The competitive New York market

People from all over the world come to New York hoping to fulfill their dreams. What I’ve realized after almost five years here is that by moving here, you are really increasing your own competition in whatever realm you are, as you are competing in a job or love market that is probably more cut-throat than anywhere else you could go. Extremely ambitious and attractive people come to New York with a goal, and they all want that dream fulfilled. Sometimes being here, I am reminded of how I felt in college – I came in thinking I was really smart, but there in the midst of some of the most intelligent women, I came to terms with my own mediocrity.
