It’s not very popular among people in society to deliberately decide which channels you want to be contacted on or to say “No” to an appointment or any other social event. “You must be very anti-social doing that. Everyone else is coming!”, they may say.
They keyword here is “everyone”.
Everyone are the people who do things because everyone else is doing them as well. They copy within their own circles, it’s almost incest on a socio-cultural level. If you do what everyone else is doing, how can you possibly find YOUR way, YOUR passion, YOUR uniqueness. You are and will be just like them.
When they are winners, you’ll be a winner. When they’re losers, you’ll be a loser. When they’re average, you’ll be average. When you want to be unique, you go solo or surround yourself with so many groups of heterogeneous people that you don’t belong to either this or that group. You’re in between chairs but have access to many points of view. Powerful.
The take-away from today: Uncovering your true uniqueness is the greatest gift. It releases enormous energy and makes you a proud human person. Be aware to have an objective that you use in your life if you want to keep existing. If this self-discovery process means to avoid some people, that’s ok. If it means to overcome fears, that’s ok. In the end, it will be beneficial for you and the ones who receive what you radiate.
