I recently talked with Seth Godin about his new book – We Are All Weird and wanted to share it with you.
Seth says, “This book is personal, heartfelt and urgent. I hope that you’ll take the time to read it. In the words of the philosopher Dr. Seuss, We are all a little weird and life’s a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love.”
We humans crave connection and while the Internet has expanded our world, we still want to belong to a group of like-minded people. The book details how we are now in silos of tribes of like-minded people who support our weirdness. Seth argues in this book that the choice to push all of us toward a universal form of normal or plain vanilla is inefficient and wrong. The opportunity is for us to embrace our uniqueness and passions, and become weird.
The tribes I am in are those that support women for their successes (no back biting allowed), they stand for human rights, animal rights, organic and healthy food, saving the planet, moving women out of poverty and out from the margins of life, for peace not war, and to help women start their own business. I am freedom fighter – I fight for women to find emotional and financial freedom in their lives.
What do you stand for? Are you embracing your weirdness?
