Life Coach

Extraordinary people think big while ordinary people think small. One of the main differences is that extraordinary people always think big while normal people always think small. ... There are many reasons, one is that when you think big, your thinking will excite you and that makes you want to go out and achieve it.

The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is that little extra. -Jimmy Johnson

This quote from Jimmy Johnson jumped out at me. Energized me. Wow! So simple. So powerful. For me, it was a sign from the Universe to reflect and ponder.

I’m a life coach and love this kind of stuff.

Is it possible for every one of us to be extraordinary? To each live an extraordinary life? To each do extraordinary things?

We can all do extraordinary things. 
We can all choose to step away from the ordinary path that our culture promotes and step into an extraordinary life.

My invitation to you is to begin living every moment as though you are miraculous and deserve to live an extraordinary life. Fake it if you must and keep faking it until it’s real to you. The gift you will be giving yourself is a lifelong journey of discovery, one that is infinite and infinitely rewarding. Begin the journey. Today. This moment. Now. -Robert White

It is a choice

The ordinary are here to fit into the world; the extraordinary are here to create their own worlds. -Matshona Dhliwayo

We decide to.

An extraordinary life is a choice to follow our own values, our own intuition, our own inner wisdom, our own definition of success.

What are the keys to unlock the extraordinary life inside us?

Know and live your values

To live an extraordinary life, you must resist an ordinary approach. -Frank McKinney

What are your values? What matters to you? What is important to you in this life?

We simply make decisions and take action in accordance with our values.

Using our values as guidance is very simple, very empowering, very freeing.

Step out of stability/comfort/knowing into learning/growing/not-knowing-yet

We all start at the beginning.

We don’t know how to do the thing we dream of.

We start by learning, growing, practicing.

We take a class, join a club, join a group that is doing the things we want. We surround ourselves with role models, mentors, coaches, teachers, more experienced people and we ask them questions and learn from them.

  • This is the fun part! Spend time learning what you are really interested in.
  • Be curious. Live curious. Be in beginners mind. It is okay to not know how. Start. Learn.
  • Get clear about your dreams, say yes to them, know that you deserve them
  • People do not decide to become extraordinary. They decide to accomplish extraordinary things. -Edmund Hillary
  • What are your dreams? Have you said Yes to yours, yet?
  • Yes I will. Yes I am. Yes.
  • Decide to have it. Just decide. Then start.

Follow only your definition of success

Something extraordinary happens when you dramatically increase the focus, drive, and intention you bring to your life, work and relationships. -Brendon Burchard

It is very empowering to follow our own definition of success.

It is very empowering to step out of the ordinary way of things in the world and follow our own way.

Each of us has access to extraordinary by following our definition of success, by following our curiosity, our adventure, our energy, our excitement, our interests, our creativity, our intuition.

We simply listen to and follow our own inner wisdom.

Eliminate all the stuff that doesn’t matter to you make room for what does matter to you

Eliminate and say No to all the people, projects, tasks, groups, friends, family, work that does not serve you and your dreams. Say No to the ordinary stuff that doesn’t matter to you.

Take action

We have one precious life: do something extraordinary today, even if it’s tiny. A pebble starts the avalanche. -K.A. Laity

The magic doesn’t happen until we take action, take a step.

We manifest an extraordinary experience and life by taking action towards it, doing it, being it.

Look for the opportunities (they are everywhere) and say Yes to them

Are you looking for the opportunities? The Universe is sending you opportunities all the time, every day, every where.

Start to look. Make it playful.

Do what inspires you

Life itself is so extraordinary and unique that the only thing keeping people ordinary is themselves. -Brandon Turner

We are all meant to live our inspired life. That is our purpose.

What inspires you? Do it. Start.

Celebrate the milestones on the journey, enjoy the journey

Be grateful that you are manifesting the path you really want.

Pause and celebrate your milestones, how far you’ve come, a successful step, your strengths, something that felt joyful, something that energized you, something that made you smile or laugh, ah-ha’s, learning.

Ordinary people believe only in the possible. 
Extraordinary people visualize not what is possible or probable, but rather what is impossible. 
And by visualizing the impossible, they begin to see it as possible. -Cherie Carter-Scott

I say

It’s not that people who do great things are heroically great people and the rest of us shmoes are the gray residue stuck at the bottom of the ordinary barrel.

It’s just that they are willing to go a few steps further than the rest of us, turning ordinary effort into extraordinary effort, ordinary resolve into extraordinary resolve and ordinary persistence into extraordinary persistence. This, of course, often produces extraordinary results.


As a high school teacher, I see this all the time. Think about it: What’s the difference between an “A” student and a “B” student? The answer is ten percent. At most! The difference can be as small as a mere 1-2 percent. A few more completed homework assignments and a few more minutes studying for a test or two!

It’s the little extra the “A” students are willing to devote to their goals that differentiates them from “B” students. And “B” from “C” students, for that matter.


It’s unsurprisingly the same with the rest of life. It’s the extra time with your kids, the notes to your spouse, a few extra details in your reports that makes the difference between okay and good, and between good and amazing.

Showing up a few minutes early is no big deal. But doing it consistently, day in and day out, matters. Bosses notice. They also note the attitude and work-ethic it suggests. Working harder than the next employee or entrepreneur may not make the headlines, but it may make a consistently better impression to customers.


The difference between the successful and those who struggle to “make it” in any aspect of life is often just a few more steps taken consistently, over time. The difference is rarely monumental in scope and size, at least at the beginning. But over time, a few degrees more or less can make a continent of difference.

Your best

Be the best version of you 

I decided to stop trying to be whatever everyone else thought I should be.
I learned a long time ago that not everyone would like me or understand me..
And I’m good with that.

I don’t have to dim someone else’s light to make mine shine brighter.
I think big and dream bigger, so there’s people who will always look down on me because I’m not like them.
Here’s a hint: I like me just the way I am and I’m not changing to make anyone else happy.
I’m done to trying to please everyone else, because all that ever did was make me unhappy.
I’m leaving those small people with small minds and smaller ideas in my past,
I’m not letting anyone or anything keep me down.

Forget the boxes they tried to fit around me and the labels that never really worked,
I’m more than a size, a stereotype or a number on the scale.
I’ve got a lot of love to give and a beautiful soul to share with the people I care about.
I keep my circle small and my heart guarded- I’m not going back to those places that tore me down before.
I’ve burned those bridges that led me to the wrong places with the wrong people long ago.

This is a new day and a new me:
I’m living with purpose and loving with passion.
The ones who love me will always be right beside me, cheering me on and sharing the light.
You can keep your lukewarm desire and your mediocre love,
I don’t believe in doing anything halfway.

If you can’t give me your respect, love and passion the way I deserve, then that’s your choice.
I’ve got one life, and I’m not settling for anything less than the best in my dreams, my friends and most of all, my partner.
Some may say I’ve got an attitude and they’re’s strong.

I know what I want and who I am, and I’ll accept nothing less than the very best from the people in my life.
So, if you want to try to define me by all the other people you’ve ever known, let me stop you right there.
You’ve never met someone like me and you never will again.
So, if you want to love me on my terms with the respect and passion that I expect, then take my hand and let’s chase some adventure.
If you think I’m like the others and I fit into smaller boxes of lesser people,

Try again.
You can’t cage my strong spirit and fiery heart, so don’t even try to dull my shine.
I’ve got dreams to catch and love to share, so if you can’t handle my truth,
Perhaps you should look elsewhere.
It’s my time to soar and spread my wings, and I’m excited about my future.
The question is, can you accept me just the way I am?
