How do you stand out?

Energetically this is a very unique time for our world. We are going through a lot of turmoil and change and it is affecting all of us. Our planet and species is evolving faster than ever before, and our level of consciousness is rising to cope with the changes. And as much as we are all very similar, each and every one of is having a truly unique experience. We think we know who others are, yet we really have no idea what it’s like to walk in each other’s shoes, especially in these turbulent times.

Try this next time you’re at work, walking in the mall, at the grocery store … 

Look at others and ask yourself …
“I wonder who they really are?”
“I wonder what’s going on for them?”
“I wonder what it’s like to be them?”
“I wonder what keeps them up at night?”
“I wonder what makes them laugh?”

The questions are not there to be answered, just to ponder and realize that we are all unique.

Drop judgment and be interested. Most people would rather crawl under a rock than be someone who stands out.  But, don’t be like everyone else.  Be different!

1. Acknowledge YOUR uniqueness!
Seriously, you don’t want to be like anyone else. Your body is different. Your brain is different. Your life experiences are different. Wow!!! Isn’t that amazing. Honor and respect who you are, quirks and all. 

“Don’t try so hard to FIT IN when you were BORN to stand out!”

2. Don’t try to be like everyone else!
Seriously, I know in our society, it is often uncomfortable to be different. Let go of the peanut gallery who wants you to be like them. You are NOT like everyone else in so many ways. Go over your life and feel gratitude for all the unique experiences you have had … even if they felt good or not. Don’t judge. And love yourself just a little bit more.

“Don’t try so hard to FIT IN when you were BORN to stand out!”

3. Find love and acceptance for others!
Seriously, most people really only want love and acceptance. They are unique too, just like you, and they too are afraid to stand out.  But why fight it! Be yourself, and let others do the same!

Notice when you’re wanting to be like everyone else and instead, focus on what makes you feel FABULOUS and find more of that in your life.  

Every day, find one thing to tell yourself that has you feel YOU WERE BORN TO STAND OUT!!!

If this makes you feel uncomfortable … GOOD.  It means you are GROWING!!!

Here’s something I do … I know it’s not for everyone but it sure makes me stand out. When I order coffee, a meal or make a reservation and the server asks my name, I use a completely different one!  I say ROCK STAR!

Now what are you waiting for?  

Time is ticking … you ROCK STAR!!!
