An Extraordinary Change

I see more and more of a change occurring within myself each day that I implement the Miracle Morning routine.  I believe in myself more than I ever have before, and I don’t care much about what other people think of me.  The word “can’t” has pretty much disappeared from my vocabulary, and I refuse to spend any of my time complaining about anything.  My goals have increased substantially, and I have committed my life to achieving my purpose and getting done what I was put here to do.

I understand that my calling in life is to write.  My original writing goal was simply to write more.  It was a simple, primal goal, but it produced the desired effect.  I started writing more.

However, with the passage of time, I found that it was time to produce a more specific goal.  I started writing a book, which is now two-thirds complete.  Being so near to the completion of my first book, I have started coming up with ways of expanding it into other mediums.  Publishing is the first step, but I have already started gearing myself up to produce a screenplay, pilot, comic book, and animated series.  I take this calling very seriously.

I see myself as unstoppable, as a primal force of nature that gives no apologies or begs forgiveness for what I have become.  I have begun to realize that this life is a gift, that it is ours to mold and shape as we please and that we alone have the power to create our success.  I refuse to be a leaf blowing in the wind of fate and circumstance; I instead pledge to do and be all that I was put on this earth to be.

I understand that there will be naysayers.  I understand that there will be those who just don’t get it and are intimidated by my drive.  I understand that there are those who will claim to mean well as they attack my dreams and attempt to downplay my confidence with negativity and a “can’t do” attitude.

I also understand that I don’t have to give my precious time to such people.  I know that any relationship that is detrimental to my happiness is a relationship that must cease.  Our life relationships should complement our lives, not complicate it.

I see that success in this life is something that we must strive for, something that we must achieve for ourselves.  Success is not handed to us.  We must be willing to put in the time and the work to get what it is we want and to make our lives what we want it to be.  We must be uncompromising, unreasonable, and determined.

Becoming extraordinary starts with a commitment and a call to action.  Being extraordinary requires that we do more than what is expected of us and more than we have ever done before.  Being extraordinary is not so much what you do, but rather the frame of mind that pushes you to do the things that will bring about an extraordinary life.

Choose today to be the day that you become extraordinary.
