Different is Clarity

You are different.

You like different things. You pursue different opportunities. You light up at different ideas.

And being different can feel like shame.

Why can’t I be more like them? Why am I the only one who doesn’t _____?

But different is a great gift. The way you are different is clarity about the unique way you’ll impact the world. Difference is a clue about your vocation. 

When you realize something about you is different, it can either be something you fake to fit in, or you lean towards to discover your calling.

See – vocation rarely starts as broad. It starts as a specific way that you are going to add value to the world around you. So every moment of difference is chiseling away at what is not you.

Vocation is about specificity.

And difference helps to specify.
