There will only ever be one you. In all of history. In all of time and space. Past, present and future. There will only EVER be one you. You are totally and completely unique.
No one can see the world the way you do. Experience things the way you do. Contribute to the planet, what you can. You were created to bring something completely unique to this world. There is one thing that you and only you can contribute in a way that no one else ever could. Why then, would you ever want to be like someone else?
I realise that might be hard to believe for some people. I know it is something I have struggled with in the past. I am a photographer. There are literally thousands upon thousands of photographers. A with the digital age and the price of camera equipment more affordable than ever before, more and more people are taking up this art form. So what can I possibly offer that is any different, any more special.
I can offer my unique perspective. The way I see the world. And for me (given that a great deal of my audience is overseas), I get to share rural Queensland with the rest of the world. Something that is pretty ordinary and mundane to me, but something that most people would never get to experience for themselves. They get to see Queensland through my eyes.
In the world of creativity, we are all looking for new ideas, for inspiration, for something different. Our own distinctive style. And coming up with that spark, that something special is not easy. But it is more than possible.
Look deep within. Realise that what you have to offer is far greater, far more beneficial than rehashing what someone else has already done.
Your individual story is waiting to be told. Your unique contribution is ready to be born. It's your time to shine!
