Ordinary or Extraordinary: Which Will You Choose?

We seem to always have a list of reasons, challenges, and constraints as to why we can’t be extraordinary and live life extraordinarily.

  1. I don’t have enough money to do that
  2. now is just not the right time, I’ll do it later
  3. I would sooo do that if I didn’t have:
    • a family
    • a house to take care of
    • mortgage payment
    • the responsibility of protecting a safe, secure life
  4. I’m too old
  5. it’s impossible
  6. I simply can’t

We think these “reasons” are what’s holding us back when, in fact, they are not. Being extraordinary is a choice. Young, old, male, female, rich, poor, or whatever, it makes no difference. Anyone can be extraordinary; however, in order to be extraordinary, you must be willing (most people aren’t) to give up your ordinary life and make big changes. Warning: this will be uncomfortable and difficult. 


Here are some steps to start living YOUR extraordinary life:

  • embrace the unknown, there are so many great lessons to be learned
  • step outside your comfort zone, don’t run away from new experiences
  • realize there will be sacrifices
  • improve your confidence and believe in yourself
  • understand that you deserve to go after your dreams
  • know that failure is inevitable and that it’s ok, it’s part of the learning process
  • forget about what people think, there will always be naysayers and judgemental people
  • get out of your own way

The secret of living an extraordinary life is to take control of the mind since this alone will determine whether you live in a suffering state or a beautiful state. In the end, it’s all about the power of decisions. Our lives are shaped not by our conditions, but by our decisions.” Tony Robbins
