3 ways to make your life extraordinary

3 ways to make your ordinary life, Extraordinary

Many people often ask me how they can transform their mundane life. The ingredients to creating an extraordinary life are usually hidden right in plain sight.  Here are 3 quick tips on how to go from an Ordinary to an Extraordinary Life.

NEARBY

When we look at the lives of the people we admire we often wish we had their set of life circumstances.  What we often forget is that before they were successful their lives appeared just as normal as our own.  So what is their advantage?  The first key to transforming your life is to start with what is Nearby.  There are opportunities all around you but the beginning of every journey towards greatness always appears uneventful.  Finding opportunities in the seemingly ordinary involves a bit of creativity; dreaming of what could be rather than dwelling on what already exists.  When you start seeing the world around you as a tree ripe with potential you will begin to recognize that there are an inexhaustible amount of possibilities for you to explore, nearby.

Nearby

NORMAL

We’ve all at one point agreed with the statement that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but have you ever thought about what that truly means?  The meaning can be found in another saying “One man’s junk is another man’s treasure.”  Don’t underestimate what looks normal, but rather invest in it and watch it grow. When you switch the focus of your life from consumer focussed to investing in others and creating, this act alone will have a powerful impact on your mood. Give your life a new found momentum by reimagining what appears normal and turning your ideas into something that impacts the future of our world. 

NOW

The perfect moment you’ve been waiting for is NOW. Your dreams should never fall victim to an obsession with perfectionism.  Your personality, skills, and vision have uniquely equipped you to creatively solve a problem in a way that no one else could imagine. Your dreams should never become future tales of what could have been. The moment is today. Grab it!

Success isn’t always at your doorstep but opportunities are everywhere.   Orient your future towards your long term ambition but today, start with the opportunity that is right here, right now. In these 3 ways you will make an ordinary life…..Extraordinary!
