Great People

“You’ll learn, as you get older, that rules are made to be broken.”
– Mandy Hale 

The world is full of so many people, only about .0086 percent of people are famous. Here is the crazy part though, everybody that is famous is not great, and the even crazier part is that everybody great is not famous. 

We live in a world where .0086 percent of people receive immeasurably more attention than everyone else. They are at an idol or a god-level in some people’s lives, it is pretty insane. 

On the flip side, the person sitting right next to you or in the apartments across the street may be one of the best people in the world. There is no way for you to know though because all of the attention from the world is not on them. 

The only way for you to figure it out is by getting out of your shell and not following the crowd. There are amazing people all around you, but there are also some famous people that absolutely trash. It is a personal choice to either get up and find the amazing people or follow all of the famous people that are already at the tips of our fingers.

In the end, we all want to be treated with love and respect some people just tend to go about it in different ways. It is a personal choice and one that we have all made but we also have the power to change it.
