People seem surprised when that happens. But it does.
Why does it happen?
If you are the nail, you’re the one that stands out from the people who are resigned to accept the way things are.
It doesn’t mean that you’re right. By all stretches of the imagination, the likelihood is that your to be wrong.
After all, so many people have a ready agreed with the way things are. How could they be wrong?
Yet, often they are.
Sometimes you may be too early with your idea. No one is ready to accept it or the logic behind it.
But there is that first time when you see the world as it really is and understand that the Emperor has no clothes.
