HAPPY NEW YEAR 2023   

Disclaimer: Good Day, Readers.  WealthBuildingPowers blog is a financial literacy/competency blog and does not provide specific investment recommendations.  

AND A SPECIAL HAPPY NEW YEAR TO MY FELLOW MISFITS!  

I confess I am a lifelong misfit. Waterboarding is NOT required to get my confession. Carrot Cake, works MUCH BETTER! 

Being a misfit can be a good thing because it can allow a person to think differently and bring fresh perspectives to a group or situation. Like many misfits, I am an introvert and avid reader who loves to learn and tackle real-world problems. My natural traits allowed me to excel in my career.

As a misfit, I struggled to make true friends in High School and College. I had a few fake friends, and we quickly lost contact after school. The people I was attracted to, with similar values and aspirations, have remained steadfast and good friends. Friends I learn from and rely on. 

IT IS YOUR UNIQUENESS THAT MAKES YOU EXCEPTIONAL 

Years ago, at the back of the classroom sat a boy whose teachers considered him a misfit.   When the teacher called on him, he struggled with words. The teacher informed the boy’s parents the child had no prospects; how could he when he couldn’t even form a sentence?  A few years later, the boy is expelled for being rebellious and negatively influencing his peers. 

The boy mentioned above was Albert Einstein, who, after being expelled, went on to win the Nobel Prize and become one of the world’s most famous scientists. 

Imagine if his parents had listened to that teacher!
