"You see yourself as average, ordinary. And there is nothing ordinary about you, Rachel."
~Emily Griffin, Something Borrowed
Do you see yourself as average, ordinary, middle-of-the-pack? A lot of people see themselves that way and are perfectly content with it. Just always know that it is a belief, not a fact. You can shift from ordinary to extraordinary any time you choose.
You are extraordinary. It's right there beneath that ordinary facade. I'm not telling you anything you don't already know. You sense that there is something extraordinary within you and you are ready to unleash it in your life and, yet, you don't.
A big part of it is shifting your paradigms from those that support ordinariness to those that promote the extraordinary in you.
Here are 16 paradigm-shifting distinctions between ordinary mindsets and extraordinary ones. Keep these posted somewhere that you can see them during your day. When you catch yourself thinking ordinary, you can instantly change to extraordinary.
Let us all commit to extraordinary thinking today. Ordinary thinkers become extraordinary thinkers every day. Why not you? The hero you're waiting for is waiting for you in the mirror.
