What’s wrong with living an average life? Absolutely nothing. You can be happy, successful and create abundance and an amazing life just living day-to-day, slowly chipping away at the projects that matter to you.
Try this three-step exercise from super coach Michael Neill and watch how average can add up to extraordinary.
- Pick an area of your life you’d like to excel at such as being a Mom, writing or being a top sales person.
- Ask yourself: What would an average day in this area look like?
Being a Mom: Focusing 100% on your kids for 30 minutes before school and 30 minutes after school.
Writing: Spending 30-60 minutes per day writing.
Sales: Talking to 5 new prospects a day.
- Take a look at how consistently repeating your “average day” would look over 3-months, 6-months and a year. In 3-months you’d spend 90 hours with your kids giving you an opportunity to really nourish and get to know them. 6 months of writing, 45 minutes a day, 5 days a week would add up to about 137 hours enough time to write a short book or lots of blog posts! And talking to 5 prospects a day over the course of a year would add up to about 1250 people a year.
So go on be average. Pick three small things today that make a positive difference on a project you care about or a direction you’re moving in. Do your best, repeat for as long as you like and watch your life move forward in a huge way!
You can be extraordinary, superpowers not required.
