Extraordinary starts with you—perhaps an ordinary person at an ordinary job doing ordinary things on an ordinary day. No special advantages. No remarkable skills that can’t be duplicated. No large bank account. Just all-around “ordinary.” Then, you decide to do something extra. To be something extra. Something a lot-a-bit extra. And not just one time. And then one day, everyone watching you will notice that “ordinary” is no longer an accurate description for the person you have become. For what you have done. Does extraordinary happen by applying any of the following actions ? Why not choose to be EXTRAORDINARY ?–

  1. I think people who set themselves to changing the world and making the most of their talents are not different than you — they just cancel ordinary thoughts. Extraordinary living starts with a simple shift in mindset.
    Every person on Earth has thoughts like these, I’m not good enough, or I’ll never make it, or I can’t do it. But people who behave in extraordinary ways separate themselves by the wholesale rejection of negative thinking. When negative thought comes in…Bam! They call it out as disempowering and revert to extraordinary thinking. Thoughts like, I can, and Life is good, and I am extraordinary and capable of accomplishing whatever I set my mind to, become normal if you initiate phase one of extraordinification.

  3. “The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is that little extra.” – Jimmy Johnson.

    Right blend of above cited 20 actions can literally make an ordinary an extraordinary. I liked the following actions the most to be an extraordinary:

    #3 : Learn from your mistakes.
    #6 : Be kind.
    #7 : Let yourself be inspired.
    #12 : Lend a hand.
    #15 : Be more efficient with your time.
    #19 : Stop defending yourself.
    #20 : Decide to take action today.

    By avoiding procrastination and taking action right away, being more productive, being kind and lending helping hand can make a difference in one’s life.

  4. LET YOURSELF BE INSPIRED is the key to add extra to the ordinary. If we always sense that there is a possibility to improve then miracle will start happening.our professional, social, family life neither would be extra nor ordinary it will surely become extraordinary.

  5. An extraordinary life is one you design. You live a life that you want to live, a life that’s exciting and invigorating. You don’t have to live a life of extraordinary wealth, though there’s nothing wrong with that. But you are in charge of your life. You’re doing what you want to do, you’re being paid for doing something you’d be doing anyway, and you’re genuinely happy. To me, the best definition of an extraordinary life is a happy life but among these points I beleive that point no 15 and 20 is important to make extra ordinary things happen like when we are efficient towards the time like When you learn to take control of your time, you improve your ability to focus. And with increased focus comes enhanced efficiency, because you don’t lose momentum. You’ll start to breeze through tasks more quickly and then taking action is one of the most necessary steps in effectuating life changes. However, as most of us know, sometimes it is very difficult to take that first step and commit to a desired achievement but You can immediately begin by gathering your willpower (a strong self-control determination that allows you to do something difficult) and stop procrastinating.

  6. Extraordinary starts with you—let yourself be inspired always.

    By not being satisfied with ordinary. By being vigilant. Being obsessed. No excuses. Just a relentless focus on being better.

  7. Greetings for the day! It has been very well said by someone that GOD has gifted us all something unique, something extraordinary. We all are special in one way or the other. Someone amongst us may be a good teacher, another person may be a good orator, still someone may be a good cook, someone may be a good guide or mentor. This means that without our knowing the things sometimes we keep on doing certain things extraordinarily. As has been wisely said, “Winners do not do different things, rather they do the things differently.” …how true…a thing which seems to be next to impossible to a person, there may be another person who is capable of doing that thing with a snap of a finger. Thus, extraordinary things do not happen on their own, one has to do and others have to approve that the thing done is extraordinary. To me – learning from mistakes, being fearless, leading someone, being invincible, decide to take action immediately and never to whine, are some of the points which may make one do things extraordinary.

  8. According to me , special quality of extraordinary is to deal equally well with success and failure. Extraordinary people have practical confidence . They are practical because they take actions and confidence because no matter what the result may be ? They believe in their success is unavoidable . This positive atittude allows them to be more fearless , be an expert and work more harder .

  9. In my opinion No: 7 is the trump card. Getting inspired by family, friends & Colleagues is a sigal that you respect them, this enables us to live a life full of interesting experiences. We naturally make a connect with other people with their authentic self. In addition,we develop a capability / learn to take risks to find adventure.

  10. Greatness comes by doing a few small and smart things each and every day. Comes from taking little steps, consistently. Comes from a making a few small chips against everything in your professional and personal life that is ordinary, so that a day eventually arrives when all that’s left is The Extraordinary.

  11. We need to be inspired to do extraordinary things. We can act only when we are ourselves motivated and encouraged. We will then apply our knowledge and understandings to be more creative and do innovative things. We will then be kind, lend our hands ,stop whining etc.

  12. The extraordinary person knows it’s the intrinsic qualities that bring true satisfaction—those that satisfy our needs for emotional intimacy and personal growth. Focusing on extrinsic goals, by contrast—things such as physical attractiveness, wealth and fame—not only doesn’t satisfy us, it can damage our well-being by setting us up to feel that what we have is never enough. The extraordinary ordinary people seem to know instinctively the folly of joining the crowd on the hamster wheel. Instead, they are content to keep their focus on “being” rather than “having.”

  13. I follow points 7,13 and 20….I get inspired very soon… Not by the people because of their popularity but by their words, their principles and by their ways of living… Now a days we find more people which do not follow what they speak… We are supposed to teach those things which we strictly follow… Besides it is very much necessary to learn from our past mistakes…. Decide to take action today is another point I have started following… It happens normally we keep thinking ‘I will do this when I get retired’…. or so many other things…..but I realised that time and situation won’t be the same that time… So it’ s better to start today what we want to do..

Extraordinary people live the same life & face the same challenges as ordinary person do but their response & set of values are different.For being extraordinary we should learn from our mistakes ,we can get inspiration from others, we should not repeat our past mistakes, stop whining & we should use our life time efficiently.

  16. According to me no. 7 is most essential thing to be an extraordinary person. From the beginning of the day keep yourself inspired by every single thing. Nature inspires us. Sun, air, moon,stars, birds, plants, soil give us inspiration to do our work on time. If we plant one seed in soil,it gives us hundred times more in a form of tree. On the other hand, at our work places, many people inspire us. I inspire from many people like my colleagues, my floor maids, mr. moti ji , my students. They teach several lessons to me. So taking inspiration from others n doing well is one of the good values.

  17. I personally feel that point 3 and 20 play a vital role to make someones life extraordinary.If we are ready to accept our mistakes and we learn from them, then we are leading our life to right path. Secondly if we take quick action wherever required it means we are mature enough to make our life smooth and sutle.

  18. Being Extraordinary is to stand out with the different values in your life. A Small thought and small values make you extraordinary in a crowd. It might be a little gesture or action. We need to be inspired by every little organism. Even ants teach us many things.

  19. It’s become increasingly clear to me that an extraordinary life doesn’t come from massive financial wealth, climbing the corporate ladder, fancy titles, or 15 minutes of fame.If you want to live an extraordinary life, you have to identify and appreciate the extraordinary things that are already part of your life.
    In my opinion no.3,6,7, are very important for extraordinary life
    We need to learn from our mistakes so that we do not run the risk of repeating them.
    Being kind and Don’t let fear turn you against your playful heart. Let yourself be inspired. You might be surprised at the impact it has–on you, and on those around you.

  21. The best way to live an extraordinary life is to be extraordinary. Be extraordinary in how you treat people, including yourself. Be extraordinary in how you choose to spend your time. Be extraordinary through your thoughts, words and actions. When you are distracted, it’s impossible to notice the extraordinary things around you and how you feel about your life. Unplug, look up and be present.

  31. From the above checklist I guess 3rd,7th, 13th as well as 17th point matters the most from converting being Ordinary to Extraordinary. I carry the idea that one must learn from the mistakes .Errors pave the path for learning instead of dejection. So what’s the matter if the ball don’t hit the target ,try it from another end. One must not stop from inspiring oneself. They should keep motivating to themselves. Past has gone. So no need to crib over the things once those are done….that’s my outlook about it but yeah …don’t forget to learn from that bitter-sweet experiences .The last but not the least is … ‘Planning’ that is the most important to raise high in life. Without it, a person stands nowhere. It’s the necessity of a successful life.

Moreover , lending a hand is also not everybody’s cup of tea hence this trait too make us unique
