#11 Artistry Is Thievery
There is no such thing as originality. Let’s be real, there exists nothing original in the world anymore. If something manages to be original, then it is a feat in and of itself.
But running after originality lands you nowhere.
Building your style, whether it be late-night TV hosting or acting, comes from emulating your heroes. You can experiment and mix around different styles to find your unique voice.
Imitate the greats and find yourself in the process!
Just remember, when you are plagiarising anything, make sure to give credit where it’s due. In the end, it doesn’t matter if you take inspiration as long as you have something unique to say!
