YAU (You Are Unique)
We all are same and we all are unique. Call it a paradox or an irony of life. But it is the nature’s fact. We all have same body structure and organ makeup but science has proved that even the drop of our sweat is unique. At the same time, at the same place, in the same circumstances we think differently, we talk differently, we act differently and react even more differently. This is amazing! We may have the same parents, same teachers, and same friends but still we behave differently. Our talents are different and our skills are different. Upanishad says “EKO BRAHM, DWITIYO NAST” meaning whatever is created, it is one and only one. Second copy doesn’t exist.
It’s ironical that parents do not accept their kids as they are. They keep on comparing with other siblings. When kids grow, parents and teachers compare with other fellow students. When they become adults, their partners compare them with other friends/companions. In this entire process, we forget our original nature. Neither we become like others nor do we retain our originality. So there is no point in comparing with others. Rather, Compete With Self.
You are unique and everyone else is unique. Try to find your unique capabilities and passion. Developing and nurturing the unique qualities require less effort; give faster results, better understanding, stronger relationship, earlier success and more happiness.
5 Tips to find out uniqueness:
1. You can ask your parents, teachers; check your school report cards. If you have children observe them minutely and note down all important events to know their uniqueness.
2. Find out in past what you have enjoyed the most, worked for hours together but never experienced fatigue.
3. Go for psychometric test; take help of counselors and experts.
4. Meditate and try to go within, introspect.
5. Use elimination method. Stop doing things you dislike. In due course you will know what you love to do the most.
