The health club I belong to has an elite junior volleyball program.

One thing I noticed is that a majority of the volleyball players are female, high-school age players that all look the same. They are all tall, about 5’8″ to 5’10”, thin, all have shoulder length hair, tied up in pony tails. They all are wearing the same volleyball club uniforms, so they all look very similar, almost identical. It is very difficult with just a casual observation to tell any of the players apart.

To me, the volleyball players reminded me of box of pencils,

Volleyball pencils.

Of course there were also other athletes on the volleyball court. Athletes who were taller, shorter and had different body types (e.g., thicker, thinner, etc.) than the other athletes on the volleyball court. These athletes were the “outliers.”

Malcom Gladwell, in his book, Outliers, explains why “outliers” are some of the most successful people in the world.

So how can you become a successful outlier? Try reprogramming your subconscious.

Reprogramming your subconscious to become an outlier allows you to make a positive impact in your own life helps you co-create the life you truly desire.

I am definitely an outlier. How about you?
