Always be the first-rate version of yourself instead of being a second-rate version of someone else.
Imitating someone will take a lot of effort, time, and emotional investment. The person is constantly moving and changing and hiding.
A lot of people are wasting their valuable time in false hopes that they could be someone else — when that someone else is not even existing because she or he is made-up.
Striving to become the first-rate version of yourself is simple and easy and the result is immediate. You walk on your own; you do not chase someone’s shadow. Becoming the best person you ought to be is the heart of personal mastery.
