I know that sounds odd but hear me out.
In this community, we are constantly being told to do stuff. The kind of tricks we should do to place well at contest, the elements of a trick tutorial, what company is recommended, how a certain yoyo is and why you should and shouldn’t buy it, and the list goes on and on.
While certain advice is good, I think for some, it can be too much of trying to follow what everyone else is saying, and not much on your own creativity and freedom to do what you want to do.
I want to encourage you all, don’t follow the crowd, don’t be afraid to make a different step in a trick you might be trying to figure out. Don’t listen to reviews. Really, while someone may like one yoyo, you may hate it, and while others may hate one yoyo, you may love it (no joke, I like tons of yoyos people hate, to the point that I used to get flaming on my reviews from people saying “you dont know what you’re talking about, NOBODY LISTEN TO HIM! HES WRONG!”)
Be adventurous. Take risk, and don’t give a hay bale on what anyone tries to tell you. Figure it out on your own.
You have freedom, use it.
Stay legit everyone.
