How do you see yourself? Do you say, “I can’t do it?” Do you feel insignificant? If so, you will identify with the below quote.

“If you think you are too small to make a difference, try sleeping with a mosquito.”

-Dalai Lama

I am asking again; do you ever feel insignificant? I have. I had jobs where I felt that as part of the team, I did not count. I did not stand up and share my ideas because I did not want to look stupid. Overall, I appeared as if I was not a team player. I was a follower and never got promoted because I was not confident in my job or myself. As I got older and more comfortable with myself, I started actively working as a team player. Once I gained some confidence, my career was more successful. This success overflowed into my personal life also.

The above quote mentions mosquitos, and you may think, “ugh.” Many see mosquitoes as bothersome and insignificant, but they are significant no matter how small they are. We see mosquitoes as pesky little critters. They quietly get on your skin and start sucking the blood out of your body. Although they are a nuisance, they do have a purpose.

Mosquitoes play an ecological role, serving as pollinators and as a food source for other wildlife. The mosquito is a nearly universal animal. We have 110 trillion across almost all the planet, and we've had them for over 100 million years.

No matter what you do in life, you make a difference! So live life to the fullest, allow others to see your greatness, and accept that you have significance in this world.

How would your life change if you started living to your potential? My life became worth living once I began doing what I knew I could do but was too fearful to attempt. I have come to a place where I am pleased with my life, and I know that I am significant and make a difference.

Today, go out in this world and make a difference.
