How to Become Your ‘Extraordinary Self’

If you didn’t read my part 1 about being ‘all-in’, it’s a must.

But moving on … One of the most incredible things I learned last weekend was during Todd Durkin’s speech about ‘Extraordinary Self’.

Are you living a life worth telling a story about? Are you the passenger or the driver? What moves your soul? What are you making the theme of your year?

If you’re like me, you’re probably feeling a bit overwhelmed by all of these larger than life questions. But post-speech I realized, while these topics are hard to address, they are absolutely essential in figuring out what you want out of life.

And please, please, please do not think I have it together and know all of the answers to these questions.

Because honestly, I think I am the most confused about my future than ever right now. But, regardless of where I am or the situation you are in, I believe it’s valuable to answer some of these Q’s  or at the very least dig a bit deeper into discovering what really makes you tick and wake up everyday.

Durkin stated, “He who has not dreamed and not taken great action, has not really lived.”

While it can be terrifying to unveil these parts of yourself, I think it’s vital. So start here. Begin with these 5 assignments. And little by little — while being patient with yourself — you may just find what makes you not just tick, but flutter uncontrollably with a palpable passion. 

1. Put your dreams down on paper.
2. Be disciplined about your best practices.
3. Lead a balanced life.
4. Surround yourself with empowering and inspirational and supportive people.
5. Unveil your innermost passion  and act on it.
