A: You are not your job. This actually helped me tremendously when I was starting to feel inadequate at work. I know it sounds the opposite of what should motivate a person, but it really helped me with insecurities I was feeling and it all stemmed from my job. Realizing that I am not defined by my job helped me look holistically at my career and, more important, my interests.
