Do extraordinary people do things differently or face different challenges than ordinary folks?
Do you consider yourself an ordinary human being or an extraordinary one? Most of the time the answer will emanate from your sense of self-worth or ego. I doubt if anyone really believes they are ordinary. One of the biggest reasons for this is the high sense of importance and exclusivity that is instilled in us at birth.
The other reason is that none of us wishes to get lost in a crowd. And so you need to stand out. And the easiest way to do that is to cultivate some extraordinary traits that lift you above the others. Ordinary people live and die. Extraordinary ones make a difference and live on through that difference. They set an example by the path they choose to tread, without even meaning to do so.
You do not have to do extraordinary things to be extraordinary; it is enough that you do ordinary things differently. It is enough that you live life by a set of values, without following the herd. And you have to follow the same set of rules for yourself as you do for others. Extraordinary people live the same life and face the same challenges as ordinary person do. But their response and set of values are different.
To me an extraordinary person is one who has a strong sense of what is right or wrong, and who chooses to stand by the right, no matter what the compulsions not to do so. The moment people compromise with morality, they become very, very ordinary for me. Ordinary people will witness an accident or a victim of violence and carry on, allowing themselves a myriad excuses about why they cannot get involved.
It is the extraordinary person who will step up and offer help or call up the cops or a helpline and ensure help reaches. While ordinary people sit back and count the reasons for not doing all they could have done, extraordinary people act upon their ideas. They are not afraid of losing; the only thing that matters to them is realising their dreams. They are not afraid of being wrong either, or of accepting mistakes and stepping back.
You cannot hope to be more than ordinary if you do not believe in yourself and your own strengths. Look at those around you. How are you, in any manner, different from the rest? Do you have any unique trait that others lean on you for? Have you cultivated a skill that benefits others? Or are you just part of the crowd — laughing, crying, criticizing, berating, eulogizing with the rest?
Think about it. It is the one with the halo of a quiet confidence and calm; a person who knows where he is headed and is confident and helpful too. Someone you can rely upon and who will not take you for a ride. Someone who embraces his ordinariness in an extraordinary manner.
An extraordinary person lives his life fully. The trick to leading an extraordinary life is to lead your simple, ordinary life and be open to experiencing the extraordinary you find within it.
Striving too hard to be different is not the way to stand out; rather it is the way to becoming an object of ridicule. Just live your life fully and by your rules; do not make compromises you do not believe in. Stand up for what is right and work with focus and sincerity. Dangerous trend: AAP s the race to the bottom in calling for local quotas in private jobs. Left, right and wrong: Savarkar, Golwalkar should be read in universities just as their intellectual polar opposites should be.
Four plus two minus: Quad summit shows India matters in an emerging world order. But the Af-Pak challenge remains. Who knows the asli truth about Kundra or Sood? Economic growth delivers justice, too. Interested in blogging for timesofindia.
