Problem number 1 is erroneously believing you deserve it.
- that ranking
- winning that match or getting that far
- selection for that team, squad, programme, school, institution
that life, experience, opportunity
This is a problem because you have not worked hard or smart enough to 'earn it' and you like the idea of it but are not prepared to really commit with the right attitude and energy to the goal. Or, you've constantly been told how good, talented, smart you are, but actually don't have the evidence to back it up and 'it' is seen an entitlement.
Problem number 2 is not believing your deserve it.
This is a problem because you are working your socks off and all the evidence points to the fact that you do deserve it but either background, self-belief or attitudes from you or those around you that say, 'that's only for the exclusive group'. If this is you, just ask yourself the question, 'if not you, who? If not now, when?'
