Inspirational Living: Life Lessons for Success & Happiness

The Power of Individuality, Originality & Character

October 3, 2019

Listen to episode 411 of the Inspirational Living podcast: The Power of Individuality, Originality & Character. Edited and adapted from Right Living by Susan H. Wixon.

Inspirational Podcast Excerpt: Is it true that we are too apt to be copies of one another? Yes, it is true. We are often imitators, and not originators. It would appear, almost, at first sight, as if it were dangerous to walk a different path from the accepted highway. Yet there are many short-cuts across lots that bring one to town sooner than following the beaten track.

Instead, we go as others go. We do as others do, without thinking whether it be right or not. When deviating somewhat from the well-worn way, we are apt to be frightened, and to fear we are lost. Yet, we do not live to be exact copies of each other. Originality of action, of speech, of thought, is the necessity of the world. Great men and great women of this or of any period of the world's history, are always those of striking characteristics, of strong individuality.
