Thanks, Jordan! Comparing myself with others is what I struggle the most with as well. I agree that there is a strong link to ambition and wanting more from all the hard work we do every day.

If you are in your position because you weaseled your way in, you're an impostor.
Everyone else should shed any feelings of the sort!

That's a great way to approach the problem. Being insecure might make it a little harder to think like that but I like the straightforwardness!
