    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
    Erika

    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.

    -Donna
