Success, gaga and big shoes

Small things, Big things

I've been thinking about Lady Gaga lately. She pops up and out everywhere I look. For instance Mayi Carles from Heartmade talked about Lady Gaga. First of all, Mayi herself is quite a character. And she's proud to be a character. Second of all the thing about Lady Gaga is... Well, she's brilliant. The brand is full of win. It smells of success.

The reason why I've been thinking about all this is I'm a modest person. Way too modest. Annoyingly modest. Stupidly modest. Got the point? I cannot do that. I'm not capable of being a ladygaga or even a mayicarles.

That's what's wrong with me. I'm too damn nice and rather shy. I cannot go to extremes. I don't like to annoy. I don't like to step on anyone's toes. I'd need bigger shoes to do that.

That's my problem. To be successful in anything you must not be afraid to annoy or even make someone hate you. There's nothing wrong with it. This tweet is circling around. It goes something like: If nobody hates you, you are doing something wrong. There's a point there.

Maybe I don't need to be a ladygaga. Being a little bit of mayicarles might be enough. But how to hell do I get there, if I'm so stupidly modest?
