“The greatest downfall of being a trend setter is having everyone duplicate whatever one does.” —Thomas W.P. Slatin
Well spoken Thomas! Your words are truly wise.
That is actually a good thing. Remember, imitation is the best form of flattery.
Being a trend setter is like a double edged sword. It has both its good and bad.
I think this is only natural. The whole point of being a trend setter is so that everyone can follow.
I couldn’t agree more to this. Everyone following trend setters kills everyone else’s originality.
It is never good to be a copy cat. I have always practice being unique and true at all times.
I agree, even I’m not a content creator I find very disrispectfull when people creates duplicates.
This is the world we are living in today – if there’s something new, fresh, and obviously very trendy, everyone and their mother will immediately take to emulating it whatever it is. It’s become so ingrained into our current society and culture that anyone who wants to do something out of the box against the current trends will be ridiculed for being different. And that’s just too sad.
Well, for me I don’t follow trends and it never my thing but your quote is true. They set trends others just follow.
Duplicating whatever one does is really reduce the quality of most output this days. All in the name of making easy money, these has really eaten deep into our system.
There is truth in this quote. Hardly will you see a version of stuffs which doesn’t originate from somewhere. Nice and brilliant quote.
I guess that’s one thing a trend setter will have to live with..I love this quote
To succed there once said you need to be unique. The uniqueness makes you outshine the normal/usual.
This is so true, humans are just copycats and they do a lot just to be like another person especially the trend setters.
There I more to the power of imitation. Well, I believe your quote is from experience and based on emotions as a master writer.
Well Imitation is the highest form of flattery so it is okay. Nothing is original these days most of the time . What makes everything unique despite that though is EXECUTION. The same can be applied here as well.
