Walt Disney said, “To be successful, you must be unique. You must be so different that if people want what you have, they have to come to you to get it.” His words emphasize the value of the unique difference you bring to life. The reality of your uniqueness is already there in you. It is the beautiful you who is unique in this infinite universe. An unknown author captures the joy, beauty and uniqueness of you in the following. Pause a moment to reflect on your magnificent gift.
You Are Absolutely Unique
Just think what a remarkable, unduplicatable and miraculous thing it is to be you. Of all the people who have come and gone on the earth, since the beginning of time, not one of them is like you.
No one who has ever lived or is to come has had your combination of abilities, talents, appearance, friends, acquaintances, burdens, sorrows and opportunities.
No one’s hair grows exactly the way yours does. No one’s fingerprints are like yours. No one has the same combination of secret inside jokes and family expressions that you know.
The few people who laugh at all the same things you do, don’t sneeze the way you do. No one prays about exactly the same concerns as you do. No one is loved by the same combination of people that love you . . . No one before and no one to come.
Enjoy that very special uniqueness. You do not have to pretend in order to seem more like someone else. You weren’t meant to be like someone else. You do not have to lie to conceal the parts of you that are not like what you see in anyone else.
You were meant to be different. Nowhere, ever, in all of history, will the same things be going on in anyone’s mind, soul and spirit as are going on in yours right now.
If you did not exist, there would be a hole in creation, a gap in history, something missing from the plan for humankind. Treasure your uniqueness as it is a gift given only to you. Enjoy it and share it!
No one can reach out to others in the same way that you can. No one can speak your words. No one can convey your meanings. No one can comfort with your kind of comfort or bring your kind of understanding to another person.
No one can be cheerful and light hearted and joyous in your way. No one can smile your smile. No one else can bring the whole unique impact of you to another human being.
Share your uniqueness. Let it be free to flow out among your family, friends and people you meet in the rush and clutter of living wherever you are. That gift of yourself was given to you to enjoy and share, so always remember . . . YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY UNIQUE!
Your uniqueness is a wondrous gift which separates you in all the beautiful value, joy, love and caring you bring to everything and everyone you touch. Revel in your gift. You are absolutely and beautifully unique. And in your uniqueness, may you expand and broaden its depth by remembering the wisdom of Margaret Mead, “Always remember that you are absolutely unique. Just like everyone else.” May you enjoy and celebrate the rich diversity you and others offer each other in your beautiful uniqueness. The offerings of your uniqueness and that of others will change the world.
Have a beautiful day and a magnificent week!!!
