You never really know until you give it a go. Get out there and prove yourself. It's called distinguishing yourself from the crowd. You may have thoughts your feeding yourself that sound like this, "But I'm different." Or "I'm not as good as the others." They are the exact reasons to go for it. If you have something different to offer then fabulous! Different is what distinguishes you. On the other hand if your lack of confidence is keeping you from proving yourself that is the reason you shouldn't compare yourself to others because you aren't looking to be just like the others you are looking to be 'you' and be discovered for who you truly are - the more you put "you" out there, the more you build your strengths through your efforts. Keep in mind success isn't overnight. Success is built on a series of achievements.
