The power to live an extraordinary life is not defined by anything other than your willingness and desire to step out of the ordinary. Be daring and develop a vision of what is on the other side. Step into the unknown and live an extraordinary life.

Thought for Today Monday, December 5, 2016

Everyone has goals, aspirations, plans and wants. Everyone is looking for something different, perhaps something better. Everyone believes that somewhere out there there’s something to be claimed. Everyone is looking for their own pot of gold.

Everyone sets a goal because they believe that reaching this goal is the key to something. Everyone believes that opportunity awaits if only they reach this goal. Everyone thinks this. Well, at least they should.

The Highest Ambition

“To do something, however small, to make others happier and better, is the highest ambition, the most elevating hope, which can inspire a human being”
~  John Lubbock

Ever stand in line at the grocery store and watch as other people interact with the cashier?  How about while you’re sitting at the restaurant, do you ever watch as to how others treat the server?

Not to long ago, I went to a nearby grocery store to pick up a couple of things we needed at the house.  I observed as the people in front of me treated with cashier with contempt and rudeness.  Nothing specific, just the way they spoke.

When it was my turn, the nice lady asked how I was doing.  With a great big grin and a happy undertone, I replied “Fantastic!  You?”  She did a double take and with a beautiful smile, she told me she was doing just fine.  “From here on out, I will call you Mr. Fantastic” she said.  And that she does.

When I left the store, I looked back and she was still smiling.  And oh yeah, the people who were standing behind me, they were smiling as well!

This is my goal.
