Try to be different,don’t try to be the best.Don’t try to be always number one.You can’t always win, you have to deal with the loses too.
Why is important to be different ?
If you consider your self as a different person.That’s great! You think different, you look different. Don’t listen to the haters, don’t listen what people are telling you.This is your life! Different people are most likely to succeed.For example take a quick look on people like Mark Zuckerberg , Steve Jobs , etc.
You have to build audience.On the road to success you will be alone.Nobody is going to join you at the beginning but everyone will be crawling to reach you while you are on the top.Saying what you really thing will cost a lot lost friends but it will gain you new, better friends.
In 2013, a college student wrote a brutally honest cover letter to Wall Street banks. Here is a snippet of what he wrote:
“I have no qualms about fetching coffee, shining shoes or picking up laundry, and will work for next to nothing. In all honesty, I just want to be around professionals in the industry and gain as much knowledge as I can.
I won’t waste your time inflating my credentials, throwing around exaggerated job titles, or feeding you a line of crapp (sic) about how my past experiences and skill set align perfectly for an investment banking internship. The truth is I have no unbelievably special skills or genius eccentricities, but I do have a near perfect GPA and will work hard for you.”
This cover letter was a viral hit and this kid got a job because it was so refreshingly honest.
