This blog is about helping both you and I become extraordinary. I believe this is possible, if we want it badly enough to open our minds to new ways of doing things and new beliefs.
I am writing this blog today from Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. I have met some world travelers on this trip and they appear like ordinary people. However, when you speak to them and listen to the various lands they have visited, you soon realize they are anything but ordinary.
Traveling to other countries to see other cultures is something that I believe most of us can do, if we really want to do it.
RESULTS OF LAST WEEK’S POLL
I had no idea how last week’s poll was going to turn out. Nelson Mandela and “I Can’t Decide” were the top two choices selected. I can certainly understand why “I Can’t Decide” was selected, since the folks named were extraordinary in such different ways. As for Nelson Mandela, to me here was a person who suffered so much for so long, and yet forgave those that did him wrong to create a better society. What an extraordinary example he is to everyone.
THIS WEEK’S JOKE
Q: What has two arms, two legs, and a weight more or less proportional to its height?
A: Absolutely nothing.
WEEK 7: SELF-WORTH — BE YOUR OWN PERSON
If you think someone is holding you back from being an extraordinary person, you are definitely correct. The person who is holding you back is yourself.
How do you expect anyone to believe in you, if you don’t believe in yourself first.
