05 Mar Being extraordinary?
Being extraordinary has a different meaning for each and every one of us. We think, live and strive for the greater good and at the same time look for our own unique victories.
All the people who we consider to have achieved remarkable success have something in common, they never gave up!
No matter the obstacles, the countless mistakes, they kept going without compromising their dreams.
Thomas Edison made countless errors before producing a functioning light bulb. Vincent Van Gogh only sold one painting ever, but look at his art today! I dare you to find one person who wouldn’t recognise ‘Starry Night.’
Elon Musk is a well-known household name, however, a quick google will reveal the layers of failure that lead to where he is today.
Extraordinary people set goals and despite any circumstance, pull through with their target in sight. All it takes is an open mind, a clear vision, an impression that mistakes are necessary and telling yourself this in order to learn, gain confidence and grow. Finally, and maybe most importantly, if the obstacle seems too great to overcome, don’t let it intimidate you- for all you know, you could be a possible step away from mind-blowing success!
Focus, balance and willpower- three simple factors that will deem anybody unstoppable.
Exceptional people never say, “I can’t do it”- they combine curiosity and determination, they think outside the box, they ask questions and find solutions. Most significantly, they never give up. They are proactive and on top of every situation for there is always more than one option available, and if not, no situation could defy a simple solution. Knowing and accepting this will only make you stronger and mould you into the successful leader we all want to be.
Outstanding people build bright ideas slowly and execute them quickly, they possess good judgement, whereas indecisive people change their minds often and struggle while building, starting over and over again, never reaching their intended destination.
Rome was not built in a day and neither is a remarkable person. A life well lived and decisions well made will result in a happy and memorable human, worthy of success.
