"Since everybody is an individual, nobody can be you. You are unique. No one can tell you how to use your time. It is yours. Your life is your own. You mold it. You make it."
Standing out from the rest of the crowd can seem a bit daunting at times. In fact, it can be a downright intimidating. After all, the world is filled with all sorts of exceptionally creative people. And, as luck would have it; many of these top performers want the same things you do; that's right, THE EXACT SAME THINGS for crying out loud. That means you've got to compete with these winners if you're going to get where you've dreamed of going.
Making matters a little tougher, sometimes the playing field isn't all that level. Some of the very same folks you're going head to head with have some built in advantages over you. Like it or not, some are smarter, some more experienced and some much better connected.
Good grief, how can you possibly compete when so many have so much more going for them? How can you stand out when there are so many outstanding people out there? What kind of chances can you possibly have going against these super-talented people?
To tell you the truth, I like your chances. In fact, I like them a lot.
"When you discover your mission, you will feel its demand. It will fill you with enthusiasm and a burning desire to get to work on it."
W. Clement Stone
Regardless of the varied talents or gifts others may have or hold, you've got something they definitely don't have. None of them, not even one of them, have the exact same abilities you possess. Think about that for a moment. There's not one single person anywhere who can remotely replicate the incomparable skill set you bring to the table.
As hard as it may be for you to believe, you have abilities the very best can only wish they had. That's right; you hold special powers within that the competition would give almost anything to possess. You have been blessed with more God given talents and abilities than you'll ever need. More than you'll ever be able to use. And these distinctively unique talents make you who you are, a special, truly one-of-a-kind gift to the world.
There's nobody on earth can ever out-you you.
"Every individual matters. Every individual has a role to play. Every individual makes a difference."
If you have so much going for you, what could possibly be holding you back? Is it the competition? Well, yes and no. Yes, you do have competition and no, it's not the outside competition that stands in your way. More often than not, the biggest competition you'll ever face comes from within. That's right; the biggest obstacle you'll ever face, the toughest competition you'll ever encounter is... YOU. No question about it.
Instead of trying to compete with others, winners have discovered that they only compete with themselves. So they strive to bring out their very best each and every day. As a result, they run circles around the rest of the pack. They stand out because they have the courage to stand up and take a stand. They are enthusiastic about their lives, what they are doing and where they are going. These winners are able to generate this unlimited enthusiasm for living because they are passionately pursuing their dreams.
Are you listening?
"It is our privilege and our adventure to discover our own special light."
So how do you go about competing with all of the other talented people out there in the real world? That's easy - you don't. You need to forget about what everyone else is doing because what they're doing doesn't really matter. The only thing that counts, the only thing that matters at all is what you're doing right now. Instead of worrying about competing with others, you just need to listen to your heart. And then passionately follow your dreams with everything you've got.
Never forget, even for a moment, that you were put here for a reason. It is your destiny, your divine mission on earth, to uncover your unique niche and then fashion a lifetime of achievement all around it. You have everything you need, right here and right now, to sculpt your life to your exacting specifications. Yes, you do. It's time for you to stand up and start standing out by making your dreams come true, each and every one.
There's nothing you cannot accomplish when you throw your entire heart and soul into the venture. There's nothing you cannot achieve when you consistently give life everything you've got. When you're willing to stand up and give life your very best shot, with absolutely nothing held back, there's nothing you cannot do.
The Bottom Line: Stand up on the inside and you'll stand out on the outside.
