Innovation and greatness don’t come from emulating others, nor does happiness. It’s crucial to learn from what others have done, but absolutely vital to break your own ground and do your own thing.
Whether the topic of discussion is launching a new business, running an existing business, or living a happy and fulfilling life…deviant behavior is our only true hope. Without deviant behavior, you’re simply mimicking what you think you’re supposed to do and what the history of society tells you to do. Without deviant behavior, society cannot move forward.
From now on, when making a decision, don’t ask yourself what society would do. When making a decision, ask yourself what YOU would do.
To truly live, reach outside society’s expectations.
