You are the last person on this earth with those fingerprints and those ideas.
If we need Ashley from Arizona to help us, we’ll call her. If we need Tom who lives in Texas, we’ll call him. But we need you. Do not waste time chasing what you may not need in life.
You should study what others do and learn from them, maybe even mimic for a while to gain a better understanding, but never share it as your own. There is a line between practicing and copying because your version will never be exact. It isn’t supposed to be.
The book you want to write has your name embossed on the cover because those are your words within it. Your calling is not a replica of another person’s. Comparing what you have or haven’t done is the quickest way to lose. Your lane is custom made. Stay in it.
