the Perfection Motivational Poster

himym_perfection_season4

SO if you have been around here long or watched How I Met Your Mother for any length of time then you are probably familiar with the Awesomeness Poster and the legendary poster collection in Barney’s office. Despite the Awesomeness poster being the most famous, I have always thought the coolest was the Perfection poster. The poster was there in Season 1 & 2, gone from the walls in Season 3 and back but in a different spot in Season 4! There has never been a 100%  positive id on the catch phrase but I’m fairly certain it says:

It is not good enough to win, everyone else should lose

It’s either everybody or everyone. More to the point though, it’s not exact but I’m building my own ultimate motivational poster collection like Barney Stinson’s and thought that, like the awesomeness poster, it was time to build the Perfection Poster…so, now available from the be awesome instead store is the perfection motivational poster. Try to control yourselves.

Motivational Posters – Conformity Penguins

”Be

Greetings fellow How I Met Your Mother fans and those who love awesome motivational posters. It’s no secret that most of my visitors come here for information on Barney Stinson’s Awesomeness Poster. Many of you have also requested some of the other Motivational Posters from Barney’s office. I have also been working on several of the other posters (more coming soon, I promise!), however until then let’s talk about the Conformity Motivational Poster. In “Life Among the Gorillas” not only do we see the poster but we without a doubt know what it says because Marshall reads it out loud. It reads “Conformity, It’s the one who is different that gets left out in the cold.”

The original poster shows a group of penguins. However, I originally felt that a more accurate poster would only have 1 penguin (because it’s alone…try and keep up), well that and I couldn’t find the original stock. So for your enjoyment, I have made up a desktop version of the poster that can be downloaded from here. It is 1680 x 1260 and in jpg format. The photo in the poster is from Eli Duke (flickr page and homepage). Thanks Eli, hope it meets your approval! Download here.

In more recent days, the stock photo has actually been found by 3 different beawesomeinstead.com readers. Thanks all of you! Sorry, I dropped the ball but it’s cool I can count on you.  Now the original conformity poster is available in a HQ poster size in the Be Awesome Instead store. I’ve discontinued the fan version but I’m leaving it down there as a keepsake…(feel free to say awww….)
