To grow, you must first break away from tradition
To become #1 in whatever you do, you must first break the bounds of tradition. If you do whatever everyone else does in your field you will become like everyone else in your field.
You must shock the system first and break away from what is the tradition in your field and what is considered normal. It will not be easy. You will make enemies as most do not want the status quo to change.
But progress depends on this. Without breaking away from what is normal and what is the tradition, evolution will not happen.
In whatever I do, I try to become #1 by changing the way the work is done, by becoming unique and innovative. This is one reason behind my success. I always find a better way of doing things that has not been done before. This makes the system uncomfortable but progress and change is always uncomfortable at the start. But it is for better as it improves the system.
