To All The Ones Who Aren’t Good Enough

We’re living in a world where competition is high and we compare ourselves with each other. Even though each and everyone of us is unique in our own ways, we couldn’t help ourselves to think if we’re better than them. Often times we’ll find ourselves in situation where we’re faced with the ugly truth— we’re just not good enough.

There’s always going to be someone better than us in this world but if you want to be the best you have to put in work and dedication. Being the best takes time, and it also takes a lot of failures. There are a lot of rejections along the way but not being good enough is not a sign of being a failure, it is a phase from becoming the best.

If we ever go back to our past failures and rejections, we now know better. We are not good enough back then because we didn’t have the experience and wisdom but if we go back knowing the things we know now, we’re more than good enough back then. We are all born to be good enough, we were just in the wrong place at the wrong time. We just didn’t have all the tools yet at that certain time. We just needed time to gain experience and wisdom.

  1. Exactly. I strongly agree with this. Such a great post, Joana! Wisdom and experience comes from a lot of factors, mistakes, chances that we take, in life. It’s why they call old people as the ones with wisdom. Because they have been through a lot. And although–the very easily discouraged lady that I am–I think that there is a struggle of convincing ourselves that we are every bit of enough, it’s only as real as our thoughts have made it to be. But I think I have to add though, that no matter how we fail of doing something we truly want, I think, it doesn’t define us and our worth as humans, hence suggesting that we should not say “we are not good enough,” only saying that maybe it is not for us or that we have to try harder, sometimes try more than what other people offer, but never not good enough. We are completely as capable as them, as those people who succeed in what they do. Thank you for sharing this wonderful post. xx

    • Thank you so much for this insightful comment. And yes I agree with you about things that aren’t for us, sometimes even if we try so hard if it’s not meant for us it will never be.


  2. Yep, yep and yep!!
    “Being the best takes time, and it also takes a lot of failures” 🙌🏽🙌🏽

    This is such a motivational post. Thank you for sharing, this year especially a lot of us are feeling not good enough.


  3. Great post, Joana! Everyone that’s reached the top has had to face some sort of failure along the way – they just don’t give up! Steve Jobs was fired from the company he started! He is my forever inspiration in life. 🙂


  4. I always try to remember that there is always going to someone better than me but that doesn’t dim my light just because they are better. I also remember that I am unique and so is my journey. Great Post💝
