How many of you have fallen into a trap where you feel like you are not good enough? Your friends, families, and colleagues all seem to have so much more than you. You may even be convinced that there is no way for your little, boring selves to get any better than they are now. But, what if you are wrong about that? What if there is a way for you to rise above the rest and become exceptional? Sounds far-fetched, but it’s entirely possible. Let’s explore how you can start excelling in your life as an individual and reach new heights as part of your community.
What is the meaning of being exceptional?
We can find many meanings for this word. Yet, non of them might resonate with you. Thing is, you might, and most likely, you do have a different perception of being exceptional than me or others. This is completely normal. The general sense of this word, according to dictionaries, is something that is rare, unique, and better than average. But honestly who can decide about that? Who can tell you what is average and what is exceptional?
Truly, who can decide what is exceptional and what is not? Who gives anyone that kind of power to judge other people? Should you or should you not act to someone else schemes or rules? Don’t get this part wrong. I’m not encouraging you to start being rude, stealing, abusing others or killing, ok? I am encouraging you to think about the way you are dressing up, talking and act when in the group. Are you trying to fit in? Hiding your true self, feeling afraid or ashamed of who you truly are?
It is true that as humans, we are incredibly social creatures. We need human connection more than anything else in the world. This might lead to some situations that force you to do something you do not want or give others an advantage over you. And to be fair, many times you would love to be unique but you might be afraid that you will not be accepted by others. But why? Can’t you say no? Is it really so hard to say no and be your unique self? Why is so hard to understand that you are allowed to do so and that this is ok?
Why you might want to be exceptional?
While you often might feel that you are not good enough, the truth is that there is an entire world out there that has never met you. You can change all of that by simply getting out there and meeting people. It may sound simple, but it can be hard to find the right people. Always remember that the friends you have now are the ones that you chose, so be sure to choose wisely. As you get out there, you will likely meet a diversity of people, and that’s okay.
Remember also that, by being exceptional you might, not even knowing that, touch someone’s soul. Make someone stop and think about their own lives and the choices they made. You will also make an example for others to want to be exceptional. Your being exceptional can influence others and make them want to improve their lives. Make them want to join this journey you are on and follow their own path to excellence.
However, the biggest benefit of being exceptional is… What do you think? Please, share your thoughts in the comment section. Now, would you agree that the most important is, that you are true to yourself? That you follow your heart and your dreams. That, you choose for yourself what path you want to follow and what you want to do in and with your life. Isn’t this amazing, that you can make your own choices and follow your dreams?
How can you become exceptional?
The first step to becoming exceptional is to focus on the task at hand. Keep in mind the circumstances of where you are in your life and what you are trying to achieve. Spend some time thinking about what your ideal life looks like, and then ask yourself if you are currently living that life. Are you using your skills to their fullest extent? If you are not, you can change that. Take some time each day to think about what you are doing in your life and what you could be doing instead or how can you improve what you are doing. There are infinite ways to excel.
The road to greatness is rarely a smooth one. You will make mistakes, and that’s okay. Often, the best way to improve is to recognize and correct them along the way. When you wait until everything is perfect to start doing something, you are setting yourself up for a lifetime of unhappiness. If you are waiting for the world to be perfect before you start your journey, you probably won’t start at all. It’s okay to make mistakes, but the key is to learn from them. You may want to create a “mistakes” notebook where you can write down your mistakes, and then make a plan on how you will correct them.
Most importantly, thou, remember that this is not a one-time deal, that this is a lifestyle. And no matter how good you are in something you will always be looking for ways to improve yourself. However, considering all this, in fairness, you might be an exceptional individual already. By simply being yourself. Not following the masses, trends and manias. By being true to yourself and following your heart. Of course, you will always be working on improving yourself. But you are simply improving your excellence, which you already are?
Shortly we discover the meaning of being exceptional, reasons to be an excellent individual and ways how can you do this. There is no better time than now to start making your mark on the world. There are so many ways for you to excel, and the only thing that stands in your way is yourself. You are capable of so much more than you may realize. There is no need to settle for less than you deserve. You can be exceptional, and there is no better time than now.
