What Makes You Special?


We are all unique. What is your special quality that makes you unique?

My objective for writing this to all of you today is that I wish someone had forced me to think about this harder when I was younger! Why? Because it would have been those unique qualities I would have focused on as I was working on everything else.

If I asked you today to email me and answer this one question, What is Special About You? Would you be able to go right to the computer and answer me and clearly articulate what you feel in your gut is special about you? Do you actually know you have greatness in you? More women than you think have challenges answering this question.

We are all born for greatness. The issue is some of us do not take the time to figure out what ours is. Did you ever just sit down  and think is this all there is? Is this all it could all be? I know I have at one time or another in my life. The answer is no. We can make it whatever we want to make it. We have a blank canvas and can design our own lives. We all need to use our God given talents, the unique traits that make us what we are and use them to move forward.

I know you have that feeling way deep inside your gut  and you know there is a special purpose for you. You see, ever  since I was a little girl, I can remember feeling I had a special purpose, I was meant to be somebody. The problem was I didn’t share it, I was afraid to talk about it because I was afraid of what other people would think or say. I had no outstanding talent, like singing, I wasn’t artistic, I wan’t going to be a model. So I felt if I said it out loud they might say well what makes you so special? But I felt I was put here to do something great!

If you asked me what was special about me I probably couldn’t have clearly answered you then. As I got older I started focusing on my positive qualities and started to use them to help me grow my business. I am a leader, not a follower and what makes me special is that I can encourage and lead others. I have the ability to get along with many different types of people from all different backgrounds. I am passionate, caring, not afraid to take risks. I believe I have greatness inside of me and you have to believe you do too.

Now, I wish I could tell you exactly what that exact greater purpose is. I do believe is that it involves a lot of things I am doing now through our women’s organization, The Entrepreneurial Think Tank For Women. I believe there is a lot more to be done and they will appear when the moment is right. I am open to all possibilities. The key is you must be open and ready to see those opportunities.

I am a true believer that everything happens for a reason, good and bad, and what we do with those experiences determines where we will go. So where I am, is exactly where I am meant to be at this time in my life.

We have to take risks to discover our purpose and to achieve greatness, but life without risk is boring isn’t it? Find your true passion and use what makes you special, your strengths, to help you to get to where you need to go. Networking and connecting will help you find out your strengths. Get out there and mingle and connect with people and watch what comes out of you! You will see what I mean.

I think that as I got older it became easier for me to validate the fact that I am special damn it. I  have greatness inside of me and its o.k! I don’t have to hide it, and I don’t have to deny it. I didn’t have to worry about what other people said or what they thought. Neither do you. We all have our own journey. What other people thing is none of our business, I am sure you have heard that before. My goal is that none of you wait. Work on figuring out what makes you special right now.

My awesome business partner, Vanessa Coppes, refers to it as my shining  light! We all have a shining light inside of us that we need to let shine! Never let anyone in your life dim that light.

We all just have to continue to work on bringing it out.Get  out of that comfort zone! I hope to take a few of you with me on my journey through my blogs. Sometimes its fun not knowing whats around the corner ladies! Remember, it’s a marathon not a sprint.

What makes you special? I would love to hear it!
