Be Uniquely You, No matter what!

A diverse group of people embracing their unique traits and personalities

Be uniquely you, no matter what.

No matter the situation, always be yourself.

There’s something special about people who stick to their true morals no matter what’s happening. It’s not always the easiest thing to do, and I speak from my own experiences. In the past, I used to be a “yes man.” If the boss wanted something done, I’d just go ahead and do it exactly how they wanted.

Even if they gave me a tight deadline, I’d work late to finish the project on time, even if it meant working extra hours. (Sound familiar?) Let me tell you where this got me—nowhere. I never got a promotion, didn’t get the chance to spend more time with my family, and didn’t even get extra pay because I was on salary.

I’ve changed my approach to things, and it’s working well for me. Now, when a manager tells me, “I need this done this way,” and I can see an easier way to do it, I ask why it has to be done exactly their way. If their answer is usually, “Because I want it done this way,” I start looking for a new job while finishing the project the easier way.

Life is too short to spend every moment doing things you don’t want to do or doing them in an old-fashioned way just because the boss prefers it. I don’t let myself stay in those situations for too long; I start exploring my options right away.

Here’s what I’ve noticed since trying these new approaches: Every good leader says, “Great thinking; I loved how you handled this situation,” or “Great job; how did you get it done so quickly? It would have taken me twice as long.

I’ve also had some “bosses” (a boss is not a leader, but that’s for a different blog, lol) scold me, saying, “Why didn’t you do this exactly the way I told you to?” and “What makes you think that you are so smart? You must feel like you deserve my job.” I don’t want to spend much time around these types of people. To be really honest, they are more likely than not to be threatened by having you work under them. I can’t help them grow, and they definitely can’t help me grow.

So, what are you waiting for? Take control of your situation. Stop riding the train; it’s headed to the same destination as everyone else on it. Jump out of that train and walk the path to true success. It might take a bit longer, and it might be a bit tougher. But in the end, you’ll be so much happier throughout the entire journey. It’s not about how fast we can get to the final destination; it’s about the experiences that shape us along the way.

God has a plan for every single person on this earth. We were all put here for a reason, and it wasn’t by accident. He took time to design us as individuals and cared for each and every one of us. The Bible proves this in several verses. He explains this in Luke 12:6-7: “Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? Yet not one of them is forgotten by God. And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered.

So do not be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.” He also talks about it in Jeremiah 29:11: “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

God knew us even before we were born. He knew who we were and what he wanted us to do. We each have different purposes, and I’m grateful for that every day. I’ve decided to take the less-traveled path, understanding that every challenge God helps me overcome is making me into the person he wants me to be. I believe everything happens for us, not to us. I trust that God is in control, and I find comfort in knowing, “If God is for us, who can be against us?”

Stay strong, and understand that every part of our lives has a purpose. God is making us better every day. In the comments, share how you handle similar situations. God is always great. Stay strong and be yourself until we talk again.
