As Robert Louis Stevenson once said, “To become what we are capable of becoming is the only end in life.”
Once you begin to understand and realize what you are capable of, the whole world changes. Sure, we all want our life to matter but how can we seize this amazing opportunity, this one-of-a-kind lifetime, this once-in-history opportunity to be extraordinary? Let’s begin with the following question.
When was the last time you sat down and really thought about how you can design an extraordinary life for you and your family? It might be quite different than what you envisioned years ago. With life’s normal cycles, it probably is.
When I look at the lives of extraordinary people, I find that most had a way of saying no to the unimportant so they could say yes to the important, whatever that was in their lives. They passionately believe that wherever they are now, they can get better. I also found that the earlier in life that they began playing to their strengths, the more opportunity they had to develop and enjoy their unique abilities.
