Fads, Trends & Foolishness – Part I

   Posted by: Jimason   in General

Nuggets from – “For Adults Only: Keys to Unlocking Your Destiny”

Too often, people follow fads and trends with no understanding of what it all means. They work hard to fit into social cliques that have nothing to do with their Destiny. As a result, they allow the world around them to tell them who they are and how they should live – becoming something that is far beneath their potential. The price for this social acceptance is their uniqueness. This is why I say often; why settle for being a carbon copy when you were created to be an original?

The hairstyles, tattoos, body piercings, and baggy pants drooping below the butt are not marks of uniqueness but of conformity. In addition, the only illogical reason for anyone to start smoking is to fit into a group or to appear cool – regardless of the fact that it can cause cancer and early death. Unfortunately, many people rather conform instead of being transformed, by the renewing of their minds. Conformity is only possible when an individual does not know, who they are and where they are going in life.

Just because something has been done for a long time, does not mean we should continue to do it or that it is right. At one time, slavery was acceptable but it was never right. Chasing fads and trends can cost you your Destiny. Therefore, you must learn to appreciate your uniqueness and value what you bring to the world, instead of chasing people or things that you deem valuable. Below are some key words you need to understand:

Unique = existing as the only one or as the sole example; single; solitary in type or characteristics. Having no like or equal; unparalleled; incomparable; not typical; unusual. – Dictonary.com

Original = new; fresh; inventive. An original work, writing, or the like, as opposed to any copy or imitation. A person whose way of thinking or acting is original. – Dictonary.com
