We all take pride in saying that we're not like everyone else. But 97% of the world is. They just don't know it yet. And why? Because that 97% of the world refuses to accept change.
Coming to performances, why is it that we all hear the word "Magic" and we think, oh he's going to cut XYZ in half, he'll fly, probably vanish something and make a rabbit or a bikini clad girl appear. We hear "I'm in a band." And 97% of us think, oh it's going to be rock music or metal or something along those lines. Why? Can't it be a band of Sufi singers? Or is that not cool enough?
Steve Jobs once said, "People don't know what they want until you show it to them." But why is it that we need someone to show it to us? Why can't we think differently and show the world something that everyone will want?
Why is it, that a boy and a girl just sitting in a park at around 8 in the evening, just talking as friends, doing nothing else, just talking. Yet they are presumed to be making out in a public area? Because that's what we were taught, and we refuse to think beyond that.
Why is it that if a teenager says, "I hate to party." People immediately start assuming, "Oh what a boring person, he's a loser, nobody wants to be around him." We think like that, because we're influenced by the masses to behave in a way everyone is, and not to be different.
We are all trapped by the 'world' all of us have created for ourselves, which includes living normally, doing what everyone else does for fear of being called "different." Because the line that says, "He is different" triggers thoughts of a person being mentally disabled or physically challenged or a 'creep.'
I hate to party. I hate going to pubs and bars and discos and all these places with loud music that people with you can't even hear you. Yet, I'm liked by people around me.
I may sound self obsessed, but I'm proud to think, that I'm different. Are you?
