Outstanding post as usual dude.
You are absolutely right. Too often, we want to be “like mike” or someone else that we aren’t. It’s okay to be inspired by someone, but try as we might, we will never be that person. That’s why I love this quote by Oscar Wilde – “Be yourself, everyone else is taken”
We have all the tools at our disposal that makes us uniquely individual. When we start realizing that we are indeed unique is when we can appreciate ourselves.
