Following, what meaning does this word bring to you? If you’re active on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram – you know what effect does it have on you and how.
Following is not about just hitting the button. When you follow whosoever it is, you somehow end up adopting 0.1% of their habits, good or bad that’s another part of the story.
Let’s talk about it generally, by following the society trends we are growing but are we Progressing?
I would say, NO. We are not.
Let’s see how.
There was a time when a kid was asked, “Beta, What do you wish to become when you grow up?” He would instantly reply, “I want to become a doctor or an engineer.”
Because he was growing up seeing his elder ones doing or struggling to get into any of these two professions.
At that time he didn’t even think how difficult it would be or if he’s made for this field or not.
It was put into him that only these two are respectable fields but it is not the truth. It was shown to him that how a doctor can earn handsome amount of money, but it’s not like that.
If one person is earning good money being in a particular profession that doesn’t mean you’ll earn equal or more amount of money. You might end up earning more money too.
Copying someone is not a bad thing, “kehte hai na naqal ke liye bhe aqal ki zaroorat hoti hai.”
A wise person once said, “Begin as a copycat and end as a master.”
Let me give you an example of a pianist who starts his career by playing the ‘Happy Birthday’ tune and then learn more and release masterpieces so we can say that he copied the tune made years ago to learn more so this is not copying, in the end ‘ your intentions matter!
Another one – when we didn’t know how to speak, our parents taught us how to speak by making us learn A, B, C and so on. But we didn’t stick onto it only, now we know a lot more than that. So copying is not a bad thing but try to grow after you copy don’t stick only to what you have copied.
