a success when we benchmark it against others and realize that we did better than them. If we did not do better than them, we've failed.
It is because I choose to only compare myself to the person I was yesterday, that I know I won't fail. I am ALWAYS better than who I was yesterday.
So what is my definition of failure? I don't have one.
Rather than failing, I learn. I GROW.
I don't have time to compare my successes to yours. I don't have time for you not believing in me, because I believe in myself.
I don't have time for failure.
