People with different perspectives from popularly held views sometimes suppress their unique qualities in order to blend in. It is better to be yourself and attract a few genuine people than to project a false image. It might take a while to find people who appreciate your uniqueness but it’s worth the wait. No matter how weird you think you are people who share your views exist. Pretending to be someone else attracts the wrong people and repels the right ones.
Stay True To You
Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?”
“That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,” said the Cat.
“I don’t much care where–” said Alice.
“Then it doesn’t matter which way you go,” said the Cat.
“–so long as I get SOMEWHERE,” Alice added
“Oh, you’re sure to do that,” said the Cat, “if you only walk long enough.”
– Alice In Wonderland
In this world of over 7,366,967,688 people you only need a small percentage to support your cause. The vast diversity of this world ensures that you will always find someone who shares your vision. The problem with many people is that they don’t stick to their weirdness long enough to attract the right people. The need to belong takes them over and they change to fit in. They seem happy but inside they crave for something more.
Support Self And Others Will Support You
To attract people who appreciate your uniqueness be yourself 100% without apology.
To get people to love you first love yourself.
To get people to respect you first respect yourself.
Icke And Reptiles
David Icke was a goal keeper who later became a clean cut BBC sports presenter. His image was the epitome of norm. He lived the good life. However that life suppressed his true personality and he decided it was not the life for him. Eventually he quit his job and announced he was the son of God and said that the corrupt wealthy elite were actually reptilians disguised as humans. He spoke about UFO’s, the world being an illusion and many other unusual things.
His concepts were not new but most people in his world had never been exposed to them. He was labeled a crazy charlatan and ridiculed by mainstream media. His downfall seemed certain after an interview with Terry Wogan in which he was laughed at by the audience. At one point in the interview when Icke complimented the audience for laughing Wogan said: “They are laughing at you not with you.”. After this humiliating interview he was expected to give up. However, the ridicule only motivated him him to keep pushing his unpopular views until he gathered support for his beliefs. After years of persistence he now lectures to sold out audiences all over the world.
To unleash your full potential you must be yourself. There should be no compromising of your core values to appease others.
