I find that the very things that I get criticized for, which is usually being different and just doing my own thing and just being original, is the very thing that's making me successful.
You were born an original. Don't die a copy...
He claims to be homeless but sometimes even I have my doubts does not matter this young man is one of my favorite "homeless" in Chicago.
We see him every year and he moves around all over the city. The thing about him is that he always is smiling and always appears to be happy playing his instrument.
Maybe this is his strategy, because he always attracts a crowd and people seem to flock around him to deposit money in his bin. What does it for me is the sign. I mean why not be an original?
All the others have signs have hungry,veteran, kids starving and the usual. I am not making gun of anyone, but I think that sometimes being different gets the job done; does not matter what you do. This man is original, different and as far as I go likeable.
Being different from the crowd is probably what also attracts people to him. I asked him to smile so I could get his picture, and he said with pleasure.
Enjoy your day all and remember there is only one you!
Learn to... be what you are, and learn to resign with a good grace all that you are not...
