Thought for Today: It is better to fail in originality than to succeed in imitation. Insist upon being yourself.

Thought for Today: It is better to fail in originality than to succeed in imitation. Insist upon being yourself.

In a world that is constantly trying to define who you are and who you should be, I say have the courage to be your authentic self and dare to be different. The world is already full of the ordinary. The beauty of living a life of authenticity is that even if you experience disappointment, what you gain is clarity, and with clarity comes conviction and true originality. What people must not forget is:Success is NOT final ANDFailure is NOT fatal The road to success and the road to failure are almost exactly the same. But it is through the hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrificing and most of all, the LOVE OF WHAT YOU ARE DOING, that puts you on the path to achieving success. So stay true to yourself, yet always be open to learn. Work hard, and never give up on your dreams, even when nobody else believes they can come true but you. These are not cliches but rather real tools you need no matter what you do in life to help you #movetheball forward. Don’t trade your originality and your authenticity for safety and comfort. In the end that will not lead to happiness but inexplicable grief.hashtag#Ownyourgame by embracing those things that make you unique and showcase your gifts to the world. Be that beautiful cupcake in a world full of frosting-less muffins (and sweeten someone else’s day in the process).
