If, people like you had stuck to rules women would still be living a restricted life. If, people like you had stuck to rules men and women would still be living together in a ‘pretend marriage´ rather than face facts that their relationship doesn’t work. School children would still be passive and expected to repeat everything teacher said. Divorced women would still be shunned by society. There would still be a lack of opportunity for have nots to develop their abilities.
When you look around you can see many successful people who didn’t conform to rules.
Imagine Dali sticking to rules. Would you go to see his art?
Imagine if Elvis Presley had stayed within rules. Where would we be now?
Henry Ford broke rules and produced cars on a production line.
Bill Gates broke rules by believing that every household could have a computer.
Steve Jobs broke rules and gave us Apple.
Martin Luther King broke rules and gave us a different way of living.
Just stop for a minute. Think of someone, either alive or dead, you admire.
What is it about them you like?
When we did this, all people in our list had tremendous courage. They all stood up for what they believed in. They all broke accepted rules of day to give us a better world to live in.
In our experience rule bound behaviour stifles growth. Rule bound behaviour stifles individual.
Are you a person who plays by rules or are you living by your values and making world a better place to live in?
