1 of 5

Whilst many tend to underestimate the competition and subsequently lose out against stronger competitors, others overestimate them. Overestimating your competition can cause you to feel like you are not able to compete or to succeed against them, which in turn can create obstacles to you reaching your career goals in life. In Rocky IV, Rocky has to fight Ivan Drago, a Russian boxer who was taller and far heavier than Rocky. Despite the obvious unfair advantage Ivan had, Rocky never overestimates his opponent and believes he can win regardless (and of course, he does!)

Rather than give up and cave to the pressures of the corporate world around you, it is important that you power forward and strive to succeed in whatever you do best.
