Do you ever feel like everyone else is ‘normal’ and you are not? Like there is something you are not ‘getting’? That you are on the outside looking in? Congratulations! That is a great place to be! It gives such freedom because if everyone else is normal and you are not, it meens others don’t expect you to do things the way everyone else does them and you can go about your business doing things your own way and having fun while you are doing it.
Be a trail blazer!
If you think about it; all of those normal people are afraid of sticking out and they follow the norms and do things just the way they are supposed to be done because of that fear. It is so ingrained in their lives that they can’t imagine doing something new. They need trail blazers to create new norms before they can do anything new themselves, and if you are not one of them; you are most likely a trail blazer.
Don’t you think it would be just terribly boring to follow all those rules? Being a bit odd is much more fun and when you meet a person who is just as odd as you it is like meeting a friend right from the get go.
You get to try it first!
If you are one of these trail blazers it means that you get to try things before everyone else. You have a different mindset that makes it possible for you to come up with new ideas and you are more imaginative than most, and those are some very good traits! Sure, some of the new ideas might fall flat, but then at least you have tried them. And if you think about it; there is no such thing as failure, there is only result! Whatever you do, you can never fail, you only produce a result. That result might not always be what you set out to do, but it is still just a result of what you did, not a failure.
There is no need to be afraid
Also, if you are afraid of not following the norms, just go for it anyway, it can be the best thing you ever did! The result you get might exceed your every expectation, or it might not, but if you don’t try you will never know and that would be the worst result you could ever get. I can assure you that you don’t want to lie on your deathbed thinking about what you wish you had done, that would be a tragedy.
Get going right now!
So go ahead, start working on that business idea, plant that garden, write that book, paint those paintings, create those crafts or whatever it is that you are thinking about, you can’t go wrong! It is so much better to have made an effort and not gotten the results you wanted than to have just stayed in that little box of yours from fear, and the next time you try a new thing it will do better. Practice makes perfect! Just don’t give up, some things take time to evolve and if you have to pursue your dreams a little longer than expected; then do that!
