Originality is all about feeling safe in your own skin and learning to trust yourself so that you work under your values, express your original voice and be the best you can be. It means that you don’t live by other people’s standards. It’s knowing about who you are, what you stand for, and then having the courage to be yourself in every situation of life.
One of the great sadness’s of life is that we are born into this genius, this originality, this authenticity, and yet the world sort of beats it out of us in some ways. We’re little kids and we have this great dream to be an astronaut or a poet. Our parents, say, “Become an accountant. Become a lawyer. Be more practical.” We get to school and we’re sort of speaking in our own voice and we’re singing out loud and we’re dressed in this way we want to dress as little kids. What do the teachers say? “Be like everyone else. Talk like everyone else. Think like everyone else. Don’t be a disruptor.” We are born into the genius, but as we grow through that genius got lost somewhere. We start living someone else life, leaving our own.
So, before its too late, ask yourself, “How can I make my return to originality?” find your originality again. Find your authenticity. Walk your talk. Live your values. Do your dreams. Remember your hidden talents, not the hidden talents of your neighbor or the person in the office next to you. Be true to yourself. Do what makes you happy. Don’t afraid of being judged, being called weird, being hated on…etc. Be content in yourself because you know that is who you truly are and you have accepted yourself 100%.
Never change your originality for the sake of others because nobody can play your role better than you. You are best when you are you.
Keep Smiling 🙂
