DON’T FOLLOW THE CROWD



Society’s common sense tells us that that is the way to go. Unfortunately, commonsense is not always good sense. It’s just common. If you are a dreamer you cannot afford to work on society’s assumptions and standards. You have to be unique.

For instance, a lot of people have spent anything from 15 to 20 years getting an education so they can have that perfect job and earn a huge salary. Unfortunately for most, the perfect job and the huge earnings never materialize. They only have the long hard years of work and loads of papers with unpronounceable names to show for it.

Most of them have lost touch with the very people they are working so hard to provide for – their husband, wife and children, all because of having to “work hard” for a living. Yet few ask themselves if there is a better way. They blindly follow what they’ve always been taught.

I want to urge you to get up one night and think about your life, wake up one dawn at about 2:00 am and ponder through your life. If you are fulfilled with your achievements and are happy with your life then you are not following the CROWD but if you are not then you are.

Following the crowd will get you no further than the crowd. The people who achieved their dreams stood out of the crowd. My dear friends, to fulfill your aspirations in life you have to think out of the box.
I live you today with one quote from Albert Einstein
“The man who follows the crowd will usually go no further than the crowd. The man who walks alone is likely to find herself in places no one has ever been before.”

Much love
Christian Essel.
