You think differently and live life outside the box. You don’t follow the rules. You like to create and innovate. You are a game changer. You love to be different, think differently, and you actually want to change the world.
Sounds like you, doesn’t it?
This short video details the characteristics of your WHY, the challenges that
come with your WHY, and the solutions to those challenges.
You don't believe in following the rules or drawing inside the lines. You want things to be fun and exciting and diferent and you rebel against the classic way of doing things. You typically have eccentric friends and eclectic tastes because after all, why would you want to be normal? You love to be diferent, think diferently, and challenge virtually anyone or anything that is too conventional and typical. Pushing the envelope comes naturally to you.
The biggest challenge by far for those who share your WHY is that you are generally unaware of it and therefore do not appreciate what a unique gift it truly is. Others find you odd or strange and don't understand your behavior. You may be viewed as "the crazy one" and ostracized because of it. You may be excluded from gatherings, opportunities and relationships because of the way that you are perceived. People don't "get you."Because of this, you may feel misunderstood or not valued and have a hard time getting along in normal circumstances.
In your case the solution is most efective though not obvious and requires a bit of tact. It is imperative that you let people know about your WHY, about the fact that you are diferent, that you do enjoy challenging the status quo and coming up with in-novative and novel ways of looking at things. Invite people to bring new challenges that need a fresh pair of eyes or an out-side-the-box solution. When someone knows about your WHY, instead of being the "weird one" you morph into the cool person that simply thinks differently. It has been our experience that for people who share your WHY, gaining the awareness that you are in fact different, that there is nothing wrong with you and quite the contrary, that you have a rare gift that few others share has been nothing short of transformational.Knowing your WHY gives you a keen understanding of yourself along with an appreciation for who you are-often for the very first time.
If your WHY is Challenge – then you are about doing things your own way. Everything has to be different and if your significant other appreciates your uniqueness then you will have a fun and exciting relationship. You are spontaneous, spur of the moment and always up for a unique and fun experience. In personal relationships this can be wonderful and exciting at first but can be more challenging as responsibilities come in longer term relationships. Understanding is critical to your partner knowing you and being able to see why you do what you do! They will learn to appreciate your inability to follow a recipe (or not add to it) because they will get different meals all the time – often called surprises! When not understood – you can be very challenging. When understood – you can be a lot of fun!
Challenge people can be a challenge in a traditional work environment. You really don’t make a good employee if it means following the rules and conforming. You don’t like to be on time, don’t want to do things the way everyone else does, and don’t want to follow the rules. If the business values this then it could be a match but often this isn’t the case. A better solution is for you to be an entrepreneur or the leader where you can be the visionary and then build a Team to get things done. You see things the rest of us do not so when you can focus on being the visionary and thinking different (a la Steve Jobs) then amazing things can happen!
Challenge people make fun parents. You make your kids laugh and smile which is such a great quality to have with kids. You will most likely be your children’s friends favorite parent because you relate to them well, are so much fun and different than the other parents. You are ok with dressing differently and making them laugh because that is just what you do! When they have challenges, you help them see things differently and imagine other possibilities which can give them comfort and a different perspective.
Realistically Challenge people do not make great employees. You need to be free and able to do things your own way. You do not want to follow the rules so being put in a place where there are a lot of rules won’t work for you like the Military or Government jobs. You really need to be your own boss and in control so you can do your business the way you want it. You would make a great CEO, Business Owner, Entrepreneur, and Solopreneur. Most important – think different and dream big. Then build a Team around you that can help you accomplish your dream.
