What makes you so special?

Too often we hear that we are just normal people doing normal things. Too often we hear that our impact is limited and indirect at best. Too often we hear that the little things we do won’t ever add up to make a difference.

Too often we don’t give ourselves the credit we deserve…

So, what makes you so special?

You know people that other people do not.

You’ve met and made connections with people who have a particular skill-set and expertise.

You’ve experienced things in life that most haven’t.

The things you’ve experienced are unique to you and the impact they’ve had on you are specific to you.

You’ve played an integral role in shaping the lives of those around you.

The lives of those with whom you spend time are forever and will always be influenced by you.

You have an intrinsic motivation that only you know and only you understand.

You see beauty when beauty’s not easily visible by others.

Your words reach far beyond just those who hear them.

Your actions send a continuous ripple across the globe.

You’ve made people smile & you’ve made people frown.

The world wouldn’t be the same without you.

So, the next time you hear someone say or you think to yourself, ‘what makes you so special,’ think of this list and be confident in your role and know that it is you that makes you special.
