People were always fascinated by the exceptions.
By the outliers.
By the geniuses.
By the inventors.
By the serial entrepreneurs.
By the people who made the impossible possible.
Back in the days, people knew that all of these were the exception and not the rule.
But with the rise of the Internet and social media, it's getting harder and harder to see what's the rule and what's the exception.
Social media amplifies the exceptions.
And makes it seem like everybody is like that.
That everybody is an outlier.
A serial entrepreneur.
That everybody is making the impossible possible.
Everybody except us...
But the truth is that everybody is more like us.
It's easy to mistake the exception for the rule and feel like you're not good enough.
But the truth is that you're just as good as everybody else.
And that's a way better starting point to becoming the exception, than it is to be upset about never being good enough...
