“Great spirits have always encountered opposition from mediocre minds. The mediocre mind is incapable of understanding the man who refuses to bow blindly to conventional prejudices and chooses instead to express his opinions courageously and honestly.” Albert EinsteinAlbert Einstein
Einstein expressed his opinions, and beliefs despite not having everyone in the room in agreement. If he had allowed them to sway his direction of thought, he would never have made the ground breaking discoveries he is renown for today.
Never allow the narrow minded opinions of others define who you are. Otherwise, you do harm to your potential trying to be ‘conventional’ by not going against group think.
