Successful People Have Struggles Too!

Take a Pause with Varun Duggirala

28-10-2022 • 3 mins

How many times have you seen a success story and thought to yourself, why not me? How many times have you compared yourself to someone else and thought about how easy their journey has been? Your journeys cannot be compared because the obstacles they had to overcome are far different than yours. Everyone has their own demons to fight, their own battles to win just like you. So, comparing your first few drafts to someone’s final masterpiece is a fruitless pursuit.

In this episode of Take APause, Varun talks about the folly of making comparisons and the struggles we don’t see.
