extraordinary-life

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.

no-plan-b

Work like there’s no plan B. Adapt, Adjust and continue your journey. Plan B could be a distraction and become your excuse.

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.

Life Is…

“Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.
Life is beauty, admire it.
Life is bliss, taste it.
Life is a dream, realize it.

Life is a challenge, meet it.
Life is a duty, complete it.
Life a game, play it.
Life is a promise, fulfill it.

Life is sorrow, overcome it.
Life is a song, sing it.
Life is a struggle, accept it.
Life is a tragedy, confront it.

Life is an adventure, dare it.
Life is luck, make it.
Life is too precious, do not destroy it.
Life is life, fight for it.”

How Big Can You Dream?

“Only as high as I reach can I grow, only as far as I seek I can go, only as deep as I look can I see, only as much as I dream can I be.” ~ Karen Ravn.

So, what if you remove all the preconceptions you may have of your abilities and reach for new horizons?  What if for one day only, you let it all hang out?  How far would you reach?  Where would you go?  What would you do?

Today is a great day to do just that!  How big will you dream today?

Explore. Dream. Discover

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by those that you did do.  So throw off the bowlines.  Sail away from the safe harbor.  Catch the trail winds in your sails.  Explore.  Dream.  Discover.” ~ Mark Twain

We all have disappointments, setbacks, obstacles and everyday ordinary nuisances that interfere with our plans, wishes and desires.  I am no different from anyone else, however I can honestly say that where I stand today I am extremely satisfied with where I am this point in my life.

I have always been one to stick my neck out, to go out on a limb, to take a chance, to see what’s on the other side of the door.  More often than not, things have not turned out the way I had planned.  But the rewards of those few times that did work out for me are so big and powerful that the disappointments pale in comparison.

Some five years ago, I took a chance of historic proportions.  And it has paid unimaginable rewards.

After my 50th birthday, I found myself very content with my family life and my professional life.  It was for “me” that I wanted something different and what I ended up discovering would have been an impossibility just a few short years back.  Call it timing.  Call it fate.  Call it what you will.

A lot of you know where my passion lies today.  You know what drives me and motivates me.  A lot of you have followed my progress via my other blog.  So as not to be repetitive in my story, I will just link you here to that piece of my life.

So, please do as I did.  Go out and Explore.  Dream.  Discover.

Impossible Dreams

Don Quixote and Sancho Panza by Honoré Daumier

“And one man scorned and covered with scars still strove with his last ounce of courage, to reach the unreachable stars; and the world will be better for this…” ~ Don Quixote from Man of La Mancha

This is one of my all time favorites.  I have a poster in my home office with this same picture with this same quote.  Additionally, I have the song that carries the same title as this post on my mp3 player and when the going is getting rough, this is one of the songs I choose to play.

Miguel de Cervantes wrote the classic Don Quixote de la Mancha in two volumes in 1602 and 1612, pretty much as an autobiography.   It is still considered one of the best novels ever written.  I was in my early twenties when I first read the book.  Then the movie Man of La Mancha came out and it became one of my all time favorites, and to this day, I watch it over and over and over again.

For anyone who has ever issues  with courage, passion, dreams and fights and struggles I recommend you take the time to read the book or watch the movie.  It is one of the most inspirational stories ever told.
