Challenge the Norm and Be Your Own Person

personal Dec 19, 2022

There is a lot of pressure coming from what is perceived as the norm. Society has honed and molded generations after generations to be a certain way. But being your own person is important now more than ever. Are you ready to stand out and be an original?


What Does Being an Original Mean?


Being original means that you are being yourself and you are embracing everything that represents who you are. Being true to yourself can be challenging when you open yourself up to be scrutinized and judged by the rest of the world. Being original means exposure, and exposure means vulnerability. 


Although conforming to the norm and just doing what everyone else does can bring some kind of comfort, it also means you don't get to live your full potential. You will end up blending in with the crowd.


Why Should You Dare to be an Original?


It will take a lot of self-confidence and courage for you to feel comfortable being yourself, but it is going to be worth it all. You get to show how unique you are and be known for something that only you can do.


Standing out can be overwhelming, but it means you don't need to wear a mask and hide who you are. You don't need to be complacent about things that don't align with you. The rewards of overcoming the challenges that come with being yourself outweigh the consequences of conforming to the norm.


Being an original will help you live the life that you want. You get to have the life you desire instead of living someone else's life. The standards set by society are the results of other people's opinions. Why would you let other people's thoughts drown out your own voice? 


If you live true to yourself, you will learn to hear your inner voice better. It will be easier to connect with your intuition. Listening to your heart will help you reach breakthroughs that you cannot achieve by being like everyone else.


There are many reasons why you should dare to stand out and be yourself. Celebrate your individuality and live the life you're meant to have.


Tips for Staying True to Yourself


It may be difficult to break out of the habit when you have been following the norm for so long. There will be times when other people's opinions will drown out your voice and you'd feel like hiding behind a mask. Here are some tips to help you stay original:


Know who you are.


Before you can be true to yourself, you need to know who you are first. If you want to be an original in a way that aligns--- you need to channel your higher self within you, not create another mask for you to hide in. Sure, you can redefine your identity and fully embody it-- but first, you need to know what you have to work with.


Learn to trust your intuition.


If you want to be original and stay true to yourself, you will need to learn how to trust your intuition more. The more you listen to your inner voice, the more you can embody who you really are instead of letting external noise dictate your decisions.


There's a time to use your mind and there's a time to use your heart. Learning how to balance these two will greatly improve your life.


Feel confident about expressing yourself.


You may go through some experimentation phase before you can find your true personality and taste. You need to be patient and kind to yourself. Do not rush the process. You need to find things that empower you so that you can feel confident expressing yourself.


Cultivating things that align with you will light a fire within you. Other people will feel your passion and feel drawn to you. You will magnetize people with your presence when you feel comfortable being you. Your originality and uniqueness will attract all sorts of people into your life.


Don't worry about what others think.


It's hard to choose yourself when you care so much about what others think. You know yourself best, so even if someone has well-intentioned opinions about you-- ultimately, you know what's best for you. Don't let other people's opinions take from your confidence. Let go of your insecurities and walk like you own the room.


The Key Takeaway
