“Nice milkbottles, four-eyes! Are you blind?”
Much of my childhood consisted of hiding from that kind of shit.
To the extent where wearing my glasses in public still causes me an almost physical pain.
And that was just the start of it… because standing out at school is baaaaaaad news, right?
We’re hardwired to fit in. To get on.
To look the same.
There are good evolutionary reasons for blending in…
But as a business owner, it’ll kill you.
Because if you blend in, you don’t stand out.
And if you don’t stand out, nobody will notice you.
And if nobody notices you? Nobody will give a shit about you, and they certainly won’t buy from you.
But I get it: it’s scary.
Because we all remember those school days when standing out meant you got yelled out, ostracised, or a mild beating.
So we’re conditioned to blend in. We strive to be beige.
Which means when we have to do the opposite, it’s tough. Really tough.
