Chapter 7, Page 17, Book 13

With ordinary talent and extraordinary perseverance, all things are attainable. 

Thomas Foxwell Buxton

Specially blended to be extraordinary…

If you live just for today, to make today the most successful, happy day of your life, I am sure that you will have an extraordinary life. A successful life is nothing more than a series of successful days.


Experiencing a happy or successful life simply comes down to having happy or successful days.  You can do extraordinary things—no matter how ordinary your life may seem.  

Throughout history, there are people who live ordinary lives, and those who live life to its fullest.  I've heard it once said that if we want to live an extraordinary life, we must treat every day as extraordinary. 

Living an extraordinary life does not mean living a perfect life or an idyllic life. It means living each day as it comes.  Everyday is a gift. Embrace what God has blessed you with today and move on.  

Never forget that it's the little ordinary things that make life extraordinary!  Make the little things matter and find joy in your little moments.  

The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is that little extra. 

Jimmy Johnson



You are right about this one MA. The ordinary things make life extra special.

Right on the mark, as always, Ma. Life really offers us so many opportunities to improve upon what we have if we but will. A man will be as happy as he's a mind to be- or as successful. Have an awesome day, my friend. love you much.
