A common misconception is that the first is the best. How many times in life have you ran across egotistical people that claim by them being the first to do something they are the best? Are The Sugarhill gang the best rappers ever? Is the first person you have sex with the best sex you ever had? Do you release the first draft of book? You already know the answer. Many people try to throw a smokescreen out there when the realize they are losing ground to someone much younger and wiser than them. They may have paved the dirt road but you layed the cement down and put the sidewalk up. It fucks with their ego when you do what they do better than they could ever do it. They have the nerve to steal from you but get mad when someone steals from them. The arrogant don’t even realize that you made them change their whole format without even trying. That’s the beauty of the game. Take it as a compliment. Their brain isn’t as imaginative as yours and will never be.
