It takes a lot of courage and immense courage to be different from others. Being different is not only difficult but thinking differently is another hard thing to do. It’s not for the weak-hearted souls.
When you stop following the crowd, it’s the beginning of the change. The change is a welcome freshness to your life. But you have to sustain that change and carry it forward. It’s because there will always be people everywhere to pinpoint your mistakes and demotivate you. And the common crowd think that you are uncool and crazy.
This is where your character is put to test. Let the common crowd speak their mind, you just have to hold on to what you believe in. But if you are shaky here, then all your efforts are fruitless.
Ignore the negative comments and grab the essential ones. Just keep doing what you believe in. It doesn’t matter how long it takes to reach the destination.
Just keep doing what you believe in.
If all the likeminded minds thought the same way, then the world will be a darn boring place to live. All great inventions and extraordinary changes are due to the the people who thought and lived differently.
Dare to be different. Think differently and follow your heart consistently. This is the coolest thing you can do.
Years before the advent of social networking platforms, we were humble human beings who sent our wishes through the simple POSTCARDS to the people who mattered. These postcards hardly costed a penny. It’s not about the money. But the heart to make the people happy through our words.
I still remember when I was a five-year old, I wrote to my grandma how I missed her and I inquired about her. It made her really happy. When I stopped writing to my grandma, she used to complain to me that why I stopped writing to her. I realized then and even now how much she missed my small postcards of wishes.
Now, coming to our times, postcards are a rarity. But what’s the scarcity in offering the people near us with few positive words. You don’t have to offer them your fortune or materialistic things. But few positive words will serve as the helping hands.
Man is a social animal. You need people and people need you. That’s how the universe works. When you give your ten minutes of your time to someone who needs it badly, it can work wonders for that person.
Few positive words, that’s all you got to give them. You are making someone happy. They will be grateful to you.
Always remember, “Man is a social animal. You need people and people need you”.
