When it comes to creativity, individuality, and authenticity, the best way to kill it is to worry about what other people are up to; To compare oneself and one’s projects to someone else’s; To compare your dance and your flow to another’s flow; To compare your beautiful, unique painting style to someone else’s.
A few years back in a yoga class, the teacher said, “keep your eyes on your own mat,” and it really stuck with me. In any movement or creative practice, it is never helpful to look at someone else’s biznass and compare it to your’s. Admiring it is another story :)
Once in a while, it’s a great idea to take a break from looking around the internet at what others are up to, and go create something beautiful instead of consume someone else’s creation. We were born to create. What does your soul want to bring forth?
