An original mind is rarely understood, so get used to being misunderstood. We are all originals, which means to some degree we’ll all be misconceived by others in one way or another.

Originality is the entrance of personal style and expression in every sense of the word. It is creativity at its finest and creativity is a like a spigot—the more you turn it on and use it, the more new, original ideas will flow.

Don’t fret about having your originality misinterpreted: Only those stuck in unoriginal thinking will oppose you. Perhaps you’ll kickstart their thinking and they will thank you.

Originality is essential to inspiration and change. Be the change. As Nietzsche reminds us: “No price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.”

The more we own up to our originality, the more confidence we gain in our abilities. We learn to trust ourselves instead of looking to others for our answers. Remember the root of the word of originality is “origin”—the fountainhead from which we spring.
