Are You Conforming?

"The opposite for courage is not cowardice, it is conformity. Even a dead fish can go with the flow." - The Last, Jim Hightower

“Think about this, if everybody is taught the same thing – there’s a nationally published curriculum. 

So, you go to school, you learn exactly the same thing as the kids you went to school with all the way through grade 12. And then they tell you to go out there and be different. Go out there and make a difference, go out there and realize your full potential.

But how the hell are you suppose to do that if you’re all taught the same thing and you’re competing against a guy whom you went to school with since kindergarten?” – The Last, Maker Of Kings 

Are you really that different? Or just conforming?

As we grow older, it’s easy to get lost in the sea of “group think.” We unconsciously lose our individuality and what makes us unique. It’s a natural occurrence.

But, if you want power, success, wealth, happiness, fulfillment, and not just be a shadow or clone of the people around you, you have to go against the grain.

Adopt the contrarian mindset.

Don’t die a copy.

Live this mindset and you’ll slowly become what you’re meant to be – a leader.

Rock the gear and be reminded that you’re not a duplicate. In doing so, you’ll have that much swag than the rest of them.

“…The Last shall be the first…”
