Thinking Beyond the Crowd

Posted on: June 22, 2010

                        
            It is so easy for you to try and fit into a mould all
            the time. It seems that you have little chance to do
            what you genuinely want and need to do. And this can
            really stifle your self and creativity.
           
            Self-assertion requires that you act beyond the
            crowd. You can do this by setting new trends or by
            doing new things, things that most kids your own age
            wouldn’t have the courage to do.
           
            Most of you want to belong much more that you
            want to make your mark in the world. You don’t want
            to leave your stamp on things and people. You just
            prefer to filter into the background of things and
            cruise slowly without making any ripples.
           
            But why do you do that? Some of you do that
            because you don’t want to be noticed. Others do
            that because you don’t want to be criticized by
            others. But I think one of the underlying reasons
            why you don’t want to do things that are different
            from everyone else is because you don’t have the
            courage to do so. And this is really sad, given the
            fact that you are your own person.
           
            So, next time you hesitate to do something that
            you would really want to do, hold your head up high
            and just do what you wanted to do. You’ll feel
            empowered that you did because you will have
            resisted being a clone.
