Establish your credentials

It is probably true that you have just as good a set (of jokes) as the popular comedian that gets called to headline every show, while you have to pitch yourself every time (and be rejected often). But that doesn't mean the world is unfair. It only means you haven't established that you have just as good a set as the popular comedian yet.

It is probably true that you can do the job just as well as the person heading your organization and that you are just as smart. But you haven't established your credentials like she has.

It is probably true that you are just as good a writer as JK Rowling or Stephen King when it comes to fiction. But you haven't established your credentials as they have.

You get the idea.

Being good or having the skill isn't enough. It is necessary, but it isn't enough. What's also needed is to establish your credentials.

So go establish your credentials and stop calling foul.
