Let's get weird!

"I used to think that anyone doing anything weird was weird. I suddenly realized that anyone doing anything weird wasn't weird at all and it was the people saying they were weird that were weird."

- Paul McCartney 

 

 

I'm weird.  Not just the normal kind of weird, though.  I go out of my way to be seen as weird.  I have a personal philosophy, I want to always be the weirdest person in the room.

 

 

Sounds pretty weird right?  My job here is done!

 

 

Seriously though, weirdos change the world.  The people who accept, and even embrace being the person who always does the unexpected and wacky, are the people who disrupt in all areas of their life.  The kind of person who is willing to go to a party and act strange, outlandish, wacky, or weird and own whatever response they get.  That person has what it takes to be the next Steve Jobs.

 

 

Weirdness is confidence.  By making a conscious choice to be a bit strange, I constantly exercise my confidence.  I push myself to "own it" no matter how many raised eyebrows, or disapproving looks I get.   Look at Mr. Jobs, the guy was fired for being weird, and when he eventually came back to Apple his weirdness made them into one of the most successful tech companies ever. Steve Jobs was nothing if not weird and confidant.

 

 

I'm not alone in my weirdness!  Homeschoolers are quite often considered weird by our peers.  In fact, it's one of the main factors many people site in why they don't want to Homeschool their kids. We seem weird because we have the confidence to do our own thing, no matter what the world thinks.  Check out my friend Philip's post for more about Homeschoolers weirdness!

 

 

So go out there and be weird! Act strange, and don't give a damn what other people think, in time people will realize how freaking awesome it is to be weird!
