220 | You think it’s true, but it’s not.


Back when I got started I had a major fear. Actually, I had a lot of fears, but one especially stood out.

I looked out over the internet and saw a LOT of people already successful doing the exact thing I wanted to do. I had the mistaken belief that if someone was already doing it, in my case a LOT of someones, then there was no room for me.

I recently found a quote I saw years ago that helped:

“Everything that needs to be said has already been said. But, since no one was listening, everything must be said again.”
~Andre Gide

You can say what has already been said, but add YOU to it.

This is another reason I love the personality-based, relationship business I teach. You learn the ins and outs of the subject you want to teach and add YOU to it. No one can copy YOU.

I’m a combination of my mentors, my thoughts, my actions, and what I’ve learned (and didn’t learn) from my actions. That makes me different from anyone else, even if we talk about the same things.

I’m going to say something that has been said a different way than anyone else. I bring a different angle, a different voice, and different view and so do you…

See, I bet if you were to write an email based on this quote, you’d make a different point, maybe a better point.

Maybe you’d make the same point, but make it more clear. You’d use a better story and point out someone that did an action that proves your point.

Maybe you’d be sarcastic or more optimistic or talk about your dog.

Maybe you’d decide this quote is dumb and find a different one.

No matter what, if you have a desire to be heard and create value for others, do it. It may have already been “said”, but not by you.
