All that you need to do is be perfectly and completely YOU.
It is not necessary to copy someone else. At least to the extent that you lose yourself. I do think that it is good to have role-models and inspirations to emulate but in the end:
“Take the BEST then leave the rest.”
Learn from the lessons and mistakes of others. Learn from your own mistakes, then blaze a trail for yourself taking into account all that you have learned.
And MOST importantly:
“Be Real. Be True. Be YOU!!!!
