There is nothing better you can do for yourself, than to BE AUTHENTIC. Rebel! Everyone is copy engineering, try being yourself and see where that takes you. It’s not the most popular decision, but it’s the MOST rewarding. Take it from me, because I have no choice but to be authentic.
Will you rub people the wrong way? Yes. Disappoint people in lieu of not doing what they expected? Yes. Will you lose out on some opportunities? Double yes.
It’s what happens when you’re creating YOUR OWN WAY.
But as I like to say..
May the bridges I burn light the way.
Scouts honor. “Know the rules well, so you can break them effectively.”–Dalai Lama
I’m going to share what I wrote on another social media source about rebellion, so you’ll understand the true cost within living in a creative and authentic state that SOLELY breeds success. I’m a walking testimony.
I’m starting to see more and more people confusing what it is to be a Rebel. They’re attaching it to a certain style. #urban
Rebellion is not burning down buildings, or going around to create disorder with hopes in getting what you want. In the eye of a mother, that’s just a child having a temper tantrum.
Rebellion is living outside of the status quo; the idea of what’s proper.
Rebellion is Jesus, Romeo and Juliet, Jack and Rose, Hamlet, Queen Elizabeth, Caesar, Martin Luther King Jr, and the countless others who stood against and in the eye of classism, race, sexual orientation, status etc., in the exchange of death.
Rebellion is Passion.
An acceptance of one’s own way, without structure.
Die than to be..
That’s passion, not insanity.
No barter, no exchange.
Rebellion– Living the way you see fit, without any regards to structured institutions. The acceptance of any circumstance in result of the way you’ve chosen to live. Even if it means death.
Rebellion is the Prodigal Son who never came back. #MyHero
