We Reveal How to Transform from Ordinary to Extraordinary
This week the Indiana based firm has been concentrating on identifying the difference between the ordinary and extraordinary, discussing four key steps to follow to achieve a fulfilling, extraordinary life.
Rizi Khan, President of the sales and marketing collective, outlined a number of ways to transform a life from lackluster and ordinary, to exciting and extraordinary. During a morning meeting, the business owner explained: “The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is just that little bit extra!”
The Five 7 Four president continued by defining ‘ordinary’ as “being in a job you don’t particularly enjoy and certainly don’t love, plodding along day to day without fulfilling any of your real dreams or goals.”
He went on to define an extraordinary life as “a life that has been hand-designed as the life you WANT to live, an invigorating life that you are in charge of and sees you doing exactly what you want to be doing. I personally believe the best definition of an extraordinary life is a happy life,” he said.
To motivate the Five 7 Four workforce to transform the ordinary into the extraordinary, Mr. Khan revealed the following four tips:
1. Do what you love
“By identifying what motivates you and emits genuine feelings of fulfillment, you can design an extraordinary life around these aspects.” states the CEO. Professionals should maximise the amount of time they are doing these activities and utilizing their best skills. This can mean committing time to being paid to do what they love. The ultimate goal is to earn a living doing something they are genuinely passionate about.
2. Understanding your true self
“Working in what excites you and what you are passionate about is a crucial aspect of living an extraordinary life.! Outlines Mr. Khan. By Dedicating some time to understanding themselves and observing what makes them genuinely excited to get out of bed in the morning, professionals will be able to focus their time and effort on the things in life that make them feel fulfilled.
3. Invest in learning
As firm advocates of personal development, Five 7 Four always reiterate the value of continued learning and education in both a personal and professional capacity. To live an extraordinary life the firm believes professionals must focus on improving themselves every single day. Setting challenges to educate themselves on a topic of interest or a relevant work subject is a great way of getting each week off to a positive, extraordinary start.
4. Work harder
Giving a little bit more and working that little bit harder is the difference between the average person and the super successful person; ordinary and extraordinary. To achieve more, professionals must give that little bit more and put the extra in extraordinary. Five 7 Four believes the best way to do this is not by simply doing what’s necessary, but in fact going beyond what is needed.
Following this motivational team meeting, Rizi Khan has seen a rise in workplace morale across all areas of the company and believes it is important to provide his workforce as many personal development tips and guidance as possible.
