Why You Are Special and Why Does It Matter
Why 'you are special'?
Why and how does it matter?
Things you can say to yourself to feel great and special always.
Why 'you are special'?:
You are special. Just like your fingerprint is unique, you are a unique person with a special purpose. No one is born to do the things you were born to do.
You are special because God made you special.
"You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother's womb. Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous--and how well I know it." (Psalm 139:13-14 NLT)
A great philosopher James Allen wrote in his book 'As a Man Thinketh' ?
"As a being of power, intelligence, and love, and the lord of his own thoughts, man holds key to every situation, and contains within himself that transforming and regenerative agency by which he may make himself what he wills."
Do not compare yourself with others. There is no need to compare yourself with another person. If you look around, there may be many people who excel in your field. You can learn from them, but do not let them intimidate you. Never, ever compare yourself with others whether you feel they are superior to you or inferior to you. Do not let that hinder your genius. Be your best and that is all what matters. When you are at your best, everything you do is a masterpiece. You do not have to prove anything to anybody.
You have the same three-pound brain like everybody else, which is capable of doing wonderful things. There is a story about C.V.Raman, a genius who won the Nobel Prize for Physics: One of his students was once experimenting with an X-ray tube of 1-kilowatt power. The student felt depressed when he came to know that a scientist in England is experimenting on the same problem with a 5-kilowatt X-ray tube. With a smile, Raman suggested his student, "The solution is very simple; use your 10-kilowatt brain on the problem." You too have the 10-kilowatt power brain and you too can use it for your own special purposes. The whole world of opportunity is open to you. Think of all the wonderful things you can do and enjoy.
Why and how does it matter?:
By realizing that you are special, you can make a difference in the world, you can have an impact on your surroundings. The successful accomplishments of your goals and dreams lead to greater contribution to yourself, your family, and the world.
By being your best, you can make a great impact on the society, like Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, or C.V.Raman. You have the unique qualities and exceptional genius. Imagine the impact the world can experience by having hundred Edisons.
Take action. There was a young man who was an artist. He used to get discouraged thinking that, may be there are other good artists who are better than he is. Few of his friends encouraged; few others discouraged him. He went ahead and participated in the competition anyway. When he won the award, a guy commented, "This does not mean that you are the best. There may be other good artists, who did not participate in the contest". May be true, but participation was important. By not participating, you lose your chance to be successful.
By taking action, you bring your unique credentials to the table. You make the world a better place to live. Step out and do something.
"The difference between what we are capable of doing and what we do, can solve most of the problems in this world." ? Mahatma Gandhi.
There is enough for all of us. There is an abundance of good things and abundance is available to you. By keeping in mind that you are special, you will have abundant supply of opportunities and ideas to excel in your chosen endeavor.
Things you can say to yourself to feel great and special always:
Take a piece of paper and write down the following self-affirmations. Keep the paper with you always and read it whenever you can, minimum two times a day. You will experience a difference, because spoken words are so powerful.
You deserve to be successful. You deserve to be great.

Everyday is a Gift, Open and Enjoy It
There is a bottle of perfume sitting on my dresser that I was given when I was ten years old! As you can tell I have pack rat tendencies! For me that pattern started as a young child. I could never bear to throw things away. There was more to it than not wanting to throw things away. I loved the feeling I had when I would receive something new, and would not want to spoil it by using it unless it was for something special. I would want to save it for a special occasion. A new dress would sit in the closet, until a special event to wear it. Perfume would sit on my dresser, not to be used for everyday, but for a special 'something'. This was a pattern in my life for many years.
The story of the three bricklayers has been around for many years. The reason it continues to be told is the messages that the story tells. The following is the story of The Three Bricklayers:
Most of us, at one point or another, take a moment to evaluate our lives and the paths that we have chosen to take. We each do it at different times and with different emphasis. Sometimes people do it around high school or college graduation time, when deciding what career to pursue, how we want to be regarded by society, friends, and family or how to transition ourselves from a student to a grown up.
My Favorite Movies Journal
The movies--what a wonderful way to spend an afternoon! I love going to the movies. When I thought about why I look forward to going to a movie, I realized it was like meditation for me. The only thing that was on my mind was what was in front of me on the screen. I am in the moment when I am at a movie.
Abused as a Child
Child abuse is a much more common event, than is usually expressed in public. I recently attended an event, where people were asked to discuss their darkest secrets. Out of the thirty or so women in the room, nearly two thirds expressed their darkest secret as, being about child abuse and two had had terminations, created by a family member.

To Raise Your Frequency, Just Turn on the Joy!
The feeling response to being filled up with Love from your Spirit is joy. Higher frequency energy-Love-activates a joy response in your emotional body. I like to say that joy is a frequency-but it is more accurate to say that joy is your emotional response to higher frequency. When you are at a certain frequency, feeling the Love from Spirit moving through you to Spirit, the natural feeling you have is joy. And here is something truly empowering to know: when you feel joy, you are at a higher frequency.

Its A Brand New Day
Waking up one day and realizing your world just isn't working for you is the first step into an incredibly exciting new journey. That awakening is to be the first of many. Maybe you've been reading self improvement books and feeling like something is missing. That's a sure sign your life may be changing, especially if you are beginning to question your own spirit.
Safety ? Are You OK?
Safety is an interesting concept. When we think of safety we almost intuitively think of its opposite, danger. Some people say that "our thoughts create our reality." I would differ with that in one important way. I would say our thoughts create our perception of reality or our interpretation of reality. That is not the same thing, but it is at least as important. Byron Katie says "Reality is kinder than our thinking."
What To Do When You Dont Know What To Do
It is often difficult to know exactly what to do. This is especially true when you decide to stop being a creature of habit and circumstance and decide instead to live a life of purpose and meaning. It may sound strange that deciding to live purposefully can leave you without a sense of direction. But it often does. Imagine that you always take the same route to work and then one day, you wake up and decide that you are going to take another road. Ah, but which one? And does it actually go where you want to end up. That's the quandary.
