Hey Jessica, wow, I love this post :) You make such a valid point. It is ironic that in our efforts to be original, we’re the same as everyone else.
Lately I’ve been finding so much value in immersing myself in the successes of other people. For example, I re-write ads that were hugely popular back in the 20s. I read about the struggles of people that have achieved so much in their careers. By doing this, I feel inspired — and absorb the tiniest details that are easily overlooked.
It seems silly to ignore the sources of greatness around us and before us that can help us became our own version of awesome :)
Thanks for sharing Jessica!
