Ovunque ti giri sui social puoi notare come il successo o l’ apparente successo sia argomento di rilievo in ogni ambito. Tutto ciò, se da un lato aiuta tante persone a trovare la motivazione, dall’ altro sembra dare vita a un mondo in cui non è concesso sbagliare, tanto meno fallire. Pertanto, la prossima volta che paragoni te stesso a quel post su internet, ricorda:”Nessuno posta i propri fallimenti.”
Everywhere you look on social media you can notice how success or the apparent success is the relevant topic in every field. All of this, if from one hand help people to find their strengths, from the other hand seems to create a world where it is not allowed to make mistakes, much less to fail. Therefore, next time you compare yourself to that post on the net, remember:“Nobody is posting their failures.”
