Sometimes we think that extraordinary lives are few and far between, hard to get, and reserved for only a special few. But the truth is that each one of us has the capacity to live an extraordinary life by living with intention and purpose.
Everything that you do in your life is optional. You get to choose it all. Your right to choose your life is unalterable and absolute. None of it is determined and none of it is required and we are choosing our life, every moment of every day, whether we recognize it or not.
In this episode of the podcast, I share five things that will help you use your agency to get the most out of your earth life experience and do every extraordinary thing you want to do while you are here.
Every moment of every day, we are choosing our lives. If our brain is left in charge, it’s going to create the safest, ordinary life possible. It will reiterate what we’ve done in the past over and over in order to continue to create what we know. It’s important to be aware of this happening so we can take charge of our own choices. We can live an extraordinary life instead.
An extraordinary life is what we choose to intentionally create, even when our brain tells us we’re wrong. It’s what happens when we learn new things, face our fears, and pursue our potential. Over the past few years, I’ve learned that I don’t want to settle for what my brain gives me on default. Now I choose the life I want to live on purpose.
1. Having the willingness to feel bad
2. Knowing it is a matter of choice
3. Making decisions in the present according to the you in the future
4. Seeing yourself as a problem solver
5. Allowing yourself to be delusional
Today, I’m sharing how to use these key components to create an extraordinary life, because we all have the capacity to create more meaningful ways of living, regardless of what our brains have to say.
