People hover over you.
Give advice from their perspective.
Overreliance on others when the answer is to trust yourself.
Trust your instincts.
Self-help is an entire category of other people giving you their advice.
Real self-help is to rely on your own judgment.
You will fail sometime and succeed others – even Ted Williams, the best hitter in baseball, failed 60% of the time. It’s okay.
Learn from others, then you decide how to proceed.
Spend more time on your confidence, less on taking advice of others.
Learn patience to prevent panicking into quick fixes.
Being the best is not about being someone else’s best.
Depend on yourself not someone else.
