To live an extraordinary life, you don’t need to do much. You don’t even have to do extraordinary things! You simply must be able to do ordinary things extraordinarily.
Here are 10 ordinary ways that when done consistently and excellently will lead you to an extraordinary, successful life!
1. Pay attention.
Pay attention to your friends, your peers, your family. Don’t just listen to respond – listen so that you’ll understand them.
2. Be grateful.
Life is full of amazing blessings, show some appreciation for it!
3. Stop comparing.
If you compare yourself with others, you will become vain or bitter, for always there will be greater or lesser persons than yourself.
4. Let go.
Let go of whatever grudges or pains that you have so that you’ll feel free.
5. Make space for others.
Other people need our time, our patience and our help. Let’s make space for them in our lives.
6. Slow down.
Life is not a sprint, but a marathon. You can slow it down a notch to appreciate the view.
7. Admire small miracles.
Being happy in life is not usually due to great, amazing things, but because of small miracles that have an incredible impact in our lives.
8. Write it down.
Recording your thoughts and your experiences is not only therapeutic, it can also reveal something about yourself!
9. Act like a tourist.
Just because you’re used to a particular place, doesn’t mean there are no new places to explore.
10. Be extraordinary.
You don’t have to do extraordinary things. You simply need to do ordinary things quite extraordinarily.
