Do your stand out for your dreams? Are you being fully committed to your goals, literally obsessed and people think you are weird or unrealistic? Good. Often people who put themselves out there gain respect and skyrocket their success.
Have you ever heard of a man name Dr. Elmer Gates? He was an American inventor who came up with his biggest creations by “sitting for ideas.” He has a little room, with the table and the chair in the middle and pen and paper. Anytime Dr. Gates needed the use of his creative thinking to come up with another invention or resolve the problem with the current one; he would sit in his room, in the dark, brainstorming. Once he found an answer, he would turn on the light and write it down immediately. Is it weird? Maybe but his uniqueness made me him respected, wealthy and extraordinary individual.
Being different is a positive sign since so many people are just following the crowd, entire life not knowing what their direction is. I am here to give you 3 reasons why being a “weirdo” is often the sign of superior personality and why embracing it is so important.
1. You stand out
There is nothing worse than being another copy of someone who already exists. Breaking through in life and success means to bring to the table something new and different. In today’s world of social media and the internet, you can “sell” yourself easier than 50 years ago. Instagram and Facebook are full of crazy people who made tons of money.
Recently, my friend showed me an Instagram account of a young boy who is putting makeup on a curse his life out in every video. Some people would consider it silly and primitive, but obviously, this young “weirdo” knows what he is doing. With thousands of followers, big cosmetic companies are already offering him their products so he can market it for them. Don’t be afraid to stand out.
2. You’ll inspire others
Many people go through life hiding who they are and what they want because they fear the criticism from close people or society. Your weird-self will be a great example for people to come out of their safety zone and show the world what is inside of them.
I believe that in each of us is a piece of craziness. It may come in completely different form or shape. If you lose any barriers and show the world your true self, more than likely, people will admire you and wish that they are like you. We’ve seen it all the time. At first, everyone shakes their heads when someone new shows up and then this person gets all the attention.
We don’t see it only today but let look at the history. Can you imagine how many people thought that Edison is crazy since he tried and tried and tried to invent the light bulb? He had tried to do this about 10 000 times. Some of his closest people thought he lost it. These aren’t accidents but real stories. Get inspired by them and be the inspiration.
3 You’ll have a better chance to succeed
As Eleanor Roosevelt once said, “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” Following who you are and being yourself will give you a better chance to score high. You don’t want to keep up with the Joneses, do you?
The majority of people live, behave and act like those around them because they see it as something acceptable by society. To hell with society, they don’t create your happiness. Those who have a genuine interest in your life will stand by you no matter what, and those who don’t, they can keep it moving.
If there is anything that separates you from others, embrace it. Don’t let it die because of the fear of judgment or misunderstanding. People will criticize you anyway, so spice it up a bit and make it count.
