I'm thinking...

*NOTE: ok, this post kind-of turned into a sermon of sorts... it is a sermon directed at myself for personal growth... if you see anything here that inspires you... then take it for yourself! YA!


It's not about how many things you can claim as your own invention...
It' not about what you can be the first to do or what can be named after you...
It's not about how well you keep others away from "YOUR" ideas...
it's not even about getting the credit you deserve...
It's about how much inspiration you give to others.


Is talent meant to be owned? Possessed? OR Is talent meant to be shared?

ahhh but I ramble on.. maybe its better stated in the movie SLC Punk:

"Another thing that pissed me off, talkin' about who started punk rock music. Was it Sex Pistols in England? Was it the Ramones an the Velvet Underground in New York? 'It was the Ramones!' 'It was the Sex Pistols!' Raahh! Who cares who started it?! It's music. I don't know who started it, and I don't give a *@#!.The one thing I do know is that we did it harder, we did it faster, and we definitely did it with more love, baby. You can't take that away from us."

If you see someone um "Copying" you... don't get mad... be happy! Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery! They probably did it first anyway... just with less publicity. ;)

There is nothing new under the sun... to try to find identity in these things is futile.
To inspire others... now that's immortality! ... even if they don't know it was you that inspired them. ;)

It has been said (and attributed to numerous leaders) that it is amazing how much can be accomplished if no one cares who gets the credit.
