It is sometimes easy to forget that we are each unique; that there is no one else on this earth who is identical to us. We can become convinced that we have nothing important to offer to others and so miss out on the opportunities we don't take.
We need to remember that our perspective is always unique and our ideas and opinions have value. Others may not agree with our views; but, maybe our views will make the difference. We won't know until we try.
Use what talent you possess:
the woods would be very silent
if no birds sang except those that sang best.
Henry Van Dyke
