Motivation for Monday: Extraordinary You

10 things that extraordinary people do.

If you want to be extraordinary you need to live an extraordinary existence.  God wants this for you.  You were called to be the extraordinary you.

I have spoke to my readers time and time again about how special you are because God has made you for a purpose and a reason.  You have something in you that no one else possess.  You have your individual God essence.

Now this is something that the more religious would write off as new age spiritual non-sense.  But like I said before in past posts,  God will claim back everything that is his.  He will put his name on it because all things were created by him.  What does this mean?  It means that although people are ignorant of his divine plan and his unique design of you,  his word is true.  You are a unique creation of the everlasting God.  Everyone is.  Therefore each and everyone of us holds truth that God wants to share with the world.

Why do I mention this?  Because some would say that I am going out into the world and collecting the things that I want to hear about success. SMH.  This is not true because above everything else I desire a relationship with my Lord.  It is God who has taught me the right way to go, and it is the holy spirit that guides me in truth.

Now, in order to highlight your gifts and talents for the building up of Christ's body, you must grow in the Lord.  You must consistently develop your relationship to get to know who he is.  When you know who he is, he will tell you more about who you are.

Another thing that you have to do is motivate your self to feel good about any situation you are in.  The place that you find yourself today is the place you need to grow out of.  I don't care if you think you are at a good place or not.  You need to be made aware that you should always be growing!

This is why I have linked the above article to you.  Are you aware of what Extraordinary people do?  God made me aware and so I live everyday by doing the things that the bible tells me to do.  The above article breaks it down into 10 things that I feel are very good points.

Here is your motivation for this Monday:

Don't forget the most important thing . . .

Always read your bible and develop your relationship with the Lord.  Spend time with God and he will look out for you!  Why?  Because you were made to be an extraordinary person!!

I don't want people to think that they can just go around and get all kinds of motivation for their life to be successful and not include God.  No.  You should gather the information in order to get a mind shift in understanding.  Look at extraordinary people and study their habits, their commitment level, their character, and their work ethic.  We must contribute these same attributes in our pursuit of the Lord.

You need to understand that people are not successful just because they sit around and think positively.  People don't become successful by staying in their comfort zone.  Successful people don't wait for things to happen for them, instead they go out and make it happen.  Therefore, if you want to be successful in developing your relationship with the Lord you need to take the necessary steps to make it happen.

"But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you."

Matthew 6:33

We all have different definitions of success. So I think that it will be safe to say, strive to be who God has made you to be. Use your gifts and your talents to become an Extraordinary person.

I want to refer you to another great resource. I used to watch Evan Carmichael's- 10 Rules for Success. It is a YouTube channel that picks the brains of successful people and tries to pin point the top 10 advice ideas of a particular extraordinary person. Evan used to have the 10 rules of success of Jesus up, but it must have been taken down because I can't find it. However, I did find the "10 skills that are hard to learn, but will pay off forever." These are good skills to learn about, if you want to work towards being an extraordinary person. If you are familiar with my blog then you may have heard these before:

1- Get Good at Public speaking

2- Be Honest About Where You Are

3- Have Confidence

4- Be a Good Listener/ be the last to speak

5- Manage your Time

6- Stop Winning/ Stop complaining

7- Live in the Moment

8- Be Consistent

9- Get Enough Sleep

10-Have Empathy

These are things that Jesus did, I'm just saying!

Stay motivated.  Live to be that "Extraordinary You" that God has made you to be.
