I recently had a birthday and I was doing a mental check of all my accomplishments and what goes right in my life. I was feeling really good about myself knowing that I get up, go out and give my best each day. I was talking to a friend about her birthday, which was a few days after mine and she was in a state of dread. She complained that she hadn’t accomplished goals she’d set for herself and saw aging as a losing battle. What a difference in perspective I thought to myself. My friend thought her life was average and boring. Whereas I think my life is extraordinary. The difference is that I actively create my life and I told her that she could too.
You see, if you're willing to devote just a few minutes a day to positively working on yourself, you can and will achieve everything you could possibly desire, and your age won't even matter!
But there is a catch....
Instead of settling for what's average, you have to make the decision to be extraordinary. Check out these 5 tips to Becoming Extraordinary
Don’t dismiss anything as impossible. Don’t let yourself be restricted by imaginary boundaries you’ve created in your mind. The fact is that you can only create what you believe is possible. Your first step to an extraordinary life is to believe that anything is possible and you will be surprised at how the world places new unexpected possibilities in your path.
Be completely certain that you can overcome any obstacle. Deal with each obstacle one-on-one until they have no more effect on your life. Remain 100% sure that you can overcome anything that is blocking you from reaching your goal. Keep your eye on the prize and believe deep down to your core that everything will work itself out. As long as you keep this attitude, you can make miracles come true.
When you discover a new opportunity or get an idea, don’t start tomorrow. Don’t start next week. Take action RIGHT NOW. If you haven’t taken any action on a goal, then you haven’t made it a true goal. Action and achievement are intertwined. Ask yourself if it's in alignment with your present goals. If it is, act on it now. If it's not table it for later.
Let go of procrastination. Procrastination stems from the limiting belief that putting off now will make things easier later. Much of the times it’s just the opposite. The truth is that you can never do anything well if you wait until the last minute. In the long run the future you will experience more pain by stressing and trying to throw things together in a short amount of time. If you are not excited about your goals enough to start now, then it’s time to find new goals that arouse passion and eagerness.
Get clear on what you really want out of life. Instead of scattering your energy across many different goals, narrow things down to what you really want then pursue it with laser like focus. You’ll see the results begin to come in quickly. So ask yourself, what exactly is it that you want to achieve in dollars, in number of hours worked, who you spend your time with, what you want your life to look like, and so on. As you hone in on to what you want looks like, you will start seeing it come true for you
One of the secrets of extraordinary people is that they don't just accept what's normal; they choose to create their own reality.
If you want to join their ranks, you don't have to do it alone.
