Why ‘You Are Special’ and Why Does It Matter
Why ‘you are special’?
Why and how does it matter?
Things you can say to yourself to feel great and special always.
Why ‘you are special’? :
You are special. Just like your fingerprint is unique, you are a unique person with a special purpose. No one is born to do the things you were born to do.
You are special because God made you special.
“You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb. Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous–and how well I know it.” (Psalm 139:13-14 NLT)
A great philosopher James Allen wrote in his book ‘As a Man Thinketh’ –
“As a being of power, intelligence, and love, and the lord of his own thoughts, man holds key to every situation, and contains within himself that transforming and regenerative agency by which he may make himself what he wills.”
Do not compare yourself with others. There is no need to compare yourself with another person. If you look around, there may be many people who excel in your field. You can learn from them, but do not let them intimidate you. Never, ever compare yourself with others whether you feel they are superior to you or inferior to you. Do not let that hinder your genius. Be your best and that is all what matters. When you are at your best, everything you do is a masterpiece. You do not have to prove anything to anybody.
You have the same three-pound brain like everybody else, which is capable of doing wonderful things. There is a story about C.V.Raman, a genius who won the Nobel Prize for Physics: One of his students was once experimenting with an X-ray tube of 1-kilowatt power. The student felt depressed when he came to know that a scientist in England is experimenting on the same problem with a 5-kilowatt X-ray tube. With a smile, Raman suggested his student, “The solution is very simple; use your 10-kilowatt brain on the problem.” You too have the 10-kilowatt power brain and you too can use it for your own special purposes. The whole world of opportunity is open to you. Think of all the wonderful things you can do and enjoy.
Why and how does it matter? :
By realizing that you are special, you can make a difference in the world, you can have an impact on your surroundings. The successful accomplishments of your goals and dreams lead to greater contribution to yourself, your family, and the world.
By being your best, you can make a great impact on the society, like Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, or C.V.Raman. You have the unique qualities and exceptional genius. Imagine the impact the world can experience by having hundred Edisons.
Take action. There was a young man who was an artist. He used to get discouraged thinking that, may be there are other good artists who are better than he is. Few of his friends encouraged; few others discouraged him. He went ahead and participated in the competition anyway. When he won the award, a guy commented, “This does not mean that you are the best. There may be other good artists, who did not participate in the contest”. May be true, but participation was important. By not participating, you lose your chance to be successful.
By taking action, you bring your unique credentials to the table. You make the world a better place to live. Step out and do something.
“The difference between what we are capable of doing and what we do, can solve most of the problems in this world.” – Mahatma Gandhi.
