Dare To Be Unique, There’s Nobody Like You!

It's important to be you and a unique you at that!There’s no need for you to impersonate anyone; they already exist. Do you want to be like your friend or colleague? WHY? It’s important for you to be unique! Even identical twins (or triplets etc.) are unique in their own particular way. You are not a direct copy of anyone. You are YOU. If there were meant to be more than one of you, it would create havoc in the world. Not that you’re a bad person, but 2 people with the same finger prints could be chaotic for the security services for one. Then the 2 people would react and live their lives in exactly the same way. Imagine how annoying that could be!

There are no clones thankfully, so, if you want to be something, then it’s YOU that needs to be. You can’t imitate someone else, unless of course that is your job. If you’re an entertainer who impersonates others for money, then you need to imitate others, but seriously you still need to have your own unique personality and self-image to make it in the entertainment industry too.

Be Unique, But Still Learn From others.

Observe others, learn from them, but don’t try to be like them. Learn skills from them, but implement those skills into your own life and move forward in your own way. Because you’re traveling your own road, you can’t really follow the footsteps of someone exactly, nor can someone else travel your road. Each of us have our own road to travel.

So, why don’t we all have the same fingerprints, ears, noses etc.? It would be no fun that way. We need to be individuals. Given the undisputed fact that everyone is different, why be like somebody else?

Why is there such a demand to change your looks or your body with plastic surgery?

Why not be happy the way you are?

I’m not talking about appearance alone, but talents too.

Be unique. We all have our own unique character. When you crave for talents you don’t have, you’re neglecting the talents you already have. You have been gifted with your own unique talents. Instead of being counterproductive by trying to copy someone else, develop the talents you already have. If you’re not sure what talents you have, ask your friends what they think you’re good at. You will be surprised at what you find out!

There is no coincidence here. Everything exists for a reason. You’re not talented by accident! Neither is it an oversight that you don’t have talents you really want to have.

Everybody is gifted with his or her own unique talents. Make no mistake about it! Talents aren’t only about things like singing, acting, dancing, painting, writing or excellence in sports. You have your own unique talent, which could be spontaneity, enthusiasm, a connection with animals, caring for the disabled, generosity, being a good teacher or public speaker, being a great community member or being a good problem solver. It may even be your capacity to love, your natural joy, your brilliance, intelligence, radiating beauty, having a funny way of expressing yourself, making others laugh, kindness, tenderness, and many more. The list of possible talents is potentially very long!

Be Unique: Be YOU!

be unique and know your talents make you uniqueWhatever goes on, wherever and whenever, what really is for you to be you? Being you is knowing what your unique talents are. Unique, you say? Others are spontaneous too! A lot of people are generous and friendly. Your uniqueness lies in the combination of your talents. Find out what your most prominent talents are and how you can put them all together. The alignment and synergy of your key talents portrays the beauty of your uniqueness.

You are at your best being yourself! It’s a waste of your valuable time trying to be like someone else. I hope you understand that the world needs you exactly as you are! Dare to be yourself! The more you dare to be yourself, the more freedom you will feel. The more freedom you feel, the more you will dare. Daring and freedom work together to re-create your unique self in the constantly expanding celebration of Life. Your “be unique” life.

  • i have friends who are twins and they really are so different. they are identical and people who do not know them cannot even tell them apart, but when you know them for a while you can see the differences. now they don’t even look similar to me, they certainly have individual personalities. celebrate your uniqueness, yes!

    enjoy the journey!

  • For the first time in history we are in a position to easily discover and learn new talents. It would be a shame to waste that opportunity.

    When I was at high school i knew little about most professions, apart from those I’d had direct contact with. At my all girls school Most of us, who planned on higher education, were advised to become a librarian, nurse, or teacher.

    The internet has opened up the world. We can find out about any subject we have interest in. People don’t need to stay in the same profession or trade. We can learn online or through distance learning, part or full time.

    We also have wonderful posts like this encouraging us to encourage us.

  • Absolutely Barrie being ourselves and daring to be unique is key to attracting others to you! For me there is no one else I would rather be 🙂 Great post!

  • Every business owner has their own unique truth. They have a unique point of view and understanding of the world that unites their genius and mission in a way that has potential for incredible profit. And most importantly, the clients they serve are looking for the exact thing only they can provide.

  • Hi Barrie ,
    it is true we all are unique and should not compare ourselves to others.
    Knowing about our uniqueness and being authentic makes it possible to make a difference. Would it not be boring if we all would do a similar thing ? Everyone who is aware of this will find his own way to stand out.
    Thank you
    Nice post

  • Hi Barrie,
    It’s never been a better time to be ourselves. We don’t have to follow any path others have taken. We can now create our own. It may be a challenge to discover our “uniqueness” by I think if you notice a “theme” that has appeared throughout your life – that’s something to pay attention to …

  • Hi Barrie,
    Life is about joy and what better way that expresses yourself, your actual unique self and do what you love and what you are brought to do in this world. We all have a purpose, and we all are better off follow and employ what’s coming from within yourself.
    Thank you for sharing!

  • Hi Barrie

    Love this post and you are so on point about the fact that we are unique. This gives us the opportunity to make a difference. I too wonder why people want to be like others when there is so much beauty in being you. It is strange that our world promotes following the crowd and stifles on being different but when we are unique, we give OPPORTUNITIES for others to be aware of their uniqueness.

    Thanks for sharing. Take care

    • You’re right Ikechi about the way we are encouraged to follow the crowd. I think if the governments promoted more uniqeness, they would not be so much in control. I wonder if it’s on purpose? Time for a debate?

  • Hi Barrie,

    You are spot on. we have to appreciate who we are. I know many women who are changing their bodies with plastic surgery and botox. I can’t even get my hair cut without someone telling me that they know someone who can make me look younger. Ha! I am me and every line on my face tells a story. People are all unique and we have to appreciate ourselves and others.

    With so many choices we have today, if we only accept our uniqueness and share it, we will stand out in the crowd. Having self-acceptance is a great start. Never follow the crowd. There is so much to learn and thats wonderful, but we must celebrate our uniqueness.

  • Hi Barrie,
    Everyone has there own unique talents.
    No two people are exactly the same.
    No two businesses are exactly the same
    Like the song says You be you and Ill be me.
    Good article.

  • this is so spot on. Everybody should strive to embrace their individuality.
