Indeed the statement sounds a bit vague, but the meaning behind it is as strong as any knowledge a wise mentor would bestow upon you. We’re expected to abide by the notion that one ought to do things by the book and stick to the suggested paths of life because this is what has been working for years and years. Well, pardon us, society because we beg to differ.
The ‘box’, with its confining rigidity and squareness, symbolizes constrained and unimaginative thinking. This is in contrast to the open and unrestricted ‘out of the box’ or ‘blue-sky’ thinking we refuse to abandon.
Being forced to agree with stagnation and going on the “right path” is a road for people with no ambition or pride. People like you, the Elite, who are fearless and take risks, are not ones to be forced into this imaginary box that this society imposes upon us.
The phrase “think outside the box” is one which everyone should be living by. This is where innovation thrives and new risks are taken. If no one ever thought outside the box and just stayed on the monotonous path of life we would have never grown as a society.
It is imperative to never let anyone tell you how you should be thinking or how something should be done, it should be completely up to you and your mind how to innovate what has been put in front of you and be a pioneer in this world.
If it wasn’t for Steve Jobs thinking outside the box and reinventing the traditional mp3 player we would most likely have none of the apple products we have today. If it wasn’t for Avicii and Guetta taking traditional techno beats and mixing them with vibrant vocals we would still be listening to 50 Cent. If it weren’t for these innovators and these people thinking outside of the box our world as we know it would be in pure stagnation.
Who are the People who think outside the box? The vast majority of the leaders of this world and some of the most successful people on this planet. They did not achieve success because they did what they were suppose to do, but because they did what everyone called them crazy for doing. Innovative thinking needs to be apart of your everyday train of thought as it will only help you grow as a person and take you to the next level this we assure.
Everyone always wonders how to avoid being stagnant. The solution is very simple; be creative and think outside the lines like no one else would. Don’t let anyone tell you something is the norm just because it has been done for so long. A stagnant mind goes no where but a innovative mind can conquer the world. Be elite.
