The premise for, Find Your Extraordinary, is that one need not simply exist. Via your entrepreneurial spirit, you can live closer to that which, you truly seek. She adds that this spirit doesn't necessarily mean that one need to start and maintain a billion dollar company, or any company. She explains that we decide for ourselves what success looks like, discard what has become antiquated for us, then, proceed. We love the right-up-front positivity (one of the 6 P's of the entrepreneurial spirit).
Herrin also covers the importance of self-analyzation, meditation, time management (this is a big one), gratitude, joy and self-talk/introspection.
Find Your Extraordinary, is a loving, critically-thinking, how-to for bringing out the best of yourself and others. It instructs. It implores. It asks, "What about this, instead of that?"
Actively noticing when your thoughts seem overly dramatic can clue you in to thoughts that are just that - thoughts, not facts.
Deep down, I think you already know that life is determined not by your past or your circumstances but rather by what you choose to do next.
Focus on the opportunity, not the obstacles.
Look ahead, not back - you're not going that way anyway.
Nothing is more powerful than a positive mind.
You have to be your own greatest source of belief and strength.
Your thoughts are not you, and they are not all true.
