The education system is unfortunately a government raided, corrupted, global operation that our nation’s youth cannot evade. I’ve found that pursuing the societal demand of a clear and apparent status quo may, yes, secure you a spot in our comfy little community of authority obeying individuals, but the minute you surrender to its control, the minute you become part of the weak-minded.
TBWA/Chiat/Day, a reputable independent advertising firm devised one of Apple’s primary, major marketing campaigns called “Think Different.” The 1997 television commercial inspired the likes of many, not only to push consumer’s to purchase Apple products, but to relate with a demographic majority on a very personal level, which in my opinion should be the blueprints of any advertising agency agenda. I know this whole heartedly, because it affected me in such a manner.
“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
If you want to make a difference in this world, make one with passion, assertion, and grace. A sturdy backbone is essential and I advise that you ensure the sustainability of your grand plan. Help yourself, but make sure the final outcome of helping yourself will help the world around you. If your intentions aren’t positive, they should not exist at all. Teach and advise to those that need, and bare suggestion and wisdom from those that offer. Your intelligence is not an entitlement, but the result of a hustle for everything you’re worth.
