What is An Extraordinary Life?
Extraordinary Life. Two simple words that beg a lot of complex questions. The most obvious one is: So if there’s such a thing as an “extraordinary life,” then there must also be such a thing as an ordinary life. We may typically say we have ordinary days (e.g., I wake up, eat, go to work, go home, eat, watch TV, sleep; do it again), ordinary cars (the ubiquitous 4-door sedan or mini-van), ordinary tasks (laundry, pay bills, take a shower), ordinary homes (2 or 3-bedroom house, 2-car garage in an “ordinary” suburban neighborhood).

An extraordinary life, on the other hand, is one you design. You live a life that you want to live, a life that’s exciting and invigorating. You don’t have to live a life of extraordinary wealth, though there’s nothing wrong with that. But you are in charge of your life. You’re doing what you want to do, you’re being paid for doing something you’d be doing anyway, and you’re genuinely happy. To me, the best definition of an extraordinary life is a happy life.

Have you ever noticed how some people seem to get ahead in life easily and effortlessly no matter what is going on around them?

Khalil Gibran says, “Your living is determined not so much by what life brings to you as by the attitude you bring to life; not so much by what happens to you as by the way, your mind looks at what happens.” The key to success isn’t complex.
