We may never be the best at what we do.
There will likely always be others who do it better.
There are a lot of people in this world and many are born more gifted, more privileged, or simply more driven than ourselves.
This is a fact of life.
Ignoring it, denying it, or pushing back against it will not change the truth of it.
Still, even with this being the case, there is no excuse for not trying our best, for not pushing ourselves to do better, and for not striving for steady, incremental improvement every day.
Others may be better at what we do than we are, but no one else can be who we are.
We must, therefore, make the most of our opportunity in this life and do the best we can with what we have to work with.
Anything less is a life wasted.
