What Makes A Misfit?

There appears to be a societal expectation that a person must fit into a specific mold or they are not “normal” and must change in order to fit in properly with others. This concept has been used many times throughout history. People have been exiled because of their differing religious beliefs, gender choices, skin color, or anything else that deviates from the norm. Some well-known misfits include Steve Jobs, Betty White, Henry Ford, Elon Musk, Walt Disney, and JK Rowling.

We misfits do not comply to societal conventions. We are the individuals who do things differently, and we are frequently derided or attacked as a result. This is due to the fact that we live in a world where everyone is expected to look and act alike.

If you question residents in one region of the world, they will tell you that what constitutes their community is vastly different from what characterizes another. However, a closer examination reveals some common threads among all of us.

Misfits from all around the world demonstrate what makes them unique, why they choose to be themselves, and how society can benefit from their experiences. We are the ones that create art, change history, and improve society.

However, this does not imply that it is a free-for-all. Yes, even misfits must adhere to some rules. We aim to find the broader meanings and positive outcomes rather than looking for the negative, while recognizing that being able to see both is beneficial.

We understand that it is our mindset that keeps us stuck. We are the ones capable of absorbing all of that immense anguish and turning it into something genuinely amazing, whether it’s from past trauma, low self-esteem, or the conditioning we face throughout life. We’re here to bring you the future.
