The New Stuff

Imitation is Fatal

God has a specific purpose in life for each individual. There is something which you are destined to accomplish, and you can accomplish that something better than anyone else. Therefore, "insist on yourself; never imitate. Your own gift you can present every moment with the cumulative force of a whole life's cultivation; but of the adopted talent of another, you have only an extemporaneous half-possession. That which each can do best, none but his Maker can teach him." ( Source:Thoughts that inspire). We live in a world where everyone THINKS that the life or business of another is better than their own. We don't consider the things that person or business has been through to get where they are. Tech journalist want every new start-up to be like someone else. Google+ was supposed to "kill" Facebook, because surely with 7 Billion people on earth, there was not room for both. After Steve Job's death, techies wanted to be him. They overlook the HEAVY price he paid before he became a tech god. Some might think they can skip the hard stuff and just take up his good habits, but did you consider it was the hard parts which helped shape him? Hmmm. As entrepreneurs, we know that we have something to offer the world. Think about it, the average person doesn't think like that. They just want a check and weekends off. So, because you are already thinking differently, how about acting differently by being yourself and not imitating the fairy tale you have in your head about someone else. The world needs you, not a copy of someone else.
