YOUR MANIFEST PROSPERITY MESSAGE:
38. I am unique and only I can do what I do
There are so many talented and gifted people out there who doubt themselves and their ability to be successful so much that they don’t even try. Some are scared of competition or failure; some are scared of success. Some just don’t believe in themselves. We often compare ourselves to others and let that stop us from trying something because someone else out there is already doing something similar. Maybe they have a bigger following, more experience and more success so why bother competing with them, right? Here’s the thing, they are not you. It isn’t always about being better than someone else, it’s about being different. Think of two of your favorite music artists. When they each release a new song you absolutely love, what do you do? Chances are, you buy both, right? How silly would it be to assume that you would only buy one. But not everyone will love both songs. Some people will like one over the other and both artists sell their music to the people who resonate with their music. Imagine if Beyoncé never started making music because Madonna was already creating music and she didn’t want to compete with her. What if you are the future Beyoncé of your field? Many people don’t realize that your ideal customer, client or employer will be happy to pay for what you have to offer even if there is someone else out there already crushing it.
There is only one of you. You are completely unique and absolutely no one else can do what you do the way you do it. You don’t need to be better than anyone else, you just need to be yourself and that is what attracts people to you and your gifts. Your story, your energy, your personality are all things that attract your unique tribe whether that’s customers, clients, or your dream employer. You are relatable to people out there who may not relate with your competition. You would be doing yourself and them a disservice by not pursuing your talents and gifts.
Write who you are worried about competing with in your field of work.
Write down what makes you unique from them.
Write all of the characteristic traits which you are proud of.
Write down all the things you are good at, even if it doesn’t relate in any way to you making money from it. This is what makes you unique and special!
