I have a tendency to look at the competition and see what their doing. If they are doing something that is working then I should do it too right?
Steal what works and leave the rest.
Today people are compromising their values for followers. Monkey see monkey do. Is a race to the bottom. Who can troll the best? Who can show the most skin? Who can make the biggest promise? Who can create click bait?
The day you try cut corners is the beginning of the end.
Stick to your truth. Stick to what inspires you. Stick to what motivates you. Stick to your interest.
