Individuality: How to Be a Unique Person That People Will Remember

What makes a person an individual? Aren't people mostly the same, underneath it all? Can a person aspire to be different and stand out from the rest? People do have an underlying connection to all other people, but there are qualities, when possessed, that can set a person worlds apart from their peers. Here are those qualities and how to find them within yourself.



Honesty

An honest person says what they mean. There is no difference between the person you see on the outside and who they are on the inside. It takes an immense amount of courage to present yourself to the world this way, because if you show the world who you really are and they don't like you, there's nowhere for you to hide. If you are willing to put yourself at this kind of level though, it will set you apart from the crowd. You will not be liked by everyone. There will be controversy. You will make people angry, hurt, and afraid. But if you can be yourself even then, your uniqueness will shine like a beacon for all to see.



Risk

A unique person takes risks. There's the risk of personal honesty discussed above. There are also risks that are necessary to get what you want out of life. Take risks to get what you want. Average people wait for the world to come to them. They think they aren't really good enough to have what they want, or even what they need. It takes a unique person to chance that they have everything it takes to achieve their desires, and keep taking those risks, even in the face of failure. Take risks: leap, fall, and get up to leap again. That is what breeds true individuality.



Confidence

It is the unique person who doesn't need the approval of others to know how much they are worth. Confidence sets a person apart from the crowd. True confidence is different from bravado; it quietly knows its worth. It is so confident of its worth that dissenting opinions simply slide off, not affecting it at all. Attain confidence, and the entire world will be open to you.



Kindness

The world is not universally kind. It takes a unique soul to touch others with a kind and gentle nature. Mother Theresa did not have talent, money, or success. She will be forever remembered for the way she treated others with passionate kindness.



Quiet

When you become honest, brave, confident, and kind, there will be no need to tell others about it. They will see for themselves the caliber of person you have become. A person with low self-confidence engages in wars with others to prove their own worth. A wise person knows to keep quiet. You cannot convince others of your ideas or your worth; when you know this, you'll be free to live your life outside of the world's constant scrabbling for superiority. And, like cream, you will rise to the top of the scrabble anyway.
