You are the only You in all existence. There has never been another human being ever with your experiences, your thoughts, your dreams, your fears, your goals and your vision.
Often we trudge along in the footsteps of another as though this life is a constant snowstorm and we are blinded and trying to find our way. Our way is not another’s way. Don’t trace the footsteps of another and end where they did.
It is perfectly fine to trace the footsteps of another for a time, but unless you go further, what good are you doing? Don’t go through life tracing an already existing path, make your own. How can you start that today?
