Extraordinary is a journey, not a destination.
As I consider the years of practice, the accomplishments I realise that all that I did was
Extraordinary —Until it became common place and then ordinary
As we accomplish we go from not knowing how to — Extraordinary
To achieving it where Extraordinary becomes ordinary
Do we dwell here or go further
The Extraordinary journey is to never just accept the ordinary and stay in it
The Extraordinary journey demands that we go further
Once we could crawl but not walk — To walk was Extraordinary then ordinary.
Once we could walk but not yet run, to run was Extraordinary then ordinary
We accept these things as normal and to be enjoyed
But life without Extraordinary becomes ordinary.
Before I could fly to achieve it I believed was Extraordinary
Then I learned to fly and it became normal so what next?
Before I was a dentist to remove a tooth, pick up a drill, diagnose a problem was Extraordinary
Then it became common place, routine — I needed to strive for more, achieve more, learn more
Keep the Extraordinary going
Finding your passion, your purpose your direction and pursuing it is Extraordinary
To keep it Extraordinary is the constant challenge, resting on your laurels is ordinary.
So how do we explore our Extraordinary — we go out and do it
We wake with the intention of being extraordinary
Not that we have achieved it
Forgetting all that is past, stretch forward, really stretch for the upward call
The prize, the life of extraordinary — The Calling of which we are called
As have the greatest of athletes, businessmen, missionaries, artists — ever stretching for better
So what is an Extraordinary life for you
Only you can go after it.
Have a great 2021 — Be Extraordinary!
