Very few people start off with great advantages, personally I did not have many opportunities of my own, my school days was not interesting, it made me ask lots of questions that I did not get answers to.
Some have opportunities and are born with silver spoons, the world goes round for them and almost everything is easy.
With a silver spoon or without, you still have to chart your own course if you want to stand out.
Having exrayed these 2 different views on life, one mistake we can make to further dampen our chances for a happy life or plunge our appetite for greatness is following and staying with the crowd.
One quote from one of my favorite authors Robert Kiyosaki says “No one achieves great things by following the crowd. Have a spine. Strike your own path.”
In other words successful people are able to draw the line, look look into the future as far as they can determine, and forge their own path into destiny.
I also want to add that: the future is always clearer when you can listen to yourself clearly. It is like listening to a new beautiful song, to get into the depth of the song, you will like to know the lyrics and the melody.
You cannot get into the heart of the song if your environment is noisy.
Most times we move into our closure, with eyes closed, plugged earpiece, we listen and digest the music we create pictures with it, it becomes part of us.
1. When you leave the crowd you listen to yourself more clearly, you are now able to draw charts for your plans. Your thoughts are clearer,
The charts create willingness to succeed, consetration, focus.
2. It helps you identify your strength, it shows you what you can do and cannot do.
Thus your ability to identify and plan position you.
People who lacks the ability to leave the crowd and listen to themselves lacks the ability to master their appetite.
Before you can stand out, you need to leave the crowd. Listen to yourself, make your vision clearer, and you will stand out.
