If they try to make you feel different, thanks them.
Its mean you are too much for them.
We all grown up feeling that we are different. We was scared to don’t be accepted, to don’t be enough like others. Some of us are still scared and we all feel it come back to us at some points. Personally it’s take me years to overcome that feeling. Today I understand that what make me different is also what make me unique and is exactly what will make me stand out.
We are all wrong to try to be like others we should work for amplified our difference.
What makes you the person you are?
What makes you different from others?
Accept this difference, work with it not against it. It’s this part of you that will bring you to the top.
I know, it’s not always easy to accept ourselves 100% as we are but we have to find a way to do it. Simply because we deserve to become a better version of ourselves. Sometimes it can be scary, we have the fear of not being accepted, of being seen as a stranger. It takes courage to accept yourself and proudly wear our difference.
Since I understood the meaning of uniqueness, I am happy to be different. Not to think like the majority and not to suit everyone. That’s a sign that I am aligned with my true self. I try to surround myself of people who also stand out, who don’t fit in the box, who have a unique personality that match with mine. Most of them have a particular story and have it hard to find their place in this world, but once they finally find it, they create pure magic.
We are all born with attributes that make us unique, with the time we learn to develop ourselves and certain parts of ourselves develop further. Some of us are more artistic than others and some more mathematical or even more athletic, the possibilities are endless. We have to find our own formula and welcome it as a gift. We have to accept our difference and make it our brand, which is often what gives us a message to share with the rest of the world.
Let me explain myself, if what makes you unique is your difficult journey embrace it, don’t reject it, it took you where you are right now, let go of the things that hold you back but create your personality with your experience.
If what makes you unique is your discipline and you were a great athlete but following an injury your career is over, you still have your discipline and you can always use it to become a great businessman and inspire others. Look inside of you, find which quality can make you stand out from the crowd? Use all what you have in yourself, all the shades of your personality. Don’t listen to criticism don’t listen to people who tell you that you should do it like someone else. Everyone has a story but no one has the same story as you, so no one can see trough your eyes. Listen to yourself and go where you think is best for you. Your parents, your friends they all think they know what is good for you but you are the only person who truly know it. They have not lived what you have been through, they do not feel what you are feeling and above all they want your security so they will avoid you to do anything that could put you in physical, financial or emotional danger. Without risk there is no great success. Get out of your comfort zone, travel takes financial risk, quit the job that doesn’t make you happy, invest all your savings in a program that will bring you higher. If you believe you can do it’s because you actually can do it! Don’t listen to anyone other than your instincts. Do not let yourself be guided by fear but faith. You will see an incredible amount of door open in front of you.
Be proud of who you are, embody it, work with it and please don’t be shy to express it!
You are perfect just the way you are.
Your difference is your strength and your biggest odds to be seen.
