Today’s motivational nudge: Lean into all that’s unique about you

I think comparison with others has its place when we’re trying to learn more about our environment and the people around us. As we figure out how we’re different, we develop a baseline of information on where we are relative to others. This can be motivating if we’re using this knowledge to understand what is or to level up, learn more and accomplish more of our goals.

The caveat to this is if we let that comparison somehow drive us to tone down our unique traits in that effort to become more like everyone else. That should be just a strong no if you find yourself starting to think in those terms.

You can grow and evolve and yet lean into your own unique strengths, likes and dislikes and any funny and endearing quirks. As we embrace and lean into our uniqueness and like ourselves more for exactly who we are, we’ll be less likely to need validation from others.

Today’s motivational nudge is: Lean into and embrace everything that’s unique about you.

🌻 Embrace where you are in this very moment.

🌻 Have goals and strive for more because that is what you want, not because you think others will accept you and give you more credit if you accomplish something specific.

🌻Lean into your specific strengths and build on them.

🌻Accept any perceived flaws and learn how to support yourself so you can work with them instead of resisting them.

🌻Laugh at your quirks and enjoy being exactly who you are.

  1. How interesting that I was just mentioning about me being a jack of all trades, then I see this post. Sometimes I try doing what others are doing, which is to hyper focus, but I find that I concentrate much better when I stay true to myself instead of trying to be someone else. Anyway, thanks for this post!
