The Trap of Sameness

In our quest to achieve success, we risk falling into sameness.

This post from Seth Godin points out how important it is to maintain the things that set us apart, make us unique, differentiate our voice and story and work from everyone else. 

Ironically, being yourself and whittling down your message to its essence is the true path to broader appeal and success. 

If you want to achieve greatness, don’t try to be like everyone else. Believe so much in what it is you can contribute to the world that everything you do is unmistakably you. We don’t need another Michael Hyatt, Chris Brogan, Marie Forleo, or even another Seth Godin. Those people are successful because they’re following their own paths, listening to their hearts, being true to their purpose. 

That’s what we need from you. You’ve got something the world needs. It’s okay to borrow a theme, copy a recipe, modify something that works. Just make it your own. Michael Hyatt didn’t invent leadership, he’s just teaching us all more about it. But he’s doing it in his own way. And it’s different than Chris Brogan’s way. We need them both.

Take two minutes and let Seth Godin inspire you to be yourself. 

That’s who we really want to follow, by the way. You, not your version of someone else.

Hone your message into its purest version and share it with the world.

That’s the good stuff. Avoid the trap of sameness. 

And start today.
