How on earth can you stand out from the crowd when there is so much noise in the world? How do you make yourself known, and stand up and say ‘Hey everyone, I am over here’ without being a pain and losing your true identity?
Here’s a few thoughts that I have on the subject of standing out and still being true to yourself and thinking a little different.
The crowd say: Change is not good, don’t upset the balance Independents say: We are constantly changing, why wait for the crowd to change, be the change!
The crowd say: Plan your life. Independents say: Just do it, fail as many times as possible, but just do it.
The crowd say: We like happy, balanced, educated people to drive our world. Independents say: We need degree-less dreamers, and ‘weirdo’s’ who think differently.
The crowd say: We need people who are realistic. Independents say: We need people who believe they can change the world.
The crowd say: Don’t teach songs like ‘baa baa black sheep’ as it will offend some people. Independents say: Absolute bullshit!
The crowd say: Put an ‘X’ in the box for the candidate you’d like to vote for Independents say: Sign up to become a candidate.
The crowd say: Get a good steady job, with good pension benefits, and when you retire you can enjoy life. Independents say: Enjoy your life now and create the job that suits you.
The crowd say: Steady and slow. Independents say: Rock the boat, and rock it often.
The crowd say: Be normal Independents say: Be weird.
The crowd say: Be economical with the truth Independents say: Lay yourself bare and tell the truth at all costs.
The crowd say: Change is sometimes a good thing. Independents say: Change is absolutely necessary.
The crowd say: Learn as much as possible and you won’t make so many mistakes Independents say: Make as many mistakes as possible, but learn from every single one of them
The crowd say: Wait and think about it. Independents say: Do it, and then think about.
The crowd say: We can’t all live our dreams. Independents say: Why the hell not!
Be the change, be the force, be the leader, be whatever the hell you want to be,stop thinking about it, do it, do it now and don’t make any excuses for who you are.
