Everyone has their own sense of being.
We all know who we are (at least who we think we are) or how we want to be. Each of us will always hold the power to truly become an amazing individual.
The thing is, there is too often where someone may fall into the idealistic view of how society wants them to be (or even others on a smaller scale).
In the end, we must fight for what we know; we are amazing individuals and we need to preserve that over everything.
A major culprit in losing individuality is society. No matter where you live, are born, are raised; no matter what there are always going to be norms in which people believe are acceptable.
This issue will always be people caring too much on what they believe they should be, not what they want to be. Everyone has been a victim of this at some point in their life. Society is something that is toxic to the world; people as a whole are very impressionable.
There are few leaders, and way too many followers. Being an Individual is truly accepting yourself for the amazing person that you are.
How can this be overcome?
Development of stronger individuality is something that certainly does not happen overnight. Like most things you have to be very patient in order to see a change. The absolute best thing to do, is to try and discover yourself.
Push Your Limits by Being Yourself
Things that push your limits, mentally and physically are a few that will naturally show you how amazing you are. We are capable of anything and everything we set our minds to.
Once you push your limits, that is when you find what you are made of; then you will realize who you are. Like I’ve said before, in personal development there is no step by step process.
You learn by doing.
Individuality will benefit you in more ways than just one, but that comes with pushing your limits. No matter what you do, if you are pushing yourself, you will stand out more.
As an entrepreneur, student or even a parent you must be able to push yourself more. Think of it this way: you are being more of an individual as you are giving your style of conducting yourself a personal flare.
Individuality comes with different ways of thinking. Firstly is just setting yourself aside from the pack.
Stop Being a Follower, but Why?
Why be a follower when you can be yourself?
There have and always will be trends that will skew what we think as individuals. Pop culture has this effect on people that is astonishing.
Followers naturally will limit themselves in life. If you are giving yourself an “ideal” way of thinking or seeing life, you won’t find much benefit on carrying out your daily life.
See the thing is:
When you are a follower, you will find that individuality no longer exists. This nearly voids the point of doing certain things in life.
Followers lack individuality, naturally.
Think about this: When you are a follower, the chances of you doing something that is different is slim. Like if you had a business idea after watching someone else execute on theirs, it kind of overlaps wouldn’t you say?
People like I said are impressionable. But why give in to this? There is no point in doing so. Especially with a trend, literally everyone else will take part in that trend (i.e. “Hover boards” which don’t really hover).
The True Benefit of Individuality
Being different or weird is what makes life fun.
There is no standard other than those that you set for yourself. Find your standard for you, and be YOU!!
So as you can see, the real benefit of being an individual is you standing out from the crowd. This applies to every aspect of your life (Work, School, Entrepreneurship etc.)
This one has been at the top of my list with how I want to express to you the importance of accepting who you are.
Yes, I do feel that this post has been all over the place a bit. But at the same time, we are working on gathering an idea in which we can develop ourselves on.
Individuality is important no matter what wake of life we are in. We can use it by being a parent (Think of the style of parenting you have and how you have to adapt), Build a business (Unless you stand out, it is hard to sustain a business) and many more aspects of our lives.
For a closing note for today, I want to leave you with this:
Don’t think of how you can be like someone, think of how you can be better.
