Are you normal?
If you were to ask yourself whether you are normal, what would you answer?
Before you answer, let’s think for a minute what it means to be normal these days ….
Today it is normal that you get home exhausted from a work you usually do not like, therefore, it is normal that you don’t have time for your children, and certainly not for your hobbies.
It is normal that you have no money and your bank account is always overdrawn.
It is normal to complain about the situation of the economy, the state, the politicians, but what can you do? We’re just normal people, so what that remains to do is to blame others: It is the most normal not to accept responsibility; This way we silence our conscience and can continue for another hour in front of the TV … ..
It’s normal to be a victim. This is true when you don’t have time to take responsibility (which is also not normal), and especially today, that “American Idol” is on (and tomorrow “Survivor” and the “Bachelorette”).
Divorce is normal, since who has time for a relationship these days?
Not execrising is normal. Eating unhealthy fast food is normal ….
It is normal that we do not have dreams anymore and that we do not try new things … some crazy people have tried and see what failures they have achieved (Thomas Edison, for example, failed 8000 times.)
5 years ago I have decided to be abnormal, left high-tech job with high, solid, stable salary (which many normal people would love to get) for my dream: A dream of freedom and self-expression.

I think I’m kind of abnormal too…, left my airline’s job.. try to struggle to build my own dream business..,
lol I am definitely NOT normal ;) I’ve been a crazy little rebel since my first breath!
I never wanted to be average and ordinary. Perhaps, average and ordinary is the standard for normal? I prefer to be weird and avoid average and ordinary. Call me anything accept average or ordinary.
Normal = Poor
Weird = Rich
who determines average and normal?? Nobody is average and nornal because we are all extraordinary!! The trouble is few of us are encouraged by society to believe we are unique and have much to contribute to our own lives and to the lives of others!
People rise to expectations so expect the best from yourself first and then from others and you will see amazing things happen!
Normal is not something that I have ever been called :) I have always pushed the envelope in life. Not just with doing the same thing you did and quit a high paying job in a worldwide corporation (which I did) but also with my children. I was always fighting the “system” to make sure they got what they needed and they are now happy, healthy and enjoy what they do for a living :) I have also been married for over 30 years now to my best friend. Definitely not the “normal”. lol Great post!
I am quite surprised that anyone would call me normal, in fact I couldn’t imagine why, however once I read your post I think I am the epitome of the world, thanks for my appraisal. Love your post Hezi, well done, LindsayShort
I hate being normal. Normal for a 21 year old college student is going to college, learning how to be an employee, and then going into the most insecure and unstable job market ever known in the history of the US.
Being normal sucks.
I love to be normal
It about being extraordinary and completing life with purpose. This means identifying what greatness you have within and connecting with the problems surrounding you and becoming the provider of the solution.
Life is better when working for yourself not because one should run away from the boss, but to fulfill a life purpose and contribute meaning. When our time is up…we can say that we fought for what we believed in, making the world a better place by overcoming within to affect the outside world for the better.
This is the meaning of legacy…..at least for me…. :)
this is a short post, but it speaks volumes. So, what your saying your not progressive, changing with the standards and views of others like shifting sand?
Who wants that kind of life. Nothing is certain and truth is all relevant.
History bear it out that the majority has been wrong many times…The best gifts we have from the creator is the ability to think for ourselves and choose the path in life we want to live.
Unfortunately I’m way too normal in a lot of aspects. Funny enough, who would think that trying to be abnormal is a good thing.
Yes, sometimes, especially in business, you need to do things that are not “ordinary”. 95% of the population are working at “normal” job, and they will look at you as if you are crazy. But as you said, being crazy can be a good thing in some cases (when done right).
Great Share! An impressive share, I just given this onto a colleague who was doing a little analysis on this. And he in fact bought me breakfast because I found it for him.. smile. So let me reword that: Thnx for the treat! But yeah Thnkx for spending the time to discuss this, I feel strongly about it and love reading more on this topic. If possible, as you become expertise, would you mind updating your blog with more details? It is highly helpful for me. Big thumb up for this blog post!
Yes, i am normal ;)
I love being normal.
