"Always be yourself, express yourself, have faith in yourself, do not go out and look for a successfull personality and duplicate it." - Bruce Lee
The one thing Bruce Lee emphasized about is being the best person that you can possibly be while being yourself. He did not want you to become some carbon copy of someone else, no matter how good they might be. Now he did not say that to tell you that you should never look up to people and set goals, but to remind you that finding your own way is the key to achieving happiness in your success.
