3. Choose the Path of the Black Sheep In the words of Chris Herd, founder of Nexves: “There is one character trait that every successful person I have ever encountered all have: an immunity to peer pressure.” If you do what everyone else is doing, you’ll get what everyone else has. If you want big change, you need to make big changes. It’s lonely at the top of the mountain. Those few who have reached world-class success have gone against the grain time and time again. They’ve ruffled feathered, flipped the status quo, and bothered more people than they can remember. World-class success requires world-class choices. One of the most difficult of these choices is to be a black sheep: Do things most people don’t do Act in ways many people think are crazy Say things people might not understand Believe things people might find arrogant or stupid Henry Ford, creator of one of the first automobiles, once said: “If I had asked people what they wanted, they would have said faster horses.” When you choose the path of the black sheep, you invariably draw ire and criticism from the rest of the herd. But you also place yourself in a position to do what no one else has ever done, or ever accomplished. As Douglas MacArthur once said: “You are remembered for the rules that you break.”
