    Everybody is extraordinary. Find your true inner power. It is always there. You are just unaware of it. You will discover that you are not your thoughts, but something much greater than thoughts. Beyond all thoughts.

    You can find something wonderful  within you from showing confidence and   kindness.

    You feel ordinary because you insist on comparing yourself to others!
    Life is a personal journey.
    Once you keep your focus on your own personal growth through your life experiences you'll sense a wave of freedom.
    Oftentimes when people frequently point out things we're "good at" we tend to discount it as being insignificant. We tell them and  ourselves, "Anybody can do that!" 
    After receiving a compliment some people can't just say, "Thank you."
    They have to downplay the compliment. This is because they do a lot of "negative self-talk" and when they're complimented it doesn't match what they think of themselves.
    Self-esteem comes from one's self. If you don't believe you're special you will never feel special. Start the day affirming yourself positively.
