Separate Yourself From The Crowd

the path to success

The time has come to start separating yourself from the crowd.
If everybody was like everyone else, there wouldn’t be great innovations to enjoy.
The music we listen to, the movies we watch, the vehicles we admire, the gadgets we enjoy, the stories we read and all the lovely things that make life tick, were pieced together by individuals like you and I, who distinguished themselves by committing to unique tasks that make a difference.
You are unique and you have all it takes to standout.
You don’t have to insist on trends because all your friends have subscribed.
You don’t have to cluster in the mall because everyone else does that.
Why do we flood the schools and end up loosing creativity?
Why do we all have jobs and are broke the bulk of the time?
We may feel that we belong, simply because we get along with the trends but life is not just about belonging.
Every early morning; workers crowd the staff bus while students crowd the school bus and it never ends.
Are you interested in quantity or in quality?
You have so much inside of you that can make people yearn for you.
You have enough within you to keep you both entertained and provided for.
Why suffer from boredom when you are gifted with creativity?
Why seek solace in rowdiness when solitude can suffice?
“come out from among them and be ye separate”.
It is time to say to yourself;
“He that is in me is greater than he that is in the world”.
The treasure we seek far away are within our reach.
Don’t despise what you have in a bid to seek what you want; you might end up loosing both.
Groom what you already have and grow it.
You can only gather much by ensuring that non is lost.
If drops of water can make a mighty ocean and the journey of a thousand miles can begin with a step, then we must value every moment, every talent and every person that life has brought our way.
I would cherish a walk with my loved one over a ride with the crowd.
I will relish the moments in my closet that prepares me for the stage over the ones that perpetually leaves me as a spectator with the crowd.

It is not easy to standout; that’s how difficult it is to be yourself.

The path to the top might just be lonely, simply because it is not often trod.

“The path often trod not always the route to success”

About teeceecounsel

Who am I really? Can that be defined yet? Probably by the time I'm long gone and all the pieces of my activities are compiled and analysed then you can know what you want to know about me. Meanwhile, I write. Not because I love writing but because I love people. I love to care and love to share. I'm a deep thinker and I love to believe in the impossible. The ideal is attainable and a shot at it must be given. Don't say 'It won't work' rather ask 'how will it work? Nobody is ever doomed unless they made the choice. To resist good and to adopt evil is already doom. To loose hope is to choose doom but to believe that every step is a passing phase leading towards your hope is to choose progress. I may go on and on but my posts say it all. I don't force you to agree, I only say enjoy!

  1. Long time no see TeeCee! I missed your words of profound wisdom. Lovin’ everything that you said here today. God Bless! – Sherline 😀

    • God bless you too, Sherline.
      It really has been a while and I sure missed this platform.
      I am glad I could make out some time to put this together; there is so much demanding attention but it is well.
      Thank you so much for stopping by.

  2. Very good advice Son and yes to some we will be a bad smell but to others a Wonderful Fragrance when we live by and share God’s Truth. I find the Scriptures below to be very Reassuring and Uplifting when others reject His Truth and yes us too, preferring to trust in what Worldly Men and Woman propagate but as we know we have The Truth in God’s inspired Words in Scripture and it is Eternal.

    2 Corinthians 2:14-16 Now Thanks be to God who always leads us in Triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the Fragrance of His Knowledge in every place. For we are to God the Fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing. To the one we are the aroma of death leading to death and to the other the aroma of Life leading to Life. And who is sufficient for these things?

    Luke 6:21-23 Blessed are ye that hunger now for ye shall be filled. Blessed are ye that weep now for ye shall laugh. Blessed are ye, when Men shall hate you and when they shall separate you from their company and shall reproach you and cast out your Name as evil for the Son of Man’s sake. Rejoice ye in that day and leap for Joy for behold your reward is great in Heaven for in the like manner did their fathers unto the Prophets.

    1 John 3:1 Behold, what manner of Love the Father hath bestowed upon us that we should be called the Sons of God therefore the World knoweth us not because it knew Him not.

    2 Corinthians 4:3-5 But if our Gospel be hid it is hid to them that are lost in whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not lest the Light of the Glorious Gospel of Christ who is the Image of God should Shine unto them. For we preach not ourselves but Christ Jesus The Lord and ourselves your Servants for Jesus’ sake.

    2 Peter 1:19-21 We have also a more sure Word of Prophecy, whereunto ye do well that ye take heed as unto a Light that Shineth in a dark place until the Day Dawn and the Day Star arise in your Hearts. Knowing this first that no Prophecy of the Scripture is of any private interpretation. For the Prophecy came not in old time by the will of Man but Holy Men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost (1Corinthians2:9-16 KJV)

    2 Timothy 3: 16-17 All Scripture is given by Inspiration of God and is profitable for Doctrine, for Reproof, for Correction, for Instruction in Righteousness. That the Man of God may be Perfect and thoroughly furnished unto all Good Works.K.J.V

    Colossians 4:5 Walk in Wisdom toward them that are without redeeming the time. Let your speech be always with grace seasoned with Salt that ye may know how ye ought to answer every Man.

    John 15:17-19 These things I Command you that ye Love one another. If the world hate you ye know that it hated me before it hated you If ye were of the World, the World would love his own but because ye are not of the World but I have chosen you out of the World therefore the World hateth you.

    Proverbs 1:7 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of Knowledge but fools despise Wisdom and Instruction.

    I have missed you Son, have you been away or just very busy ? having moved into a New Home I’m very busy unpacking etc but I’m looking forward to Christmas and the New Year and hopefully will find more time for Blogging but I would value your Prayers as I had an accident on my Mobility Scooter and I’m often in pain, which is why it’s taking me so long to Settle in, I may need an Operation but I’m hoping not, God healed me before much more than once but He also uses Doctors etc they are all His tools but He is our only Healer.

    Christian Love Son and God’s Blessings,
    Grannie Annie.

    • It is well Grannie Annie, God will heal you as He has always done.
      I have missed you too.
      I have not really been away; I should say I have been very busy.
      God’s grace with your packing and unpacking… It is well.
      Like you pointed out; the world can reject us or reject the truth.
      That would not bother us, if we truly know our worth and the treasures deposited in us.
      Where the challenge lies is that sometimes (more often than not), we trust the supposed experts and consultants or just follow the trend and do what everyone else is doing.
      It gets so bad that we begin to compare ourselves and feel inferior when we are not privileged to attain certain portfolio or acquire certain material that others have.
      We are all designed differently and cut out for different purposes; we can only be effective and operate maximally when we identify our uniqueness and leverage on it.
      Yes, as we love one another as we love ourselves, we must promote collaboration and discourage unhealthy competition that breeds strife, envy, jealousy, anger, hatred and the likes.
      We must set our priorities right and give more time to family and true friends rather than spread ourselves so thin that we are neither effective outside nor at home.
      We must better our lot and increase our capacity to accommodate others.
      The list may be endless but we can only achieve this by discovering and awakening the giant within.
      It has been written on the tablets of our hearts; only that we are too occupied looking outward to recognize the treasures we’ve got within.
      We have friends and family that we despise to please strangers and acquaintances.
      We have our own dark areas that we ignore and struggle to light up others.
      We must first love ourselves before we discover what it truly takes to love others.
      The ego, the greed, the deceitfulness of man all add up to drain us and to erode our value, especially when we attempt satisfying everyone or replicating the supposed successes of everyone.
      Thank you for always stopping by with your wealth of experience and knowledge.
      It can only get better.
      Be strong.
      I await the testimony of your health.
      I’m joining you to look forward to Christmas and New year.
      All the best!

      • Wow there is a lot of Truth in your Reply Son and yes when we have God’s Love for ourselves but of course not Narcissist self love and ego, than we can Love others even when they don’t Love us.

        Blessings – Grannie Annie.

      • Thank you once again, Grannie Annie.
        I agree with you.
        God’s love is the kind that lets the sun shine on both the good and the evil. Our love even for ourselves must be in the best interest of everyone. Like you rightly pointed out, some people strive to suppress others or scheme to be celebrated at the expense of others.
        Keep on exuding the God kind of love that is in you.
        Best regards.
