“Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of somebody else.”

– Judy Garland

A real truth uttered by a truly unique individual. Judy Garland started her acting and singing career at age 2, and left this earth 45 years later, while still an active star and concert singer, at age 47. She was uniquely talented and she shone like a diamond in her recording career, her acting career, her concert career and, too, as an iconic world figure. She didn’t copy anyone else’s style, anyone else’s mannerisms, or anyone else’s ways. She just perfected her own. These are the people who make the strongest impression, and stand out in other people’s minds, the most and the longest. Known for her iconic sentence, “Toto, I’ve got a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore,” she encouraged others to just be the very best self they could be, and never to copy others. I encourage my clients and mentees to always do the exact same, and I encourage you to do so, as well. “Be yourself; everyone else is taken.”
