Elvis was the king of rock ‘ n’ roll, Michael is the king of pop and Steve Jobs is the KING of marketing, because Steve revolutionized how to get consumers. It was not about beating competition, it was about getting the consumer differently, and I just love it!
Jobs was passionate about the products he sold, and wanted to change the world, and he fucking DID! I love passionate people that obsess over what they love. He also understood his consumers were humans, and because of this Apple’s earlier ads were very emotional; their Think Differently commercial is my love. I have watched it 100000 times because it reassures me that being the square peg in a round hole is perfectly okay. I will always dance to my own beat.
If you do not love yourself how the hell is anyone else supposed to love you? If you do not believe in your own ideas how the hell is anyone else supposed to? If you doubt your own beauty others will find you ugly. That last one is a bit exaggerated but you get the idea? Right?
Everyone in the world is insecure about something. Everyone. There are no exceptions. The people you see as “perfect” look in the mirror and see something they dislike about their own reflection. Intelligent people find themselves questioning their own minds, and the overachievers often believe their lives did not turn out according to their plan. We all have insecurities where as others are insecure. If you are insecure you finish last.
You think someone like Steve Jobs was insecure? He created a company from inside of his home. He quit college. He came from a working class family that could not afford to put him through college, and he was adopted. Jobs believed in himself, he was passionate about his work therefore others believed in him. Confidence sells a product long before it can sell itself.
Lucille Ball was one of the first women to find success in comedy. She was also the first woman to own a production company. She had to create I Love Lucy, because in the 1950s networks believed America would never accept a biracial couple into their homes. Lucy said “okay fine”, I will make my own television show. I Love Lucy became the first syndicated show in American history. You think she suffered from insecurity? She may have doubted herself for a second but at the end of the day she knew she would succeed, and that is why she did.
Lets talk about you. Me? Yeah, YOU! The one reading this blog..if you do not have self love nobody else will love you. Insecure women attract assholes, because they pry on their lack of self-esteem. A confident woman scares this type of male (or female), therefore they are less likely to date them. If you want a great significant other you must first find the greatness in yourself. If you want to become the best at your career you must believe you are the best. Insecure people finish last and will get run over by those that lack self doubt.
I have always been a bit weird. When I was a little girl, I thought there were small people in the car radio that sang and that is where music came from. I used to contemplate different ways I could open up the speaker and steal those tiny people. I have no idea where this strange thought came about.
When I was six I learned how to write. It was like falling in love for the first time, because it was something I was good at. I was never athletic, I sucked at math and I was incredibly shy but I could do anything with a pencil and a piece of notebook paper. It was here on out I knew I wanted to be a writer. I love telling stories, I love exaggerating and most of all I adore creating characters. Mine are so precise, I let you know who they are down the last freckle.
Writers are crazy. We have a few screws loose in our brains, they were probably never screwed on tight to begin with but that is what makes us special. Crazy people that think outside of the box change the world, because they were not afraid to follow their dreams, get belittled and created their own rules instead of following others.
So be weird please..think outside of the box..dress how you want to and don’t be afraid of criticism. It is all a part of life.
