Quickly think of three fitness photographers other than myself. Got their names in your head? Good.

Now – would you say that these people have become successful in their careers? The answer is most likely yes if their names popped into your head quickly.

Now I have another question. Do you think that their success prevents me from having success in my own career?

Of course not!

Success does not impede upon success.

So the next time you see another model get a gig you wanted, or a talent book a campaign that you feel you wanted to do – realize that their success does not impede upon your own ability to succeed in what you want to do.
