Don’t Fit In If It Hurts


You don’t have to but should you decide to accept a wrong role just because you need it, think about how long you will have to endure the pain of doing what you really don’t want! There is always a much better way to manage a round hole if you are a square peg. If you can’t find what you want, create it.

How often do you hunt for new ways to do the same thing in your office? “Some things never change” can hurt your business or career. The system or process of work may not be broken but it can be improved for better productivity.

–Make that bold challenge today!

Somebody superior could take offence if you challenge his or her authority. Give them a good reason to listen to you and why your opinion matters. You may not have done it before. But I bet you think about it and you even have figured out a better way to do that task but you don’t call the shots, so you don’t say anything.

You are always waiting for that opportune moment to take charge or lead your team before you start thinking aloud. Some people can better influence from the fence. Make your presence count. You will be surprised at the reaction from your team. Don’t expect total acceptance of your ideas, prepare to be pushed, but don’t fall.

–Rules are meant to be broken, break them with pride if you have something significant to create or share.

There will always be rules and limit, but guess what limits can be stretched. Every thing you are using right now has been improved upon. Think Apple, think different. What can you improve this year. What can you do better in business and career.

Rules are meant to be broken, break them with pride if you have something significant to prove. Ask the right questions about  why the rules exist, but not just any question. You may have been asking the wrong questions all this while. 

–Start creating your own path

Can you create your own path? Yes you can! You think you are not capable but you can do more than you think you can. Don’t trust the system to take care of you. Create you own system or rules and find a way to make it work. Stick to the bigger picture but be prepared to embrace change along the way.

–Everything around you that you call life was made up by people that were no smarter than you and you can change it, you can influence it, you can build your own things that other people can use.Once you learn that, you’ll never be the same again.”– Steve Jobs

Following instructions is no longer sufficient. 

–Don’t fear to stumble

The important thing about any journey is the courage to get back up and continue. There are countless stories about entrepreneurs who failed multiple times but still pursued their dreams in the midst of the stumbling blocks.

What is stopping you from trying out one of the many ideas in your notepad. Don’t fear to fail, if you are failing, fail fast and move on but whatever happens don’t give up on the bigger dream. The path could change but the vision should be clear throughout the journey. 

Don’t give in to the relentless pressure to get a job if you really want to create or start something on your own. What can you do next or better still what are you going to do next! It’s about time you made your first innovative step. Take that bold step now! You don’t have to be right, you just need to start.

Fear is only as deep as the mind allows.–Japanese Proverb

–Don’t be afraid of what might happen!

Thoughts like “nobody will like it” “my friends will think I am crazy” can deter you from making any step into who you actually are or what you can accomplish. Put your mind to getting things done instead of focusing on all the things that could go wrong.

Don’t escape from fear; embrace your deepest fear and fight it to overcome it! 

If you think you don’t in your current system, job, environment or position and you are hurting all this while, do something about it.
