Emulate Yourself

In an interview Peter Thiel said of Elon Musk:

Elon Musk is not a good role model, as he is too difficult to emulate.

But when I think deeper about it:

Why strive to emulate others? Why not strive to just emulate yourself?

Life is more fun when you strive to emulate yourself to the maximum and to ignore the personalities and character traits of others

You’re the goal.

You are the goal and end product. So why not take pride in yourself, your virtues, your vices and strive to just maximize yourself?
