Extraordinary lives don’t just happen. Elite athletes and movie stars don’t wake up one day having achieved peak success. They’ve made a powerful commitment to take their lives from ordinary to extraordinary. They understand that the true key to success isn’t the family you’re born into or how much money you have. The ability to take ordinary to extraordinary comes from within.
It is in moments of decision that your destiny is shaped. In order to create change, you must unlock the right tools to become an unstoppable force. With these techniques, your life will never be the same again.
1. RAISE YOUR STANDARDS
To take ordinary to extraordinary, you must raise your standards. Tony says, “We all get what we tolerate, in ourselves and other people. When you’re no longer willing to tolerate something, that’s when your life changes.” The standards you set for yourself are the difference between ordinary results and extraordinary outcomes. You shift your life forever the moment you raise your standards – so, right now, consciously decide there is a higher standard for you.
2. TURN YOUR “SHOULDS” INTO “MUSTS”
As Tony says, “The difference between ‘must’ and ‘should’ is the life you want and the life you have.” We don’t get what we want. We get what we have to have. When something is a must, you find a way. How do you do this? You must uncover your true purpose in life. Discover what you really want. Then relate every goal back to that purpose. Imagine yourself old and gray – what will you regret about your life? Those are your musts. Those are your inspirations to achieve greatness.
3. FACE YOUR FEARS
If you want to take the island, burn the boats. When there’s no way out, we’re forced to face our fears. It creates a hunger that makes us unstoppable. What fears do you need to face? Conquer your fear of failure by developing inner strength. Conquer your fear of inadequacy by replacing limiting beliefs with empowering ones. And conquer your fear of being unlovable by being vulnerable in your relationships. Only the bold will be able to go from ordinary to extraordinary.
4. INVEST IN YOURSELF
It’s often said that the greatest investment you can make is the one in yourself. If you’re not growing, you’re dying, and no one knows this better than those who have taken their lives from ordinary to extraordinary. Feeding your mind with new ideas, learning new skills and constantly improving on your weaknesses puts you in a growth mindset that will take you to the heights of success.
5. GO BEYOND THE BARE MINIMUM
There’s a reason that the word “extraordinary” is just “ordinary” with “extra” tacked onto it. To take your life to the next level, you need to go above and beyond – do what is necessary, and then do something extra. Get unreasonable. What’s unrealistic to average people is just unreasonable to extraordinary people. So be extraordinary, get unreasonable and achieve something magnificent.
