Everyone knows that everyone is unique, but what do they mean when they tell you to be unique? Why do you need to be unique since you’re different from everyone else already?
The differences lie in the “Extra Efforts.” You’re unique, he’s unique, she’s unique, they’re unique, everyone is unique, but if you’re only doing what need to be done, you only make average efforts, just enough to get by, and you’re unique just like everyone else.
So to be really unique is to put in those extra efforts. Be willing to do more [than what they pay you]. Dare to be different! Dare to stand out! Dare to think outside box! Dare to lead! Dare to question! Dare to imagine creatively!
It’s easy to follow the crowds but you’ll be uniquely the same just like everyone else. By the time you realize that you have not lived up to your potential, you will be wasting many number of years. Nevertheless, it’s never too late to become what you might have been.
