Anonymous crowd walking on a street in New York

It turns out that roughly 108 billion people have lived on this earth.

And you are one of them.

As if that figure isn’t staggering enough, here’s another number that will blow your mind:

1 (also pronounced “one”).

In all that 108 billion that have ever lived, there is only one version of you.

No one else looks, smells, or acts, exactly like you, and no one ever will.

Whether you like it or not, you are completely unique for a ka-triillion years in both directions.

So today’s as good a day as any to quit trying to be like anyone else.

Permit a great quote from the ACKNOWLEDGE THE DIFFERENCES principle from The Way of Openness:

“Similarities are a great place to start, but a shallow and boring place to end.”
