“Competition attempts to be like. Creativeness attempts to be unlike.” -U. S Anderson I don’t know about you, but I choose to be unlike anyone out there. We were each put on this earth with a unique purpose. In the entire world there is no one like you. Stop trying to be what you think others want you to be. Let’s stop being ridiculous, and embrace the fact that we are each essential in our own way. You have been living in the trap of competition for long enough. Why fight to have the same as everyone else when you can strive to obtain something different? Let go of the idea that the value system of the group is the same as your own. What do you value? What do have you to contribute that is good, and true, and unique?
Just as a painter puts paint to canvas with only his/her imagination and creativity guiding his vision, so too should we lead our individual lives. Paint the life you envision suiting your wants, and needs, not the life you see suiting others. It is only when we see value in our individual existence that we can look at life with creativity and wonder. We will take risks and explore every desire, every question, and every ambition that rises from within our minds. We will trust our intuition and resourcefulness, and know that every move we make manifested because we saw fit to make it so.
Appreciate your voice. It is the reason for your existence. All of us were put on this earth because we each serve an essential purpose. Regardless of our profession, religion, gender, sexuality, or economic status, we are each powerful in our own unique way. Gifted with a voice to impart our thoughts, ideas, and dreams to impact change, there are no limits to the power we carry within us. Share your voice with the world. Impart upon us your innate wisdom and divinity. What you have the capacity to contribute should not be kept hidden or locked away. Have faith that what you came here to do is something unique unto you. This voice is yours to use everyday. How you choose to use it is solely up to you.
In a world full of comparison, competition, envy, and self-doubt it comes as no surprise that so many of us feel limited in our capacity to use our voice to reach new heights. We lock away what we fear might not be understood by the masses. We keep ourselves small and allow for our voices to become only a whisper among the crowd. When we lock away these voices, we lock away our own capacity to attain self-actualization. We take on the voices of others and trade our authenticity for a life dictated by the judgments and ideas of others. This is not a life. This is the imprisonment of a soul.
“You have been criticizing yourself for years and it hasn’t worked. Try approving of yourself and see what happens.”
I acknowledge my own self-worth; my confidence is soaring. I challenge all of you to believe these words and really step into them today.
All too often we begin our day with self-sabotaging thoughts that tend to keep us small. We bring ourselves down because somewhere, somehow we have been convinced to believe we are not enough. STOP CRITICIZING YOURSELF!
While no one person is the same, we are all yearning to be accepted. When we accept our authenticity and greatness we leave little to no room for competition. We stop making comparisons, and live fully without fear or doubt of exposing our true selves. Thoughts of not being, doing, or having what others have lose their power and we slowly begin to take pride in what we ourselves can contribute to this world. There is purpose in our individual existence. Stop fighting so hard to fit in when your purpose is to stand out. No one person is more or less than the other. Believe this each and every day and watch as the circumstances of your life begin to change.
Look at yourself in the mirror today. Accept yourself as you are, and love that person with all your heart. You are more than enough!
“Let today be the day you love yourself enough to no longer just dream of a better life; let it be the day you act upon it.” Steve Maraboli

“Magic is a sudden opening of the mind to the wonder of existence. It is a sense that there is much more to life than we usually recognize; that we do not have to be confined by the limited views that our family, our society, or our own habitual thoughts impose on us; that life contains many dimensions, depths, textures, and meanings extending far beyond our familiar beliefs and concepts.” ~ John Welwood
