I recently read an article on Yoko Ono and she said something that really resonated with me. "When I started out as an artist, I didn't get love; I got hate. Now I realize it was because artists are innovators- were not entertainers- and if you're innovating then naturally people don't understand you. So why should they love you? Innovators are very intimidating to society. Artists change society; they change the world".
Richard Branson also recently produced an article talking about normalcy titled, Who wants to be average? "The most talented, thought-provoking, game-changing people are never ‘normal’. They usually overcome great obstacles, take surprising routes to their goals, are often dysfunctional and under no circumstances do what people expect them to do."
This begs the question whether or not leopards ever actually change their spots. In my experience- you are who you are. You're going to make the choices based on what feels right to you and nothing is going to change that. In my case, I choose to wear leopard with stripes, which is meant to confuse the hell out of people. In reality, why would you ever want to be average? Being extraordinary is just so much more interesting.
