It’s OK to be Different

Some people have told me they fear public speaking because they think differently than other people and other people would not understand their view. Some people have told me they don’t socialize or network because they act differently than other people and other people would not accept them. It’s alright to be different. I walk with a cane, I don’t drive, my voice is a little scratchy, and I think much differently than most people, but those are not valid reasons to avoid making decisions and taking action. As you will see in the following video, you are not the only person who thinks differently than others.

Don’t let being different stop you from doing the things you can do. Don’t allow failure to prevent your success.
