Dare to be different, in some way

Think different or be the different one? Express yourself or be the one that you are?

There are countless ways to practice standing out. However, it is impossible to separate ourselves from the crowds without first identifying what are the popular objects people lust.

A la purple cow

We imitate others so we can fit in more quickly. Conformity is a shortcut in the beginning. But in the long run, it is the outsiders that are the only people history remembers.

It is easy to be like everybody else: you just follow the herd around the race track and jump through hoops.

Meanwhile, it takes more courage to step back and intensify what makes us unique. Do what makes sense, even if runs opposite of the status quo.

  1. You’d love Seth Godin’s book Purple Cow… it’s all about standing out from the crowd. Completely agree we’re bought up in a society where being different isn’t being promoted enough. Preach it!

  2. From the time I was small, I was different from other people. It took me a while to learn but I was much happier being myself rather than trying to fit in.
