In this post, we’ll deep dive into the idea of living an extraordinary life, defining exactly what an extraordinary life is, what two skills you need to master to achieve it and more.
What Is An Extraordinary Life?
An extraordinary life is defined as life on your terms. What makes you happy will be different to what makes someone else happy and so an extraordinary life is different for everyone.
Living an extraordinary life is both a science and an art.
How To Live An Extraordinary Life
While an extraordinary life if different for everyone, there are two skills you must master: The Science Of Achievement & The Art Of Fulfilment. Below we’ll unpack each skill in more detail.
- The Science Of Achievement
The Science Of Achievement is the ability to take something you envision and make it real ― it is about the external world.
While the goals of each individual will be different, there are systematic principles that we can follow that will propel us towards those goals. Thus, fulfilment is an art.
For example, there is a science to physical health. There are certain universal laws that if you align with them, you’ll crease ease in the body but if you violate the laws then you’ll create dis-ease.
Similarly, there is a science to money. If you align with the laws, you’ll create abundance but if you violate the laws you’ll create financial stress.
- The Art Of Fulfilment
The Art Of Fulfilment is the ability to truly live a full life and sustain happiness ― it is about the internal world.
While the goal of fulfilment is the same for everyone, the strategy for achieving it is different for everyone because what makes someone feel fulfilled is different for everyone. Thus, fulfilment is an art.
However, there are three universal principles that everyone can follow to create fulfilment. They are: Gratitude, Giving & Growing. Gratitude allows you to see all the good in your life, giving allows you to make a difference in other people’s lives and growing allows you to give more.
The Art Of Fulfilment is an even more important skill to master because what good is mastering the external world if your internal world feels empty? Success without fulfilment is the ultimate failure.
We all want an extraordinary life ― a life on our terms. While it may look different for everyone, there are two skills you must master; The Science Of Achievement and The Art Of Fulfilment.
By mastering The Science Of Achievement and The Art Of Fulfilment., you have the tools necessary to sustain happiness that not only enriches your own life, but also enriches the lives of everyone around you.
