If You Don't Think That You Are Special - Read This!

Updated: Jul 14, 2021

I often hear from people that they’re nothing special, just 'normal' or don’t have any cool talents. I hear them playing themselves down, and it makes me sad that they actually hold these beliefs about themselves.

But the truth is that in one way or the other we are all special. Have you ever thought about the fact that there is only one version of you out there? You are quite literally the only person on this planet who looks like you, has the same voice as you and thinks like you. Even if you’re a twin / triplet, there will still be little differences in your bodies and probably even bigger ones in your character.

If you look at high-end brands such as Rolex, Dior, Ferrari and so forth you see that the more limited a product they produce is, the more value it holds. Let's take Ferrari for example.. In 1962, a Ferrari model called 250 GTO was launched. Only 39 models were every made and in 2018 one of them was sold for a solid 48.4 million dollars. But hold on… there is not 39 versions of you is there? Let’s multiply 48.4 x 39. That leaves us with 1,887,600,000. While we will never be able to put any monetary value on our own worth, it shows how special something unique is. I want you to realise that you are a limited edition. You are worth so much more than you give yourself credit for.

If that doesn’t convince you that you are special, let me continue. I personally believe in the universe, but if you’re religious of any kind then you may refer to this as God, Allah or Buddha, depending on your religion. For the purpose of this article, let‘s call it a higher power.

That higher power created all the beauty that we have in this universe. Things such as oceans, stars, flowers, mountains, clouds, beaches, the list goes on. Think of your favourite thing about nature and then think about the fact that that same higher power wanted you to be here too. You didn’t come on this planet by coincidence. YOU, personally, were meant to be here and someone or something thought that you must be added to all this beauty already existing. Why? Because you fit right in.

I hope you now realise that even if you are not a superstar, astronaut or breakthrough scientist you are still special. We don’t have to be in newspapers or have billions to be extraordinary because simply by being here, caring for your friends & family and doing your own very best you can every day you are a super human.
