Surprise The World - Surprise Yourself
"Man is always more than he can know of himself; consequently, his accomplishments, time and again, will come as a surprise to him."
- Golo Mann
Day in and day out, we go about our lives performing many of the same tasks required of daily living. We become so used to it that everything we do seems ordinary.
The thing is, you are not ordinary.
You are an amazing creation that can do surprising things with your life.
The act of performing your job to the best of your ability is not ordinary. Anyone can just show up to a job. But you go beyond and put great skill and effort into making your work the best one can produce.
The act of having a committed relationship with another person. You take great care in nurturing and serving that connection. You do not simply take but you give so the relationship grows and strengthens.
You are not ordinary.
The act of raising children is huge and you understand it as such. You are creating and building a great life for them so that they are strong and ready for the world that lay before them.
The act of helping and serving others in the community. You understand that when you give, much is returned tenfold to you. Having a strong and vital community around you creates a better life for all.
So you see, you are not ordinary.
You have the ability within you to create great surprise in other people with what you can accomplish. That ability makes you more than ordinary.
Go out and surprise the world.
And stay inspired my friends!
