It’s much easier to give up than to press on. But how easy would it be to live with yourself not knowing what you might have achieved if you didn’t take the easy way out? During the struggle along the rugged journey of life, the best motivation is to keep your eyes on the prize.
Real leaders are “independent thinkers”. They often resist the “norm” and very rarely follow the crowd. These people are often misunderstood and sometimes rejected. Yet, they go on to make the biggest impact because they were determined to tread upon the very places where others were afraid to go. Anyone can hold a position, but not everyone is a leader.
If I have to fit into a ‘mold’ in order for you to accept me, I’d rather you straight out reject me because it’s never going to happen. You be you and I will continue to be me. Offering sound advice is one thing, but attempting to make a clone of yourself is quite another.
