IDEA EXTRACTED FROM:
Your work is a reflection of you. If you want something different: improve yourself.
If you're not getting the results you're looking for, stop looking for better strategies. Instead, look inside. Try to continuously improve yourself, by expanding your vision, skills, and abilities.
You need to put yourself into positions that create immense pressure. The kind of pressure that will either make or break you.
This is how you purge out your weakness and small-mindedness. It won't be pretty. But it will change you.
If you're following someone else's tracks, where do you think those tracks will lead you? To your own destination or to theirs?
If you don't know who you are, you'll always try to be someone else. And thus, you'll never be the best. Your work will always be a cheap imitation. It will lack the feeling that produced the work or the idea.
When you are in love with the process, you seek feedback, mentoring, and coaching , even when you're at the top of your game.
You surround yourself with people who aren't afraid to tell you the truth. You avoid people who suck-up and only tell you what they think you want to hear.
Don't throw your value-systems out the door in hopes of quick success.
The moment you start compromising, you won't stop compromising.

Do something you find totally engaging, to the point you lose track of time.
