Play Your Own Game

See the LightDon’t do what others do.

It has been done before.

A million times.

Stop trying to sound like someone else,

Or look like someone else,

Or act like someone else.

When you do,

You lose what makes you YOU.

And YOU is what we want to see.

Learn from the best.

Find inspiration around you,

And use your imagination

To create a career

Only you can create.

Make time for what moves you.

Eliminate the irrelevant.

Cut the clutter,

And surround yourself with people

Who support your dreams

And keep you down to earth.

Forget competition.

Embrace cooperation.

And have the courage

To stick out

And stand out.

And charge a decent fee

For decent work.

Use your wits.

Trust your intuition.

Enjoy the Now.

Grow.

Give.

Love.

And remember…

Play your own game!
