Here are 5 Common Thinking errors that prevent you from standing out from the Crowd:
1. Being Unique is The Same as Being Effective
So you are unique and your existence will leave a mark in the world. It is a fact that no one can be like you and your experience makes you stand out from the rest.
You have been blessed with talent and your mind is one of a kind. You are so special and endowed with so much creativity.
Yet if all you have is just being unique; if with all your creativity, no one can benefit from your experience.
If your Talent can’t solve anyone’s problems and all you have become is a spectator in your world, then you need to question this mindset and realize that Being unique is not the same as being effective.
