Embracing Our Imperfections
And how to evolve through Failure
"A wonderful flaw about human beings is that we’re incapable of making perfect copies. Our failure to copy our heroes is where we discover where our own thing lives. That is how we evolve."
In a world obsessed with perfection, we often forget the beauty of our imperfections.
We strive to imitate our heroes, aiming for flawless replication, but it is in our inability to achieve perfection that we find our true selves.
Like how I miserably failed trying to copy my idol Sachin Tendulkar while playing cricket, and yet in the process, I found out that I'm not capable of playing with class.
However, my style was more aggressive, and it got the job done very well.
Our failures to copy are not signs of weakness, but rather invitations for exploration. They lead us to discover our unique perspectives, ideas, and talents.
It is through this process that we evolve, growing beyond mere imitation and embracing our own authentic creations.
