An imitation game
This reminds us of a quote you may be familiar with, from Oscar Wilde: “Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery". 👭
👗 Maybe you first heard it at 10 years old when you complained to your parents about how your best friend copied and got the same dress as you for the year 6 disco..
🗒 Or your partner repeatedly uttered it back to you when a colleague ripped off your project concept...
🙄Or you runs round and round your mind when you watch someone else make money off an idea you created yourself many moons ago..
But what is less known is the full quote this comes from..“Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery that mediocrity can pay to greatness.”- Oscar Wilde. 🙃
Always be original. Always be authentic. Thats what makes YOU special, unique and different. That is what sets you apart from the crowd. Run with that. Don't take others work, don't follow the heard - don't be a sheep! 🙅🏻♀️🐑
