How Bad Do You Want It?

on

How bad do you want what you want most in life? What are you willing to give up to get that thing?  Who doesn’t like adventure,and that sense of exceptionality in life? I do and really desire the extraordinary in my life in totality.

Exceptional-living

I believe you also desire this kind of life too, right? well, guess what ?If you want it so bad,you got to be willing to do everything it takes as long as it agrees with the principles of life. It is not enough to read all the books in the world,I tell you millions of self help,motivational books are been released daily all across the globe.

I am ardent vivacious reader, in the course of my journey in reading and studying about purposeful living,I have discovered that it is not only in reading the books,you must also have the discipline to stick to the principles by application!

one of the basic foundation of an exceptional,extraordinary life id to settle within you,that you will not be anyone else but YOU.  You have to be a little rebel,not following the crowd. I have found out that the crowd pays attention to validation and approval,it is rare to get that at the beginning of your journey to the exceptional life. BE YOU.

You must be ready to go on in the face of disapproval and lack of acceptance from people. Check through all history,Pioneers don’t become slaves to other people’s acceptance,validation and approval.

Most of the time we believe others  are watching every step we take,and when they find out we are making mistakes,then it seem that’s the end of life. For you to live exceptional life, you have no business worrying about what others think.

Secondly,There is a school of thought that if you don’t try at anything you can’t fail!  Well that’s FAILURE OF THE HIGHEST ORDER!

Doing absolutely nothing with your life is total failure. Planning is an essential part of living the extraordinary life. There will be obstacles on your way to that kind of life but it all part of the learning process. You must always be ready to face the obstacles,and that my friend will require some kind of strategic plans.

It is easy to live  the average life-Not setting goals,not making plans. Sometimes going with the flow can be inevitable,it should not be an excuse for living life without Focus and direction which comes as a result of careful calculated planning.

The third factor to living the extraordinary life is building self control. Today’s world is filled with traps which sucks up our precious time,causing us to procrastinate, making us to be lazy, wanting the easy way out.Self control is the game changing skill to develop in this time demanding age that we are. If you and I must live that exceptional life, we have to be ready to say No! to easy way street,and compromise boulevards to reach the optimum peak. 

Reminds of the Story of the great leader in the world,Jesus Christ. The whole episode with the devil after his 40 days consecration and preparation for his grand assignment. Matt 4:1-11. Clearly shows that life sometimes presents us with easy way out,in order to distracts us from attaining the best from life itself.

So my question again is,How much are you willing to give up to get the extra,out of the ordinary?

EXTRAORDINARY

How bad do you want it?

To your exceptional living,

OBA.

  2. Excellent post about wanting the extraordinary life. I believe what is the most significant for me is how these three work together when distracting us. Lack of validation and approval can cause us to be our own worst enemy. thank you for these reminders. I really needed them today.
