Trailblazer

Being a trailblazer isn’t an easy task, because whoever takes on this particular role tends to be the one, who carries the weight of the world on the shoulders.

Being a trailblazer is about debunking the stereotypes and setting good examples so that those, who come after, can have an aspiring model to look up to and emulate.

What makes it difficult to be a trailblazer is the types of challenges that whoever in this role has to face up to. The challenges are usually invincible barriers, who are deeply-rooted in the social conventions and cultural traditions in the form of thoughts or ideas. Due to The wide appeal of these conventional thoughts and ideas, for a trailblazer to introduce, and subsequently, establish a refreshingly different perspective isn’t a task that can be completed in a short amount of time. A trailblazer is usually ridiculed for his or her tenacity and outside of the box thinking until he or she preserves to a point in time, where his or her new perspective of humanity and of the world in general has amassed a certain level of popularity, support and understanding, it is then that the initial public ridicule will be transformed into public applause and admiration.

Trailblazing is not an easy gig. Until we have personally experienced what is like to be the first to make a mark in an unknown territory, we will never truly understand the profound meanings and significance behind those tears and sweats, shed by the trailblazers from walks of life, while working on their dreams.
