One should be not only positive, or different, but also persistent. In the ten incarnations of Lord Vishnu, the first one is a fish, which indicates that one should be different in life. The second incarnation is that of a tortoise, which indicates that one should be different but also learn to withdraw when the need arises. The third one is a boar which indicates persistence.

The key to a successful life is to be positively different and persistent and know when to withdraw.
