The Few > The Many

The salvation of mankind depends upon independent thinkers directing their thoughts rightly. —RALPH WALDO EMERSON

"To find out what you love to do demands a great deal of intelligence; because, if you are afraid of not being able to earn a livelihood, or of not fitting into this rotten society, then you will never find out. But, if you are not frightened, if you refuse to be pushed into the groove of tradition by your parents, by your teachers, by the superficial demands of society, then there is a possibility of discovering what it is you really love to do. So, to discover, there must be no fear of not surviving."

Krishnamurti, J. . Think on These Things

The few always compel the many, though not always at first.

Many of the greatest minds we still revere today—Socrates, Einstein, Gandhi, Mother Teresa, MLK, Steve Jobs—did not find early success in their endeavors. Some failed to receive the recognition they deserved in their lifetimes. Either way, the outcome is the same: humanity was forever changed for the better.

The modern marvels we appreciate today—the wheel, the steam engine, the printing press, penicillin, Rockefeller's oil network, Tesla's DC current, the Internet, the telephone, the iPhone, the computer, the laptop, Bitcoin—were given to us by the few.

What can we learn by studying these individuals? One thing stands out: their ability to go their own way. It's not that every innovator or great thinker was iconoclastic lone wolves out to buck the trend, but most of the time, they were. To change the world requires thinking outside of the box, which requires you to rise above conformity's limited perspective.

The higher life requires you to pursue your passions regardless of societal pressure. To become your highest self requires a rebellion against authority, orthodoxy, and conformity.

Humanity gets better one individual at a time.

Your life gets better one individual pursuit at a time.
