The older and wiser I get the more I realize every woman must believe they can make a difference in our world. “What we are is God’s gift to us. What we become is our gift back to God,” is a framed quote on my desk that inspires me daily. Do you believe you have one or two unique contributions to make in your life?

After listening to more than 30 amazing speakers and activists at the Global Citizen Now event in Manhattan Friday, I walked away with that one thought – each of them is making a difference in their own unique way. Both collectively and collaboratively they are becoming change agents for our globe. They agree to the larger mission of saving our planet but use unique contributions to make it happen.

I went up to Elizabeth Vazquez, CEO and Co-Founder of since she was reiterating my 30-year personal mission of getting more people to buy from women-owned companies. The difference between her and me was they are an International organization and I focus on local, regional, and state-wide connections. I told her my history and she said, “Thank you Tracy for contributing so long to this mission.”

Sometimes we don’t feel like we measure up to the successful people we see on stage, on television, or on global platforms but we do. Changing the world in our unique way is not about competition. It is about knowing what we want to do, getting up every day and doing it, and eventually working alongside others with the same mission. Nothing gets done quickly working by ourselves. We need each other to accomplish big goals.

The next time you judge yourself based on your own ego or station in life, think differently. You are more than enough to make a change in the world and across the globe if you want. Recognize your gifts, establish a strong mindset, take the steps to stay involved, and also put your hat in a larger ring. You can’t think small if you want to be a major contributor to a larger cause. Consider yourself equal and move forward.

Today’s Wednesday Wisdom is to remind you that, you my friend, have all the talent you need to make major contributions in your area of expertise or passion. Instead of feeling less than a star or someone with a larger marketing platform, see how you can join them in working together or watch their steps which might lead you to be more creative in your own workload.

Don’t try to reinvent the wheel, jump on board and start steering your ship towards the fleet of others out ahead of you or on your side. Sail forward together making the ultimate difference you want to make in this world.
