Don’t Be Better, Just Be Different

Has anyone ever told you that you look like someone they know? Most likely. You probably look exactly like someone they know. I mean exactly the same. You could be twins, except that you’re not.

There are plenty of people out there just like you and me. They look like us. They sound like us. They dress like us. They may have the same interests and ambitions. But from 30,000 feet all of these same people look and sound boring and homogenized.

Do you see things differently? What is unique to you, to your ideas and dreams? That one slight difference makes all the difference. That one slightly skewed idea, thought, or fragment could be huge.

Everyone’s always trying to be better, and they end up all being the same. You don’t have to be better, you just have to be different.
