If you’re reading this… it's not too late. Lol who doesn't love some Drake? But seriously it's not too late and it does apply to you. There seems to be a status quo surrounding anything we do in life. Just like rules, they are everywhere. I am here today to say to you forget the status quo. Break the status quo. Do your own thing and don’t be afraid. Don’t hesitate to do things a little different. And when you do your own thing be confident in all you do. If you ever for a second doubt what you are doing remember that some of the greatest dared to step outside the perfectly outlined box to try something different. In the end if we all do the same things “as expected” where is the fun in that? Where is the uniqueness?
I often hear the quote
“No one is you and that is your superpower” – Elyse Santilli
Then why don’t we take more advantage of it. We talk the talk so why not walk the walk. If being ourselves is our superpower then we shouldn’t by any means be trying to fit in or do the same as everyone else. I recently embarked on a new project and when I did I went about seeking tips that could benefit me on my new venture. The tips were across the board unanimous. Then I decided I would do a little research of my own actually analyzing some accounts to see what conclusions I could draw myself. After doing so, I quickly realized uniformity. What I was analyzing looked the same. The only difference was the name of the account I was analyzing. I then decided that I would march to the beat of my own drums. Yes, the tips given were amazing but they weren’t me. They didn’t represent me or what I wanted to do, not to mention my vision. In hindsight I had to pass. I had to pass on the status quo that was expected of me on this new venture I was heading towards. I knew that I wanted to be different. To be different one must perform differently. I didn’t want to be in the status quo but rather break it.
Sometimes doing so tends to be a little challenging especially when everyone goes right and you turn left. But in the spirit of being ourselves lets continue to take advantage of the best superpower there ever was. The one that is truly unique and cannot be copied. Break the status quo using your superpower!
