If everyone is going in one direction, then go the other, because if they are all already following something, then it’s too late. It is already safe, convenient, easy to do, easy to replicate. It is already without question, just compliant adherence to what is.
The crowd is not where innovation takes place or where things are challenged. The crowd is safe, the opposite is risk, are the wilds.
We need people to brave the wilderness, to be heretics, to be different and the human race needs it more than ever.
Within the circle lies compliance, following the crowd, not wanting to offend, perfectionism to avoid judgement, comfort that is uncomfortable, not speaking out, fear of being wrong, fear of almost everything outside the circle.
The only way to change anything is to rise above, to free ourselves from the circle, to actually be able to see the circle for what it is. We have to embrace the wilderness, we have to be brave enough to be different, we have to be prepared to leave the perceived safety of the circle.
We can not escape if we do not see we are within the circle.
Rise, lead, inspire, change and be free.
