What’s meant for you won’t pass you.
We feel pressure to be the best, be the first, get there before someone else does. This was something I felt on and off for many years in the past. Which was not fun.

You’re worried that someone will take your idea at work? They won’t present it like you do. You think someone will steal your song lyric? They won’t word it like you do.

You can have hobbies and passions and ideas but it’s the gems that REALLY EXCITE you that matter. The ones that MOTIVATE you enough to pursue a new path; THOSE are the ones meant for you. The ones you wake up thinking about at 2am. AND even if someone else has the same idea, there’s ONLY ONE YOU! Anything you do has your fingerprints on it and that doesn’t change.
Apple has Steve Jobs fingerprints on it.
Henry Ford’s spirit is still alive and well in Ford.
Bill Gates is synonymous with Microsoft.
J.K. Rowling created an entire universe with her heartbeat as it’s life source.
These projects wouldn’t be the world-impacting-forces that they are if they had come from someone else. They might still be great, but they wouldn’t be the ones we know without these people behind them.
Yes, there are collaborators for great ideas, but the person who drives the idea forward; is the one who’s fingerprints will continue on with the idea.
That’s the magic. and YOU HAVE THAT MAGIC.
