I Dare You To be Great


“Unless you choose to do great things with it, it makes no difference how much you are rewarded, or how much power you have.” –Oprah Winfrey

I’ve always known myself to be normal and so have many other people.  Most of you have lived your lives making sure you’re normal, always in the comfort zone. We want the society to accept us and love us for abiding by it’s rules.

Then one day you change. You become yourself. You’re daring and unafraid and the world notices this immediately. You are bombarded with questions and dissapointed heads shake. “You were so different, what happened to you?”. They don’t notice it’s who you are, who you’ve always been.

When this happens you become so overwhelmed that you want to go back to how it was  before, Normal but its too late the damage is already done. You can’t go back you won’t move forward.

Today though, I dare you to be great as cliche as it sounds.  Write on a controversial topic. Try something new. Sing like you’ve never sang before,  be charitable and visit the needy. Pick your stand and defend it, debate it and stand by it. And when the world accuses you,  look them in the eye and say ‘So what if I’m  different! ‘.
