Dare to be different

9 Feb

“When everybody thinks alike, everyone is likely to be wrong.”– Neill

In his book The Art of Contrary Thinking, Neill describes how to avoid and recognize the dangers that “following the pack” can pose.

Although this book is in regards to the stock market which I know nothing about it absolutely applies to EVERYDAY life! Think about your workplace and your other relationships… reminds me of my Mom’s favorite saying when I would want to do what all my friends were doing…”If your friends jumped off a cliff, would you do that?” 

Stop and Think… more importantly, SHARE your thoughts, your thought may just make that change happen!
