Do you want to be extraordinary?
Often high-achieving individuals strive to be ‘extraordinary’. There’s a deep desire to be different. Yet that same desire can alienate us, bring loneliness and prevent others around us from reaching their full potential (because they don’t dare to think of themselves as ‘extraordinary’).
A quote to keep in mind
Here’s one of my client’s reflections during one of their sessions:
“The world is changed by humans and we all have that capacity. Those who change the world are not special, they are just humans. We all can do it. Their superpower is being aware of it.”
How to truly be extraordinary
What if we adopted the mindset that we are all ‘ordinary’, in the sense that each of us has the potential of achieving extraordinary things?
Those things can range from building an organisation with a social impact, developing a product that changes people’s lives, creating art that makes us feel deep emotions … to empowering people we meet in our day-to-day, making people around us happy with a smile, or raising children who are kind and compassionate humans.
What if you adopted the mindset that we are all ‘ordinary’ in our ability to achieve extraordinary things? How would you feel differently about yourself and each person you encounter? How would you act differently towards yourself and each person you encounter?
