Sacrifice leads to success; winning is the definition of hard work; being different defines your uniqueness, and to map out a path is your strategy to outwit your competitors.
You cannot be ordinary and standout from the crowd. You cannot do what everyone else is doing and become exceptional.
After seeing Vera Obeng’s pictures of her wedding trending on social media because of its uniqueness, I started to chat with her to ask why she will settle for that simple dress and those boots and not the traditional women’s high heels shoes and long dress on her special day and the answer was simple; being a photographer and seeing women struggling in those high heels for the umpteenth time, I decided to do something different that is unique and trendy. To me this is the only way to standout from the crowd, break tradition and set the pace for others to follow.
Hence I was among those people who were shocked when they met her uniqueness on social media. Therefore at the initial stages in pursuit of uniqueness– people are more likely to criticise negatively because they may not be used to your level of uniqueness, or if what you present doesn’t fall within their average routine of mediocrity.
However, when your uniqueness start selling, they will be amazed and will certainly appreciate how being different is the foundation of any successful journey in life.
Always remember it’s possible if only you believe.
