Every great song writer has been scorned at some stage.
Every great comedian has been heckled.
Every great preacher has had listeners who thought they were nuts.
Every great entrepreneur has had their ideas mocked.
Every great parent has methods that other parents think are crazy.
Every great writer has had their ideas rejected.
Every great athlete has made a blunder at an important moment.
Every great person has been ridiculed at some stage of their life.
Do you want to be great?
Then you had better be more ridiculous.
Stop playing it safe.
Take seemingly absurd risks.
Be true to your calling.
No-one ever changed the world playing it safe.
