Observe the crowd.
“The artist must stand alone to observe the crowd.”
I never watched Gossip Girl, but I like this quote.
The same applies to anyone who wants to create something new and make a difference in this world. For them, the most certain way to fail is always to follow the crowd. While they try to fully understand what others do, they never follow the path taken by the majority.
Don’t be afraid of being different. Or ignored. Or disliked. Unless you choose to follow the crowd for the rest of your life.
