“Always remember that you are absolutely unique. Just like everyone else.”- Margaret Mead.
We are all born unique. Even twins who look-alike are unique. Different thoughts, different tastes, different habit, different reactions, different likes and dislikes make us unique. We are unique then why there is a need to copy others.
I like the dialogue in FAN movie where Aryan Khanna explains his fan to do something unique and live life rather than copying someone.
It is absolutely fine to have an idol, in fact it is important to have one. Idols are inspiration, they motivate us to achieve our goals, they help us to dream and make us believe that dreams do come true. They teach us the importance of hard and smart work. But we should not try to become a carbon copy of them. We should have our own originality, in whatever we do. Even if you copy someone, you won’t be appreciated or remembered. There cannot be second Sachin, there cannot be second Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, there cannot be second Sharukh Khan. Because they are original. Follow your idol’s footsteps with your own way. Learn the techniques and add your unique flavour in it.
Be grateful that you are unique. You are different from others. Find your talent, find where does your uniqueness lies and work on it.
“You are unique. Don’t be a follower. Be a LEADER,”- Unknown
