Yes you are

“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson

 ! you are special

The other day we talked about how so many of the people I meet don’t realize how good they are. In my world almost everyone I meet are special in some way. In fact some just take their unique talents for granted because they have confidence in themselves and what they do.

Some folks just seem to have natural talent while others develop their skills over time. The good news is that each of us can continue to develop ourselves as time goes by. The very best people I know started simply but then grew to personal greatness by always striving to do better. In fact when someone commits to doing their best every day walking the path to greatness becomes easy and natural.

I know you are already special but you may have more in you. Here is an article for those of us who want to continue our development.


How to feel special

By M.Farouk Radwan, MSc.


Self confidence and self esteem

One of the things that badly affects self confidence are the comparisons people always make between themselves and others. That’s why one of the best things you can do to feel more confident is to implement a belief that helps you stop these comparisons.

What belief could be better than convincing yourself that you are unique and special? If you managed to feel unique and special then these comparisons will stop and you will become more confident, that’s why i will tell you exactly what you need to do in order to feel special.

Step by step Guide to feeling Special

In order to feel that you are unique and special you need to do the following:

Never be a follower: If you are moving with the herd or if you are following a set of standards that are imposed on you by your society, friends or peers then you will never feel unique or special. In order to feel special you must not follow something unless you believe in it

Dare to be different: Do the things that you like with disregard to criticism, dare to have your own taste, style and make sure you let the world know that you are different. After all if you became like everyone else then how would you feel special?

Do what people fear to do: Dare to take risks, to do the things that others fear doing and to step out of your comfort zone. That would make you feel unique and special.

Keep reminding yourself that you are special: In the Solid Self confidence program i explained that Affirmations will never work if your statements contradicts with your beliefs but if you kept repeating true statements then your subconscious mind will believe in them. Keep reminding yourself that you are unique and you will feel special

Don’t get me wrong by doing something foolish just to be different. For example if everyone goes to school or college then don’t decide not to go just to be different or special.

Its all about being different in a good way that makes you feel special. For example if everybody is stuck in the rat race then it might be a good idea to be self-employed (just an example, i am not asking you to do that).

You will never be able to feel confident before you feel that you are unique and special.


Don’t ever doubt yourselves or waste a second of your life. It’s too short, and you’re too special.

A woman tells her friend, “My husband is an angel.”

Her friend replies, “You’re lucky, mine is still alive.”


Six reasons why computers must be female…

  1. As soon as you have one, a better one is just around the corner.
  2. No one but their creator understands their internal logic.
  3. Even your smallest mistakes are immediately committed to memory for future reference.
  4. The native language used to communicate with other computers is incomprehensible to everyone else.
  5. The message, “Bad command or filename,” is about as informative as: “If you don’t know why I’m mad at you, then I’m certainly not going to tell you.”
  6. As soon as you make a commitment to one, you find yourself spending half your pay on accessories for it.


The doctor came out of the operating room to talk with the man’s wife.  “I don’t like the looks of your husband,” he said.

“Neither do I,” said the wife, “but he’s not home much, and he’s great with the kids.”


When my granddaughter, Ann, was nine-years-old, she was given an assignment by her teacher to write a story on “Where my family came from.” The purpose was to understand her genealogy. I was not aware of her assignment when she asked me at the dining room table one night, “Grandma, where did I come from?”

I responded quite nervously, because my son and daughter-in-law were out of town and I was stalling until they returned home. “Well, honey, the stork brought you.”

“Where did mom come from then?”

“The stork brought her too.”

“Okay, then where did you come from?”

“The stork brought me too, dear.”

“Okay. Thanks, Grandma.”

I did not think anything more about it until two days later when I was cleaning Ann’s room and read the first sentence of her paper, “For three generations, there have been no natural births in our family.”


If a man is bald in front, he’s a thinker.  If he’s bald in the back, he is a lover. If he’s bald in front and back, he thinks he’s a lover.


“The difference between you and everyone else, is everyone else. And that’s a lot, so you should feel special.”
