“The one who follow the crowd will usually go no further than the crowd. Those who walk alone are likely to find themselves in places no one has ever been before”.
- Albert Einstein
This Albert Einstein quote highlighted the problem of following others. We all follow the crowd in certain aspects. We follow the trends, we dine at popular restaurants, we follow other people’s paths. Even when we pick stocks, sometimes we follow pick of the majority. But Einstein understood one problem of following the crowd – you will just be one of them if you follow. When it comes to thinking, learning, and walking out own lives, we cannot follow the crowd. We should not think like the crowd; learn from the crowd and live our lives like the crowd. If we think like the crowd, we can only be a normal thinker; if we learn from the crowd on any subject matter, we will never be the best; if we live our lives like the crowd, we will lose our individuality gradually.
