Chris Brogan posted on Twitter the challenge to give away one secret or one free big idea by the end of the day. My first reaction came from a place of negative thinking. What can I offer you? But I do not live in the negative. The positive side has my permanent dwelling. I have a lot to offer you that is unique to me – and you have a lot to offer me as well.
That may be my great big secret – YOU ARE UNIQUE. People get caught up in doing things step by step according to some other plan instead of focusing in on their own heart and doing the thing that drives passion. The unique way that you look at things will be the exact reason that you are able to succeed in your journey.
Using Your Uniqueness for Success
1. Make a list of all the reasons you are unique. Write down what makes you – you.
2. Determine today where you want to be in one year, in five years and in ten years. These plans are not set in stone but will help you determine your next step.
3. Review your unique qualities and determine how these features can help you get to where you want to be.
4. Set up one step that you can take RIGHT NOW that will start you in the direction of your one year goal. Spend one week focused on that one step before you begin to add new steps. Consistency is the key to greatness.
Maybe this idea is not as great as I think it is. I have just watched so many people struggling to find their place and wondering like I did when the challenge was first presented – what do I have to offer. Recognizing the unique person that you are will do amazing things to guide you to where you want and deserve to be.
