For each of us, and our businesses. The collectively distorted world makes us believe our “otherness” is a misfit, too weird, too eccentric, we’re not good enough. We only need to follow best practices, methods or strategies to achieve goals. To find and define ourselves like everyone else. Which makes us feel more rejected as to belong somewhere.
Objectivity gets removed out of an equation, whenever methods get produced. When you get a method, product or solution suggested, be mindful. Stop, think and feel into it. Question it. Is this right for me, right now? Or do I just want to feel accepted, have a quick fix or instant gratification? To call something best practice is not a replacement for discernment, knowledge or creativity. To look at things from a black or white perspective limits our spectrum of true experience. Our individuality gets ignored. But it is our greatest asset.
This is not only about differentiation; it is about our individual uniqueness to be unleashed. To discover our inner truth as we move to become more self-empowered. This is what we are here for.
Individuality also bares potential danger – too much selfishness, egocentrism, narrow-mindedness and intolerance. Those indications are already spreading like an epidemic today. It is going to get worse & could cause rebellion unless we adjust the way we are heading.
How can we unite our individuality without losing our diversity?
