Do you want to stand out and make a difference in the world? Are you tired of feeling less successful than those around you? Do you want to be somebody?
If so, the first thing you’ll need to do is stop being like everybody else and start focusing on what makes you, you. If you try to be like everybody, you’ll end up being nobody.
We are all unique; each and every one of us has a history that is uniquely different from everyone else. None of us have the exact same past. The combination of things you’ve experienced, people you’ve met, choices you’ve made, and tough situations you’ve been through are one hundred percent unique to you.
Your history — your past experiences, successes, and mistakes — make you uniquely capable of handling specific situations and solving specific problems in the world.
You are so unique in fact, that the only path in life for you to take is your path.
By doing what everyone else is doing, by following the crowd or choosing to follow the path of someone else, you’re not going to change the world; you’re not going to make a difference; and you’re not going to be happy.
Step out of that box that you, your family, your friends, and society have created around your life. You’re a powerful human being, with incredible abilities and superior skills. Why are you letting those go to waste? You are your own master. You are your own God. When it comes to living your life, nobody else even comes close to competing.
Everything you need to be, you are. You don’t have to change or try to be something or someone different. Life provides you with all that is needed to succeed and make a difference. Anything you don’t already have will be provided along the way. All you have to do is step out of the way, stop trying to follow the goals and dreams of someone else, and take the initiative to be yourself.
Stop trying so hard and just be.
Follow your heart and intuition and they will guide you. If it feels like they’re guiding you towards mistakes, then those mistakes are probably vital to your growth and progress. The right path in life isn’t always obvious or easy.
When life throws you lemons, make lemonade. When life throws you a truck-load of lemons, start a lemonade business. But please, don’t give up and let those delicious lemons rot away!
Embrace yourself. Right now. It’s OK, no one is watching. Close your eyes and try it.
Wrap your arms around yourself and give yourself a big hug.
That person loves you more than anyone else ever could. That person will be there with you forever, even on your death bed. Such dedication deserves a little appreciation and love in return, don’t you think?
There are so many people in the world right now who would benefit from what you’ve learned in life. You have the ability to make a permanent impact on their life. These people need you to stop ignoring yourself.
Allow yourself to be yourself. Find the courage to be yourself. Learn to love and take care of yourself before anyone else. Let your unique beauty shine through and touch the hearts and souls of those around you. Genuinely care. Be compassionate and respectful to all life.
Do this and I can promise that you will not only make a difference in your world, but also in the world of those around you.
