In Og Mandino’s scroll Marked IV, he says that each one of us is nature’s greatest miracle, because there is no one else just like us, and we each have a responsibility to proclaim our uniqueness to the world. He even goes so far as to say we need to fan the flame of dissatisfaction with ourselves. That seems like a bizarre statement, doesn’t it? But no. He simply means that we each need to be ourselves. I need to be the best ME I can be…and get better and better at that every day!Best ME
The continual improvement I am seeking isn’t to be more like someone else. It is to be myself….even better. He even goes on to say a very powerful statement I am now embracing with full enthusiasm: “I will begin now to accent my differences and hide my similarities. I am a unique creature of nature. I am here to grow into a mountain, not to shrink to a grain of sand.”
