Only you can be you.

by | Jan 13, 2014


I hear voices… Maybe you’ve heard them too?

It’s the voice that tells me that I’m not good enough to do something I really want to do.

It’s the voice that tells me I’ll never finish what I’ve started (including this blog post).

It’s the voice that tells you that you’re not unique enough to stand out and be different.

It’s the voice that tells you that you are confined to live a life that someone else has in mind for you.

It’s the voice that wants to trick you into thinking you are a nobody, you won’t ever belong, and you have nothing interesting to offer.

It’s the voice that tells you that you’re not talented enough to succeed like some other dude in Silicon Valley or a Mommy Blogger type with a killer social media platform and a book deal.

These voices need to make a like a 4 year old and go sit in timeout…


The world needs you, and only you can be you. You are gifted and designed in a way that is unique to you. There’s a role in your community and on your team that only you can fill. You are the only you this world has, and the world needs you, exactly as you are, right now.

You have a powerful story to tell that the universe is waiting to hear.

What’s keeping you from breaking the silence of the universe to share your story and change someone’s life? Today?

From your desk… in your cube… on that conference call… today.
