I’m not sure who said this first, but it’s so true. I saw Lindsey Stirling, the dancing violinist, on TV the other day saying, “I was told I’m not marketable because I’m so different. But I travel all around the world and people love my music. So the very reason they thought I would not make it is the reason that I’m successful. It’s kind of ironic. So don’t be afraid to be different.” (Note: This is NOT verbatim!)
So don’t imitate others or change yourself just to be accepted. Do your own thing!!
