Your Days Define Your Life


Your days are your life in miniature. As you live your hours, so you create your years. As you live your days, so you craft your life. What you do today is actually creating your future. The words you speak, the thoughts you think, the food you eat and the actions you take are defining your destiny – shaping who you are becoming and what your life will stand for. Small choices lead to giant consequences – over time. There is no such thing as an unimportant day.


Each one of us is called to greatness. Everyone of us can carve their future to greatness. Each one of us has an exquisite power within us. Each one of us can have a significant impact on the world around us – if we so choose. But for this power that resides internally to grow, we need to use it. And the more you exercise it, the stronger it gets. The more this power gets tapped, the more confident you become. Henry David Thoreau related to this point well when he wrote: “I know of no more encouraging fact than the unquestionable ability of a human being to elevate their life by conscious endeavor.” And advertising guru Donny Deutsch added a more current spin on the idea when he wrote in his book Often Wrong, Never in Doubt:                     “For every person with the stuff, the one out of a hundred who goes to a rarefied place is the one who says, ‘why not me?’ and goes for it.” 

The best among us are not more gifted than the rest. They just take little incremental steps each day and every day without an exception as they march toward their biggest life. And the days slip into weeks, the weeks into months and before they know it, they arrive at a place called Extraordinary.  

Most of us after our post graduation / management studies stop reading a book giving an excuse that we do not have time at our disposal. The extraordinary individual is an individual also does not have time but takes out time to read something good each day. He / she commits to read an excellent book in the form of management books / business books / self help books each week and with the result he completes reading 50 books in a year. With the same zeal and enthusiasm, he forges ahead reading an excellent book every week for 10 years and thus completes reading 500 books. Reading a book by someone you like / respect / adore allows some of their brilliance to rub off on you. With the company of books for 10 years, his mind gets stretched and his thought process will never be the same. Thus, when he speaks on subjects like leadership, relationships, business, philosophy, wellness, spirituality the other individual who hears him terms him as EXTRAORDINARY. BUT THE INDIVIDUAL WHO HAS TREDGED THE PATH TO EXTRAORDINARY KNOWS THAT HE WAS NEVER EXTRAORDINARY BUT AN ORDINARY INDIVIDUAL WHO HAS REGULARLY AND INCREMENTALLY PUT EXTRA EFFORTS DAILY AND REGULARLY TO BECOME EXTRAORDINARY.
