When you understand yourself and the game that you are playing in, you learn how to manuever inside of that game to create something in a way that is unique to you and powerful for the world around you. Don't get caught up in the conventional wisdom of conformity. That's the game that everyone wants you to play because it's comfortable for them.
The only problem is you weren't placed here for the sake of other people's comfort. You were placed here to be a catalyst for change.
