Imitation is Limitation - John Mason

Imitation is Limitation

If you are not you, then who are you going to be?

The person who walks in someone else's tracks never leaves his own footprints. The easiest thing in the world to be is to be you. The most difficult thing to be is what other people want you to be. Don't let them put you in that position.

Consider the following:

'My mother said to me, "If you become a soldier you'll become a general; if you become a monk you'll end up as the Pope." Instead, I became a painter and wound up as Picasso.'Picasso

Trust your own instincts. Your mistakes might as well be your own, instead of someone else's. Be yourself — who else is better qualified?
