Note #10: You Are Not Special

You are not special. The moment you realise it, you grow up. You are mature, now.

We grow up daydreaming of becoming an astronaut, actor, soldier, or a Formula One driver. We believe we are the most special person in the whole world. We literally feel we can be anything we want. But somewhere along the way we lose the plot and adjust for something less. And we wonder what went wrong and where it went wrong.

A super special kid who wanted to be a musician, settled for writing as a career. It made me think. Made me think what happened to my dreams and aspirations. And it made me realise something.

We are not special. We were never special. But we have the potential to be special. We have to make ourselves special. Work towards our dreams and aspirations and make it a reality. That is when we become special.
