We live in a crowded and busy world where everyone is seeking attention. You need to be different! You need to stand out because if you’re the same you run the risk of being overlooked. Although people say that imitation is the simplest form of flattery, I believe that being an original will provide a bigger platform. When you dare to be an original you are in essence daring to be “yourself” and everything that encompasses who you really are. Too many it can be a scary and daunting proposition.
But why is that?
Because it means subjecting ourselves to being judged, scrutinized and maybe even ridiculed. It also means we expose our vulnerability. It takes courage and self-confidence to be an original, but in doing so we reveal our uniqueness and show that we are one of a kind.
