Be Different

What do you do, to stand out from the crowd? To be completely different? …

Anything? Nothing?

I wouldn’t hesitate to say it’d be nothing, or very little.

And look, you’re not doing anything wrong. You’re being normal. Or, rather you’re being the ‘normal’ society wants us to be.

Similarly, I used to be the same – then I started wearing green hair.

What? Why?

Well watch this week’s video for more….

Are you guilty of judging? Judging anyone that stands outside ‘the norm’?

I think we’re all guilty of it at one time or another.

But I’ve learned that this is the exact thing you need to be – DIFFERENT in order to be OUTSTANDING

Think about it.

There is so much NOISE going on in the market place, so much stuff happening, that if you’re not prepared to wear ‘green hair’ to stand out, to BE DIFFERENT  – how on earth are you going to get your market’s attention, attract followers or inspire people?

It’s an interesting dilemma.

I’ll tell you what stops most people doing it.

1. Youth and Immaturity

2. Fear. Exiting your comfort zone, and being criticized by your peers.

The # 1 Fear People Have? The FEAR of what other people think of you.

There is a rather profound saying that should belie this… 

‘What Other People Think Of Me, Is Not My Business’

True Friends, True Family support you going out on a limb.

The others? They’re not worth it.

So – what now then Andrew?

BE YOU

BE REAL

Do some crazy stuff

Get out there, make some noise and share with me in the comments section below – how you go wearing green hair.

 

Til next time

  1. Good one Andrew. Every business can learn from this. Eg in the US there is a tyre retailer where the assistants RUN to your car when you pull in. Clients go WTH in a good way, and team member is lifted to an energetic state by running.

    Cheers
    James

  2. Well said
    Do what you love——-
    Those who mind do not matter , and those who matter do not mind—- so go ahead —

  3. Well done Andrew,

    Coming from an Irish background, GREEN is my favourite colour. Keep it handy for next St Patrick’s Day and be blessed with Guiness . And as per your message be yourself. Love your work.

    Regards Mick

  4. Ha, I’m always keen to find out why you’re doing what you’re doing in your videos Andrew 😛 I have a cheeky sense of humour and the more my company grows the more I’m unleashing it – I find it attracts just the sorts of clients we love working with 😉

  5. Hi Andrew, I sent this to my 13 year old daughter as she is having a tough time at school being bullied. I think it may help her look at things differently. Well done.
