In a world where there are many people that don’t have great ambitions and aspirations, it is very hard to get correct advice from the people that you admire, let a long speak to them in person, not only that but even your own family and friends may give you the wrong advice.. When you are a person that aspires to be something extraordinary in life, it can feel like you are a lonely piece of grass in huge land of grass. What makes it even harder is that you have to be quite careful on who you tell your goals and ambitions to.
Many times people would try to put you down by saying negative things to you. Sometimes even your so called “friends” can tell you that they can support you and then without notice they stab your back. You really have to truly know who the person is before you can become friends with him/her. It makes no sense and is also quite stupid if you see a person for the first time and you call him/her a friend.
A platonic relationship has to occur first. It sounds cliche, but this is very important, especially if you want to become uber successful. As time goes by you can feel overwhelmingly lonely. I have experienced this myself as well. The thing is you shouldn’t let that stop you from being the extraordinary person you are looking to become. With that being said, lets get started
1. Make friends with likeminded people
This is one of the most important advice there is on how to become from ordinary to extraordinary, because you would inevitably need to make friends with people of the same mind set as you. Thats why I wrote 3 paragraphs about making friends and meeting people with like minds. This advice that I am giving here is actually similar to the ” you are the average of the five people you hang out with”. There are many ways tho meet like-minded people, through social networks like Instagram, Facebook, Linkedln. You could also go to libraries and go to self-improvement section of them and you can find those kind of people there.
2. See what most people are doing and do the opposite
Now I am not saying you have to do EVERYTHING differently that most people do. What I mean by this is that I want you to see the unproductive things that most people put their energy to, and then I want you to put most (not all) of your energy into doing productive things. For example: If most people are partying, go and read. If most people don’t free their mind, meditate. Get the trend here? Good! Also the reason why I said “most” and instead not saying all is because we all need occasional fun at times. If we balance productivity with some fun, you would be able to recharge our minds for the next time you would be productive.
3. Drown yourself in success mindset things
This i actually more of the conditioning aspect of your brain. This could actually be one of (if not the fastest) ways to become success oriented. The reason for this..is, like I said earlier, the conditioning of the brain. It is a proven fact that if you keep submerging your brain into a lie that you made up, there would come a time when you would actually believe it. Although the topic is not the same, the concept and/or analogy is still the same.
4. Read motivational quotes from time to time
Although this seems like it stems from some corny motivational article, reading inspirational quotes from time to time can be a great start to putting your feet in the vast sea of self- improvement. These quotes are extremely effective if you read them first thing in the morning. It is known that if you start your day positive, the rest of your day is going to be positive. Obviously if you read quotes and don’t take them seriously and/or take action, nothing is going to happen. So get moving!:)
5. Set yourself some goals and work for them
This is BY FAR the most important tip here, taking action is one of the the big first moves you are going to inevitably take if you want to be massively successful.All of us have heard go this saying “knowledge is power”. I think they should of tweaked it a bit like this:”knowledge is potential power”. You can read all the self-improvement books in the world, take courses, even read my website. The bottom line is, if and IF you don’t take action, nothing matters.
So there you have it, the tips that you can use on how to become from ordinary to extraordinary. These tips, if used properly would make you uber successful if you start implementing them as much and as well as often as you can. If order to have these tips work for you, is to be…one word…PERSISTENCE. The more time you invest into some thing, the more easier and comfortable you become with doing these things. The journey of a thousand miles begins with a singe step. Get going! =)
