It is a tragic thing when we reject our individuality to fit in with the crowd . We are conditioned from the time we are children to believe that we have to be just like everyone else, but no one destined for greatness ever fits in.
Let me say that again, No one destined for GREATNESS ever fits in. I have always been one to color outside of the lines, or zig when everyone else zagged, and not everyone appreciates different, but different is what I bring to the table. Embracing your uniqueness is a liberating thing.
Being true to yourself when everyone wants you to exist in a box is not always easy, but stay true to who you are even if you are misunderstood. Don't be afraid of being different, be afraid of being like everyone else. Leave mediocrity to the masses and embrace your identity and your call for excellence. After all, Dr. Seuss says: Why fit in when you were born to stand out?
