I don’t remember the first time I heard the statement “great minds think alike”
I’ve used it often. Usually when someone thinks of something I was thinking of and we are on the same wavelength about usually a menial task.
But, when I step back and actually think about the innovators of the world, they don’t think alike. They don’t think like the mainstream. They don’t think average thoughts. They don’t settle with the day in and day out. They don’t think alike.
Seriously, who are those people who you think of as innovators? Some synonyms for innovators are pioneer, trailblazer, spearhead, creator.
Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Oprah, Rachel Hollis, Dave Ramsey, Beyonce, and so many more. These are not people who think alike. They don’t think mainstream. They are trailblazers in their industry.
I think you are too. You are an innovator, you aren’t constrained to the mainstream.
You have a great mind, and it’s ok to not think alike.
