Doing things ‘Your’ way
Do you have something unique to offer? An alternative perspective or a different way of doing things? I am sure that you do. Consider this: no one person has lived the same life. We are born at different times and eras and move through life with different mental filters. If you think about it there is no way that each person’s life can actually be the same as another’s. That means that you have something unique to contribute. That is quite a phenomenal thought if you think about it. Twins don’t even have the same lives because they are in different bodies. I don’t even think that Siamese twins would experience life in the same way because they would have different mental filters and still view lives from a slightly different perspective / angles. So with this in mind, then why do people attempt to repeat what has already gone before? Why do people bandwagon? Well it is because they are trying to ride on the back of something that has worked. Take for example the Harry Potter books, how many bandwagoners managed to make their billions off the back of it? What made the Harry Potter series so special was that J.K Rowling made the book her way. There may well have been influences but that is not the point, we all take inspiration from somewhere and amalgamate the fragments into something new.
One of the things that I found when I was teaching creative writing classes is that people often emulated what had gone before. The vocalised belief is that there is nothing original. I contest that and say that you are original so therefore what you bring to what you create can be original. Yes there are limited story lines with themes; however, what you put into the world can be original because you create it. You will also find that the passion will rise within you once you ‘put your heart’ into it (this is another blog I wrote). The more you put your heart into something the more energy and passion you have to create something. It is as if you hook up to an energy supply to drive you through to creative heights. Forget about doing something purely to make money. Try creating something purely to experience the joy of creation and stepping into that space where you are in ‘no time’ and the kiss of inspiration canoodles you… When you experience this you will find that doing things your way has a great deal of satisfaction and then you may well find that once creativity flows that your aliveness increases and you find that ‘special’ something you can contribute to the world which demonstrates you have done something your wayJ
