This is a weird declaration: Only the weird people change the world. What I’m saying here? Do you think that I’m a complete nuts?

The ‘Weirds’ are different because they think and act different. Utterly uncomfortable and allergic to the status quo, they don’t ignore the tension inside their hearts. Igniting the fire of possibilities, they open their eyes to dream while the majority are sleeping.

The ‘normals’ are making fun of them because these idealist pursue endeavors that are not taught in school or against the cultural safety net. But they learned to listen to their own inner voice rather than the insecure opinions of others.

Weird people push the boundaries of human thinking and potential. They are dreamers who wants to make this world a little better than when they found it. They are not just existing to survive, avoid punishment or seek temporary rewards. No, they are creating art with their lives because they are passionate and yearning to belong to something or Someone bigger than themselves. They are living for revival not just survival.

They are game changers whose hearts is on fire. They have guts to endure the push-downs of dream-stealers. They run in the real arena of life and play with their hearts out.

Meet them.
  • Steve Jobs. “Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure - these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.”
  • C.S. Lewis. “If I find in myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world.”
  • Mother Teresa. Love until it hurts.
  • Albert Einstein. The symbol of genius.
  • Martin Luther. The igniter of the Christian reformation.
  • Martin Luther King Jr. The dreamer of freedom.
  • Mahatma Gandhi. “Be the change that you wish to see in the world.”
  • Mark Zuckerberg. Without him, no selfie.
  • Walt Disney. Disney.
  • Masura Ibuka. Make. Believe. Sony.
  • Masashi Kishimoto. Giver of life to Naruto.
  • Abraham Lincoln. Humility + Will.
  • Jack Dorsey. Tweet tweet.
  • Bill Gates. The man with the fattest wallet.
  • Jeff Bezos. Already shopped at Amazon.com?
  • J.K. Rowling. “The boy who lived.”
  • Paul. Christianity without his leadership? No way.
  • Jesus. The weirdest of all because He’s the Greatest of all.
Are you ready to be one? You don’t need to look like one. You just have to think and act like one. 

People will often say, “What are you thinking? Are you airhead?” But remember that being one is never been comfortable. But boy, I’m sure it’s fulfilling.

Because at the end of the day, it’s impossible to make any difference if you’re not willing to be different. Be different and make a difference!
