There comes a time in everyone’s life when you make baseless comparisons with all others around you. Quite surprisingly, it goes to the extent that you compare you height, weight, richness and even the color of your skin in an attempt to feel better. The result is always the same. You get disappointed and feel worthless. When you embrace your uniqueness, you work wonders in life as you get to know your true strengths.
Accept your true self regardless of what people think of you
Introspect and pay a close attention to your thoughts, needs and requirements. You may find things that may seem awkward but you cannot deny the fact that they make you unique. Unconscious comparisons may have become a part of your everyday life. However, what others think or say hardly describes you. Do what you want to do and live your life your way.
Love your imperfections
Each individual has strengths and weaknesses. Everyone has faults and it is all right since your faults gives you a unique identity among all. You must work on your weaknesses but that can never be a reason to feel bad about yourself. Your mistakes and failures complete you. Do not be afraid to make mistakes in life as they help you turn into a better individual.
Be strong in the face of adversities
Like all others, you have your own struggles in life but do not forget that you are much stronger than your problems. Look back in your past and think of the time when you faced your problems head on and came out a winner. It proves that you have the strength to carry on no matter what. You need to be strongly determined to take the charge in your own hands. Each one has to face challenges in life but those who do not give up and have full faith in their abilities achieve success.
Get inspired from successful people
If you look around you would find many people who accepted their true selves and made their own identity among millions. Those who do not deny the fact that each individual is unique and your uniqueness gives you an edge over all others find it easy to achieve success in life. There is no better example than Thomas Edison whose teacher told him that he could never really learn anything in life.
After being rejected from two jobs and thousand unsuccessful attempts, Thomas eventually invented a light bulb. Who is not aware of Oprah Winfrey who could just be another host among millions but emerged as a famous TV show host and philanthropist and changed life of many others?
It is effortless to be you
The mere idea that you must put on mask and behave different to get an acceptance from all other is a misconception. On the contrary, it turns you into an out and out boring individual. It is quite easy and effortless to be yourself. You do not really have to observe all others and behave like them. Trust your own gut feeling. It always gives you the best advice, as no one really understands you better.
You can never be like others as you are a unique individual with different needs and requirements. Do not slay your true self in an attempt to be someone you are not. Embrace your uniqueness as it helps you to be more productive and healthy.
