For many years I struggled with all the things I am NOT. I would see people who are naturally extroverted, and seemed to have no problem talking to anyone, and I would think “man, if I was like that, it would be so much easier for me to build my business.” I would look at people who came from well-to-do families and think ‘If I just had that background, or their money, or their contacts…” I can go on, but I think you probably get the point. It is so easy to look at ourselves and see all the things we wish were different, or that we don’t like.
You see, you are unique. You have your own set of skills, talents, gifts, affinities, experiences, etc. Heck…you’ve got your own specific DNA. You are a specially created individual. You have everything you need to be the best “you”. You simply have to develop what you’ve been blessed with. When I finally started to believe this, it changed everything for me. The point is this…I am not normal….and neither are you! There is no normal when it comes to people. There are a lot of people trying to appear normal. What a colossal waste of time. You don’t want to be normal.
