“There are a million ways to be amazing, but you cannot achieve amazing unless you are involved in it.” -Michael J. Fite
Keep this in mind when you are find yourself wondering how to be amazing at something. There are a lot of things you can do to get there, but they all require you in order to make it happen. If you do not do anything to bring out the amazing qualities you have, you nor the world will have the opportunity to see what makes you amazing.
Everyone wants to amazing at something, but not everyone want to do what it takes to get there. The beauty of doing just a little extra is that you start discovering the little things that make you extraordinary and eventually that translate into you growing into something far beyond what you can imagine. That’s amazing!
As a parent, I want to be amazing at being a dad. For me, I did not want to stop at just being called “Bordeaux’s Daddy” just because I am one of her parents, I wanted to amazing at it because it was something that I craved for. What makes me amazing at being her dad:
- I take the time to teach her the basics, watch cartoons with her, and have silly moments with her.
- I find myself being a coach and her calming influence whenever she needs it the most.
- I just seem to know what she is thinking and feeling whenever she cannot express it in words.
None of these things may sound amazing to you, but to a kid, it can be what makes you the greatest parent in the world! For me to be able to step outside of myself and give my daughter what she needs and more through my actions, she allows for me to be amazing at being her daddy. I find that amazing!
You can be amazing at anything you choose to do as long as you are involved in doing a little extra to make it happen. Without you having an active role, you will never find what makes you amazing. Just take a few minutes to give an extra hug, study an extra lesson, stay late for mentoring, or whatever you normally do not do to see what becomes of it. You never know what you will learn from it about yourself until you try.Let’s remember that in order to be normal, just stay where you are; but to be amazing, strive to move and do more.
Will you involve yourself and do a little more to become amazing?
