Extraordinary!

Extraordinary!
If you have ever heard me speak in person you may have heard me say that our words are powerful. If we had any idea how powerful our words are, we would be very careful in choosing the ones we allow to come out of our mouths. Our words have a dramatic impact on our reality.

I recently had the opportunity to visit a beautiful resort on a mountain to facilitate a Board Meeting for an organization.
Whenever Shelley MacDougall and I start a retreat with an organization, we start by asking the participants to create intentions of what they would like to accomplish.
My mountain top retreat was consistent with this, but the difference was that I challenged these people to come up with extraordinary intentions. One word changed the level of expectation.

When asked to come up with an intention participants often write down things they think can be accomplished.
When asked to come up with extraordinary intentions they usually write down things they would like to accomplish but aren't sure they can.

My wife Rose and I experimented with this one day when we were on vacation. We decided to have an extraordinary day. We wondered if it would be possible to make every thing we did, every moment, extraordinary. Could we make the ordinary, extraordinary? We decided that our conversations, our meals, our experiences, a cup of tea, quiet time by ourselves independent of each other, our intimate time together, the people we would meet, the movie we would watch would all be extraordinary.

We truly had an extraordinary day!
A cup of tea was much more than a cup of tea. We were served in a silver tea pot in a luxurious environment by an impeccably dressed server that made our afternoon special. The tea was special blend of Earl Grey, and we loved it and appreciated every sip.

We get to choose and yet we often choose ordinary. I am not saying it is bad, it is just what we tend to do, day after day. One person's ordinary might be different than another person's extraordinary. I am not suggesting you compare yourself to other people, just define extraordinary for you.

I have found that when we look for the extraordinary we often find it. When that is the level we are shooting for we tend to raise our standards and the amount of effort we give to get there.

What are your extraordinary possibilities?

Do you choose to have an extraordinary life?
Do you choose an extraordinary Saturday, game of golf, experience, bottle of wine, day with the kids, creative time, day at the spa or walk in nature?

As coaches who care deeply about the success of the people we work with in the club management industry we have created a program called The Extraordinary Leader. To take a look at the way we are working to make a difference in the level of leadership in an industry please check out The Extraordinary Leader Program at www.thecoachingdept.com
