Extraordinary Comes From The Ordinary

I don’t know many people that want to be ordinary their whole lives. Most of us feel a calling to be extraordinary. The question is how?

Do ordinary things.

Extraordinary comes from ordinary - bikini or bust

Extraordinary doesn’t come from a magic wand, an accident, or falling into something. It comes from choosing to do a select few ordinary things over and over and over again until you are extraordinary.

Earlier this week, I ran into someone that I hadn’t seen in nearly 14 years and 8 dress sizes.

Uh…you are quite different, you don’t even look the same. Its extraordinary.

Actually, its rather ordinary. Heck, even downright boring!

I workout, eat clean, and lift heavy weights.


Doing ordinary things with consistency and excellence puts you on the path to extraordinary.

  • Want to make a difference?
  • Want to lose weight?
  • Want to have your dream job?
  • Want to feed the hungry?
  • Want to be an amazing parent?
  • Want to like who you are?
  • Want to have a fulfilling relationship?

Don’t wait for the mythical, far off extraordinary to arrive; because it never will.

Do what is in front of you. Do it now. Do it well.

What ordinary thing are you starting with?
