All roads lead somewhere.
Most times you arrive somewhere ordinary, and sometimes you discover the land of promise, the extraordinary. The question is, where would you rather be?
We know our answer, and while we have to be honest and say it is not easy, it is worth it, always.
Ordinary is okay. It is accepted, and it is the norm. But why settle when there are so much more to do and accomplish, right?
If you want to change something and be extraordinary, here are the steps you may want to consider to get there:
Don’t go for easy, seek what is extra challenging instead. The more you do this, the more you will open yourself to opportunities you may not have seen before. Take the path that is not often taken, the road less traveled and you will not only discover hidden treasures, you will also discover how capable you are in so many ways. Go ahead and challenge yourself, you have nothing to lose.
Be inquisitive and curious
Keep being curious and be inquisitive. Great ideas and discoveries come from being curious about how things are done, what may still be done. Don’t ever stop and always look for the next great thing. You never know when a golden idea might strike, which will be the beginning of your extraordinary journey.
If there is one thing you should not do against your will and your dreams and aspirations in life, it is settling. It will be a big mistake, especially when you know there is so much more to do and accomplish. Settle only when you are happy. However, when the voice inside you still screams that there is so much more you can do, listen to it and reconsider. You never really know what is in store for you if you stop. Keep going. You will know when you have achieved your final destination.
Stay sharp and keep the edge by continuing the learning process. A lot of things in life are evolving and changing. Even us change on a day to day basis. Read books, magazines, newspapers. Be updated on current events and take every opportunity to add knowledge and expand your horizon.
This should be non-negotiable. Always be yourself regardless of what other people say and expect. Listen to what you want, to what your heart and mind say and most importantly, do what makes you happy. When you do what you want, and you love what you do, being extraordinary comes easy.
The extra mile is never crowded because only a few people seek the extraordinary. Be among the few and change your life. Be the extra you need in your ordinary life.
