There is very little that is inherently special about any of us. Most of us are of average height, income, etc. Even if you are an outlier in height or something else, you’re most likely average in other ways. Special is not a divine right handed down through genealogy.
Special is a choice. It takes a different mentality to do the things that other people will not or cannot. Showing up is not particularly special unless the place that you show up is the top of Mt. Everest. In each moment, we have a choice to be special or be like everyone else. Being special yesterday gives you no guarantee toward being special today. You’ve got to put chips back on the table, double down if you can because the world owes you absolutely nothing! The word ‘deserve’ belongs exclusively to those that have chosen to do more.
So what will you be today? Will you choose to be special or be just like everyone else? Special is a choice that you can either make or be disappointed in the thought that it wasn’t your day to be chosen as ‘special’. It’s not a gift, it’s a choice!
