If you follow the crowd, you will likely get no further than the crowd.

If you walk alone, you're likely to end up in places no one has ever been before. Being an achiever is not without its difficulties, for peculiarity breeds contempt. The unfortunate thing about being ahead of your time is that when people finally realize you were right, they'll simply say it was obvious to everyone all along. You have two choices in life. You can dissolve into the main stream, or you can choose to become an achiever and be distinct. To be distinct, you must be different. To be different, you must strive to be what no else but you can be. I am distinct, I am different. Change and Growth takes place in my life on a daily basis because I have risked my life and have dared to become involved with experimenting my own life. I do not desire to do what most of us end up doing i.e. sticking to one company for years and years and expecting growth. Growth means Change and change involves risk, stepping from the known to the Unknown!! Growth happens when you move around, experience different environments, meet different people, interact in different cultures. If we are growing, we are always going to be out of our Comfort Zone. Its not the job title that makes you a competent person, your experience, challenges and thinking out of the box is what that counts!! Don't wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions. So what. Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident and more and more successful.
