Good performance is contagious; Poor performance is more contagious. (Craig Groeschel, leadership podcaster)
We are inspired when we watch a gifted athlete, or listen to great speakers and musicians. We’d like to be that good, so we may try to imitate them. That’s good if those we copy are good at what they do. It follows then, that when we imitate those who aren’t as gifted, we may not live up to our potential. Be sure to follow those who provide the best quality examples.
And you should imitate me, just as I imitate Christ (1 Corinthians 1:11).
