November 5, 2003.

“The hardest struggle of all is to be something different from what the average man is.”
Charles M. Schwab

Isn’t it pretty wild to imagine that there are no two people exactly alike? That’s right, in a world populated with billions of people, each and every one of us are distinctly different from anyone else on the planet. And it is these differences that shape the lives we get to live; making us who we are and even more importantly, what we can become.

Yet in spite of our unique God given abilities and talents, far too many of us insist on just blending in with everyone else. Even though there are no two people alike anywhere on earth, many folks believe that breaking away from the rest of the crowd is nothing short of impossible. Rather than celebrating their own uniqueness and individuality, they often try to just mingle in with everyone else. Then instead of striving to do their very best every day, they settle for just plain average.

“Be daring, be different, be impractical; be anything that will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against the play-it-safers, the creatures of the commonplace, the slaves of the ordinary.”
Cecil Beaton

Hey, let’s face it; being average is not what you were put on earth to be. Not at all. While others around you may settle for an ordinary, mundane, run of the mill existence, you owe it to yourself and to your loved ones to shoot for something better. In fact, you should shoot for a whole lot better. You need to be the very best you can be and that’s going require that you be who you were born to be — different from everyone else.

Being different can open doors that once were closed and open your eyes to abundant opportunity where obstacles and impediments once blocked the way. But being different is not without danger; in fact, it can be downright risky. Being different means breaking away from the rest of the pack and that is going to rock a few boats. There will always be plenty of people traveling on the road to nowhere who are more than willing to take you along for the ride.

By boldly blazing your own trail, clearing your own individual path, it’s a sure bet that you’re going upset a few apple carts along the way. But if you’re ever going to break out from the ordinary and make your mark in history, you’re going to have to roll the dice and be daring, be courageous and yes, be different as well.

“Often the difference between a successful person and a failure is not one has better abilities or ideas, but the courage that one has to bet on one's ideas, to take a calculated risk — and to act.”
Maxwell Maltz

Ralph Waldo Emerson once said that “we boil at different degrees.” In other words, it’s left completely up to us to find out what gets our motors running and then find a way to passionately pursue that special something with all of our heart. As soon as you identify your one true calling, your unique niche that in life, you must immediately begin chasing that dream with all of your might. In all likelihood, that will require a lot more than the average effort you’ve offered up in the past.

Are you willing to give more than you have ever given to get where you have always dreamed of going? Now don’t just say you are if you are not willing to back up your words with ACTION! And right now, not whenever you get around to it. Come on, the only way for your life to get better is for you to get better right this very minute. If you truly want a different life with different results, doesn’t it make sense that you are going to have to do things differently from this point forward?

“If you do things well, do them better. Be daring, be first, be different, be just.”
Anita Roddick

There’s no doubt about it; being different isn’t easy or trouble free. By bravely charging full steam ahead into the unknown and leaving the familiar far behind in your quest to find that elusive pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, you are sure to feel a bit uneasy. After all, you’re doing things differently than you’ve ever done them before and you’re doing them in new surroundings as well. But by doing things differently, you can redefine your destiny on earth while rediscovering that winning spirit within.

Aren’t you ready to conceive more, believe more and achieve more? You can, but it’s going to take a different approach. Wouldn’t you prefer to live life on your own terms, making the most of each and every moment? You can do this as well, but it’s going to require a different attitude. And are you ready to seize the day and seize control of your life’s direction? You bet you are; in fact, you were born ready! All it takes is a different outlook on life.

When you’re ready to step away from the ordinary and set your sights on the truly extraordinary, you’ll be astonished at what a difference a little difference makes.

The Bottom Line: Don’t be afraid to be different. Instead, dare to be different today!
