Challenge yourself to be thoroughly different – not because it’s cool, but because it forces you to go beyond the obvious.
Power Players are not fans of generic. They colour outside the lines and they are comfortable doing this.
Being different keeps them sharp and interesting. It helps them to offer up new ideas and new solutions to old problems. It’s easy to say and do (and think) like everyone else. But it takes real gumption to seek out the new and unproven.
It also means that Power Players are always searching for better. Being better takes real commitment. It means questioning accepted wisdom and reaching for more. And Power Players know that if they’re striving for different, they should be thoroughly different indeed.
As the world becomes more and more beige, Power Players are intent on adding the colour. And this is a very good thing indeed.
