I can’t hear you …..

Psychologist Dr. Oliver James said, “If you want to live a full and fulfilled life, do your own thing on your own terms.”

The reality, however, is that the vast majority of people want us to confirm the validity of their beliefs by conforming to them. This is particularly true of most bosses.

So in your desire to be accepted, it’s easy to end up thinking like everyone else.

But the problem is that if you’re thinking like everyone else, then you’re not thinking, and your need for acceptance can make you invisible.

Fitting in is fine, but not to the extent that you disappear and your voice is unheard.

If you celebrate your uniqueness, the world will too, because subconsciously it wants the same freedom.

Besides, the world pays more for originals than it does for copies.

An accountant called his client called Frank, who was a very wealthy art collector.

“Frank, I’ve got some good news for you and I’ve got some bad news for you,” said the accountant.

“Let’s have the good news first,” said Frank.

“Your wife invested $5000 in two erotic pictures and says that they are worth at least $20 to $25 million dollars. An independent expert has verified the pictures. They’re definitely authentic.

“That’s fantastic news,” said Frank. “What’s the bad news?”

“The pictures are of you with your secretary.”

 

Live big & love deep.
