Now you may think that there is more to life than what you have experienced so far. Well there is!
You might feel like a square peg being forced into a round hole. You don’t quite fit the mold but you’re open to see things differently, to break out and explore new ideas on what is possible. There are limitless possibilities for you!
You feel that you would like to be counted among the uncommon men & women, those that are leaving their mark on society. You will discover how you can go about doing this!
Well, “Here’s To The Crazy Ones. The misfits. The rebels. The trouble-makers. The round pegs in the square holes.The ones who are seeing things differently.
They’re not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status-quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify, or vilify them.
About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward.
And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world – are the ones who DO !” ~ Apple Computers
The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man. ~ George Bernard Shaw
So then, be unreasonable, do and expect more from yourself and others, and you will be and have more.
In a world of conformity, who are those non-conforming crazy ones, who are the uncommon men & women, the rebels, the innovators & achievers that we can use as an example to guide and help us?
Where are the uncommon men & women, the unconventional ones that stop us in our tracks and make us think, the ones that inspire, challenge and the ones that have affected us profoundly?
Now I am sure that you can think of many more than the ones that I have listed below and there will be many more that this world may never ever hear about -
- Nelson Mandela
- Sir Richard Branson
- Albert Einstein
- Martin Luther King
- Rosa Parks
- Steve Jobs
If you’ve ever felt like that square peg in a round hole then you know what I am talking about here. You might well be that ‘crazy one’ among the uncommon men & women that hasn’t yet stepped up to the plate to let the world & yourself see what you’re capable of achieving.
Because too often we are told, usually by well meaning and intentioned parents, teachers, bosses, co-workers, friends, family members or spouses:
- you can’t do that
- stop being a dreamer
- be realistic
- play it safe
- don’t rock the boat
If you hear this repeatedly and often enough then you may end up believing it yourself and have doubts about ever achieving your dreams!
In the words of Zig Ziglar,
You are designed for accomplishment, engineered for success, and endowed with the seeds of greatness!
Now you may not agree with everything you see and read here, and I certainly don’t expect that you do. However I will be sharing ideas and tools with you here that will enable and propel your business, career or life to the next level or rung on the ladder of your success.
Be a student, not a follower!
As I said before, don’t just believe everything that you see and hear, but check it out, try it out and see what works for you. Because you never know where and when your breakthrough happens and where this journey could take you! It’s uncommon men & women like you that make a difference in this world!
So in the words of Nike – Just Do It.
If you find something that has helped you or you have some ideas of your own then leave a comment here, because you will never know who needs to hear what you have to say!
