Play The Fool

Everything has to start somewhere. Nothing ever just appears. The great achievements we envy and aspire to started with small steps. Many fail because they never start. Those who attempt something and fail are considered failures. In reality, failures are the ones who never dared.

Those uncomfortable to stand out and be ridiculed will never do anything that matters.

They contribution (rather the lack of it) to humanity has no value.

Heretics however, are willing to be ridiculed. Being made a fool is part of the package of changing the world. If you are not willing to be stupid, you do not have what it takes to change the world.

Changing the world involves believing what many do not and will not believe. It means being comfortable with being passionate about what most will see pointless.

Changing the world is about nurturing the slightest possibility when the odds are not in your favor. The truth: it is really about being intentionally unreasonable. Changing the world is doing something just because ‘they’ say it cannot be done.

Changing the world is savage resolve. It is being ludicrous and loving it. It is expecting from people and yourself what everyone says is too much to ask. You ask because you recognize that there is greatness in you and others that must be harnessed to make the world a greater place.

Changing the world means you are never happy with the status quo and do not see it as anything to be endeared but loathed lovingly. Discontent when nothing is necessarily wrong is considered madness.

Comfort is what most strive for, but heretics know comfort as being the discomfort of constant change, because in change possibility for greater exists.

So, you want to change the world? Do you really want to change the world? Play the fool… Be bold. Be /ˈherətik/.
