You Are the Competitive Advantage
Stop looking elsewhere. Look inward and create what only you can.
“Great things are not accomplished by those who yield to trends and fads and popular opinion.” — Jack Kerouac
The same competitive advantage exists within each of us.
Be yourself, create publicly and never fear being outdone. There is no outdoing YOU. Only you know the recipe. Try as they may, others can never be a better copy of you.
You are an original. One of a kind. Priceless!
Your past work can be copied. It can even be modeled with derivative works. But there is no predicting where you are going next. The only key lies deep within you, inaccessible to everyone else. It is your unique perspective.
There is no expiration on your creative potential.
No one is going to beat you to market. You never need wonder if another train is coming ‘round. YOU are the train. And this train never quits!
Do not obsess over others.
Learn from them. Engage with them. Delight in their creations. But never forget your own work. Make it a priority. Invest in it. Your dreams deserve to see reality, and you are the only one who can bring them to life.
Unleash your creativity.
Break all of the rules. Upend conventional wisdom. Ignore the naysayers. Be a world builder. Anything is possible when your creative spark is set free. It will do what is only natural. Create!
The expectations of others no longer confines you. Self imposed limits disintegrate as you achieve escape velocity. The only thing remaining is you and your creativity. It is time for you to soar among the heavens.
Welcome home, fellow Creator!
🤔 Food for Thought:
Are you afraid of being your true self in public?
Are you allowing the dreams of others to take precedence over yours?
Are you still playing by someone else’s rules?
⚙️ One Small Step:
Stop worrying about missing the next big thing. Do you not know? YOU are the next big thing. Once you stop obsessing over others, you remove their power over you. Their rules no longer apply to you. Your creativity is now unbounded.
