Perspective

Do not do something because of others.
  • Don't do something because you want to be ahead of others.
  • Don't do something because by doing it, others will compliment you for it.
  • Don't do something because others aren't, and you simply want to be different.
  • Don't do something because others are, and you want to be current.
  • Don't do something because others told you to.
  • Don't do something because others told you not to, and you feel cool being a rebel.
Do something because you enjoy doing it, you believe it brings value to your life, and you just know that it's the right thing to do.

"Don't do something because others aren't, and you simply want to be different."

It's not wrong to be different, isn't it?
It's cool to be different from others.

Just my cheap own opinions.

Peace!

Diana Rikasari said...

thank you, everyone...:)

Kasmawati Jaafar : of course there's nothing wrong with being different than others...:) what i meant was, don't decide to do something based on a sole reason that it makes you different than the rest, but at the end of the day brings no value for ourselves. instead, i think it wud be better to do something that we personally love, because we know it's best for us, and be creative with it. without us knowing, being true to ourselves has already led us to being different than the crowd. it's just about the mindset really...thanks! :)
