On Being You

"This, I believe, is the great Western truth: that each of us is a completely unique creature and that, if we are ever to give any gift to the world, it will have to come out of our own experience and fulfillment of our own potentialities, not someone else's" (pg 186).


"You can't have creativity unless you leave behind the bounded, the fixed, all the rules" (pg 194).

(Am reading: The Power of Myth by Joseph Campbell)


The takeaways?

1. You are unique.
2. You have something to offer the world.
3. This gift comes from your own potential and experiences.
4. In order to share this gift (as you're meant to do), you may have to break some rules.

Be Brilliant!
