How to be extraordinary

Sometimes, you need to ask yourself these questions, Why do I work so hard? What is my drive? What is the reason behind the driving force to success?

The reason behind the driving force is your personal mission statement to be extra ordinary

A personal mission statement is something that excites you; that gives a higher meaning and purpose to your life.

You may have a noble cause for doing what you do or you may have a completely selfish reason, but being able to identify yourself as extraordinary is one of the most important things you can do on the path to success.

A study of the most influential people in your society and world at large will reveal the reasons behind their success and the personal mission statement that defines their being extraordinary.

For example, Oprah Winfrey’s mission is: “to be a teacher and to be known for inspiring her students to be more than they thought they could be.” This statement has led her to become a media mogul who and has helped millions of people around the world through her philanthropic efforts.

Also, philanthropist Folorunsho Alakija was a fashion designer and same goes for few of the self-acclaimed individuals in Nigeria.

Late Mother Teresa’s mission was: “to comfort the dying.” This led her to a life of helping people in any way she could through Catholicism. Same as T.Y Bello who focused more on photography and she is really making an impact in the world and winning awards.

So, do you know yours now?
Everyone comes into this world with a special mission to make an extraordinary difference. The moment you start thinking about your mission is your life’s greatest turning point to achieve more greatness.

Your mission often emerges from within yourself and you must be prudent in achieving it.

To figure out your calling, ask yourself these questions:

What do I really want to do with my life?

What moves me emotionally?

What am I passionate about?

As you answer these questions and start to define your mission, you have to imagine that you have no limitations in life.

When you think through these questions, imagine you have a magic wand that gets rid of any of those limitations in your thoughts.

Lastly, you need to be very clear what difference your mission is going to make if you want to make it a reality. It doesn’t have to be big yet, but it has to be accomplishable. Here are 3 steps to writing your mission statement:

1. “My mission is to [what you intend to do and for whom you intend to do it]”.

2. “I achieve my mission by [the activities you will engage in].”

3. I will know that I have achieved my mission when [the measures you will use to determine if you have achieved your mission].”

No wonder Brian Tracy said: “Your inner voice will ultimately guide you to say and do the right things at the right time”.
