It’s ok to be round pegs in square holes. To be offbeat, crazy or different. To be bored with the status quo, with a hunger to change the world. You will need to be passionate and resilient. From the ‘you’ll never make it’, and then the ‘tall poppy’ taunts. You will need clarity and imagination, as to where you are heading and the goal. It’s OK to work hard to make a difference. A future you influenced and changed, thinking big and being brave.
