The Catholic Book of Character and Success: Chapter Notes
Chapter Seventeen: Be Yourself.
- God has made us all different and it is our differences that makes us interesting.
- The greatest benefactors and geniuses who came before us have bravely excelled in their differences from their fellow men, without fear.
- You may remain hidden from public attention but you have a social circle that depend on you to some degree for help or cheer.
- Cultivating your differences will help your group. Our notable and interesting quirks will be lost if we try to blend in or clone ourselves in imitation of others.
- It is refreshing to come across interesting characters. They are interesting by their individuality.
- Brush off your own individual characteristics and let not timidity dampen your uniqueness and talents.
- Following the crowds in fashion is clothing, tastes, opinions makes a man humdrum and boring.
- This unfortunate monotony makes interesting people and places premium.
- Those who are different, interesting, unique will always attract new friends and opportunities because of that tendency.
- Organisations who surround their leaders with sycophantic and or humdrum middle managers limit or even damage themselves: there is always room at the top for integrity and diversity.
- Cultivate your positive individual differences and be yourself.
- God made you as you are and by being attentive to your uniqueness you will soon find yourself an opportunity that you are especially qualified to fill.
