Excelling is Optional
The path of least resistance is the path most people decide to follow.  Naturally, we are lazy creatures.  We’re wired to conserve energy-both by expending less (moving less) and storing more (fat on your body)-so that we don’t starve to death if we can’t get more food. These were critical adaptations that kept us alive during harsh periods of existence.
Fortunately, for most of us today, we don’t have to worry about how or when we’ll get our next meal.  Unfortunately, this wiring is still prominent and leads most of us to do far less than we’re capable of doing. 
If we want to excel at anything, we have to overcome our natural tendencies to be lazy and we have to consciously decide, not just once, but over and over again to do more work than is necessary for survival.  This is why excelling is so hard and is reserved for the few who are willing to do more than the rest.
Believe in Yourself
You are perfect.  To think anything less is as pointless as a river thinking that it’s got too many curves or that it moves too slowly or that its rapids are too rapid.  There are no wrong twists or turns.  There is just being.  And your job is to be as you as you can be.  This is why you’re here.  To shy away from who you truly are would leave the world you-less.  You are the only you there is and ever will be.  Do not deny the world its one and only chance to bask in your brilliance.
