Happiness lies in the Un-Average
It’s nice and simple when you think about it fully. If you don’t want an average life, you have to stop acting like you have an average life. You have to think differently than an average person, you have to work harder than an average person…AND…you have to take criticism from an average person because they don’t understand your way of thinking. You have to feel differently, smell different smells and touch other peoples lives, not just your own. You have to care about others more than yourself, because you’re not average. You have to do more than another person and when you get tired, sleep well and hard in the knowledge that you put an honest, hard, non-average day’s work in. Sleep hard because you’ll need your energy for tomorrow’s hard, honest, non-average day”s work.
And when you get there; when you become non-average, I promise you, you will find happiness there. Happiness lies in the fact that you contributed to this world in some way, the happiness in the fact that you helped another or other people with want of nothing in return. Happiness is waiting for you there, in that place, where music meets art. Love her his best friend and comes round to her house for dinner most nights and just chills on the sofa watching a DVD or something. Love is ready to shake your hand too.
But they have to wait. The only thing they’re waiting on is for you not to be average. So make the choice, follow your personal dream or talents you have been given and live them and use them daily. It sounds like a cliche but if you do something that you like to do, do it without apology or explanation to anyone else. If they are average, if they live an average life and criticize like an average person, look them straight in the eyes and tell them: ‘You make a good point with your realism, it may be impossible for an average person to achieve, it is a tough, long road to success…but not impossible to me…because I’m not average.’ Good Luck, we’ll all see you when you get here. We’ll put a pint on the house for you for working your magic.
