“In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different.” — Coco Chanel
Throughout human evolution, it paid off to fit in.
The more you meshed with those around you, the more peace there was. Natural hierarchies would form, and mostly everyone would play their role in survival. For those who decided to be different, the consequences were immense.
Even though this instinct to fit in still lives in our bones, the world has changed its priorities. The biggest rewards go to those willing to be different than the majority.
Where have you compromised to fit in? Take an action that will set you apart.
