How to move from Ordinary to Extraordinary

Are you looking for something exciting to do? Do you feel like shredding down your usual, common life and move on to something remarkable? Well, be happy, you have your problem solved. Having a life you pictured for yourself can be difficult, but it is not impossible. Let’s take a look at the factors that will help you upskill your life-

Convince yourself

The first thing you need to do is convince yourself. Convince and make yourself realize that you deserve to be extraordinary. Even when many people succeed in believing in themselves, most of them fail in convincing themselves to act according to their decisions. Thus it is very important to learn to convince yourself. Train your mind to adapt to all situations. Train your mind to treat success and failure without getting carried away. Keep the key to your mind in your hands.

Break down your goals

It is very important to have goals in your life. A goal is anything you wish to achieve. It could be anything from reading a book to starting a store. A goal can be huge or it can be small. There are goals you wish to achieve in the long run and there are goals you wish to achieve immediately. What is crucial is to learn to break down your goals. So what does it mean to break down your goal? Each of your goals is comprised of smaller goals. The key is to find the smaller goals and put them together.

Let us take an example here; suppose your goal is to write a book,

  • If you were to complete the book in one year, that will be your goal.
  • To achieve that, you need to break it down into smaller goals. Like,
  • Writing 1 chapter in a month, 14 pages a week, 2 pages a day.

Likewise, you can break down each of your goals into smaller goals like monthly goals, weekly goals and daily goals.

Enjoy the journey

The most essential factor to keep in mind is to enjoy your endeavors. Remember that, whatever you are doing, you are doing it for yourself. There is no point in working hard unless you enjoy it. Do you know what happens when you read a book just to finish it? You will finish it alright, but you will learn nothing. In the same way, if you run after your goals with the aim to achieve them, the only thing you do is achieve it but you will never get to live it. So make sure that you live in the moment and savor every step of your journey.

Learn from setbacks

No one is perfect. It is only natural to make mistakes. But what is challenging is to learn from the mistakes and rise again. It is okay even if you fail, what is crucial is to keep going. Find where you went wrong, rectify it and try harder. There is no success without hard work. And hard work always pays off, so make sure that you learn from your mistakes rather than giving up. It is very easy to give up but hardest to hold on. Never let your failures dim your focus. Remember that, failures are the signs of you trying. If you don’t try, you don’t fail. And if you don’t fail, you don’t learn. Celebrate your success and learn from your mistakes.

Everyone is born with unique talents and skills. Be courageous enough to take action. Convince yourself to work hard for what you want. Be a stronger person than you are right now and enjoy your moments both light and dark, for there is no light without the dark, is there?
