Ordinary is for Wimps
It usually takes real courage to stick your head out from amongst the crowd, the first thing that normally happens is that you will experience the taunts and jeers from those within the crowd of your life that notice you are no longer content in being one of them.
Have you ever wondered why this is?
Well It’s primarily because your movement towards your bigger life usually is a movement away from the crowd. This upsets most people because in general crowd dwellers are people who are happy to live within the seeming safety of their comfort zones. Your decision to move away and leave the pack will usually create a feeling of unsettledness amongst the group
I have see this will have ramifications in peoples family, work mates and close friends structures. To be fair here some of the reactions from these people will be fuelled by genuine concern for you, others will become jealous or intimidated out of their own insecurities and small mindedness.
If you need the approval of the crowd or for everyone to like you then you will really struggle to take leadership of yourself and your future. Who said that breaking the power of the crowd doesn’t have a risk factor attached to it. If living an extraordinary life was easy or convenient then everyone would do it. Ordinary is for wimps, it is going to take great courage to rise, make no mistakes about it.
James Allen has this to say about courage,
“Whether you are a man or woman you will never do anything in this world without courage. It is the greatest quality of the mind next to honor”.
