Our natural tendency is to want to fit in.
To avoid being different.
To not want to step on anyones toes.
The world doesn’t want us to be anything but living in the curve because that’s the safe zone.
The zone where a majority of everyone else is as well.
The zone that will keep you doing, being, and acting average.
Normal is death.
There comes a point in everyone’s life where they just want to be normal. To fit in. To be accepted by the group.
I tried that. I tried that a few times. Want to know what I learned from trying to be like everyone else?
1. It’s impossible. 2. It’s just boring.
Why would you want to be anything but yourself?
You were born and given the most unique gifts in the world that no one else has in the same combination as you. I say leverage what you are good at, work on what you are bad at and dream.
Dream greatly. Live daringly. Speak kind words and inspire the hearts of others.
Be anything but normal.
