|Who am I?|
|What can I do?|
Recognizing and encouraging individuality among community members is essential for a community’s survival. Allowing individuals to express themselves in their own unique manner helps keep communities alive and flourishing instead of faltering from lack of innovative and progressive ideas for growth and improvement.
|What if we see the world differently?|
What if you see the world differently than others? How does this help your community?
We all possess different perspectives from which we view the world. Some of us see things in numbers: these are the individuals who help maintain financial balance. Some of us are able to use words to communicate the various needs of a community: these are the individuals who become our spokespeople. Some of us have the ability to influence and motivate others to achieve personal and group success: these individuals are our leaders. Some of us have the ability to find beauty in the everyday-ness of life and the world around us: these individuals are our artists.
All of us are important and integral parts of our communities, and our individuality helps enhance the lives of those around us. No matter what our talents and gifts, we all need to actively participate in order to provide our communities with the tools they need to grow and thrive. And, conversely, we all need to encourage each others’ individual contributions to our world in order that all feel welcome no matter what their role in society.
|To each his own...|
|Do your thing, baby|
What is your gift, or talent? How have you used this talent to contribute to your community? Have you ever felt your talent is useless or unnecessary?
