The first and most important step: Stop comparing yourself.
Mark Twain put it best when he said: “comparison is the death of joy.”

We can focus on our own goals, review our personal mistakes and successes, and decide how our experiences can lead to positive change.
Speaking of positivity, optimism is fine, but be realistic about your goals. Otherwise, we’re likely to feel like we don’t measure up.
“You have to look at your resources and your personal situation and at the market to see if you can really move in the direction you want,” says John Vespasian, author of On Becoming Unbreakable: How Normal People Become Extraordinarily Self-Confident.
