Extraordinarily different from me…

20 09 2008

One of my greatest pleasures in life is talking to people about how to live extraordinary lives.  I love to help them dig deep down and really come alive with the things they truly love to do.  One thing that comes up all the time is just how different our extraordinary lives are.

We all have different beliefs about what makes our lives extrordinary.  For some it may be money, for others spending all day with children. I’ve known a few dare devils in my life who couldn’t live without that adrenaline rush.  This is also evident when you think about third world countries.  Some of the people are truly happy!  They may only need a new water pump to make their lives great.

How cool is this that we all can live such different lives and yet all live extraordinarily. I read today in someone else blog such a great reason for this.  The bottom line to living an extraordinary life is having total personal integrity.  Think about this.  When you are in alignment with your heart, your soul, and your mind you are living with integrity.  The best thing we can do is to be honest with ourselves, keep promises made, and really give ourselves the freedom to live the way we know we should.

I love personal integrity.  Taming our thoughts and our mind that would have us undermine what we know to be true is a work always in progress.  And yet, personal development leading to full integrity is such a fabulous journey.  We become more confident individuals ready to take on new challenges.  Living an extraordinary life means we always get to improve our capacities in what we see fit.  In essence we are not stuck in the mundane, ordinary way of life.

There is such a huge world out there!  Live it extraordinary…by whatever means you decide!
