Do You Dare To Be Different?
“The people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do.” — Steve Jobs
I love this saying from Steve Jobs. People who are changing the world are pioneers. They are making paths in new areas, where no one has walked before. That’s why it is not a surprise that the logo of Apple is “Think different.”
But unfortunately, I see very often that people are afraid to be different and to show what they really think or feel, because they are afraid to be judged that they are not good enough or afraid to be rejected. And I feel very sorry about this. We are all different and have our different qualities. We are all like different flowers coming from the same garden. How should a garden look like when all the flowers should be the same?
But, most of the time it takes a lot of courage to step out and to be different. And this is what we need in the world today, the world which is increasingly confused. We need people who are stepping forward and take the lead and try to change the systems which are so not working in solving the problems of today. We need people who do not try to fit in the existing mechanisms, who dare and who take action, because they believe in their vision and ideas for betterment of the world.
And we cannot immediately change the whole world, off course. Our world is our family, our friends, our neighborhood, people we are working with. And this little world we can change by giving the best of ourselves to bring more joy & positivism and to put effort in satisfying the needs of others in justice and wisdom. And this is what matters. And if others are finding that you are crazy, know that the world needs more ‘crazy ones’!
With much love and appreciation!
