What makes you laugh?
What makes you adore?
What touches you?
Most of the time it is something out of the ordinary. Out-of-the-ordinary or extraordinary. Ordinary is derived from the Latin word Ordianarius, meaning orderly. Ponder on that for while. Scary word, orderly…
Yesterday I saw a number of great artists performing. They definitely were out of the ordinary and the crowd that went wild was humongous! It gave energy.
The same for Guernica from Pablo Picasso, the numerous paintings of Salvador Dali or the coloured squares of Piet Mondriaan. All paintings that were out of the ordinary and touched a lot of hearts (and souls).
And yet, we most of us try not to be out of the ordinary, but try to blend in. Being ordinary. When everybody’s doing that, the world would become a very boring place and everything will stay the same…
And a boring place is like a still standing pond of water. It becomes cloudy.
So with this post, I challenge everybody to go extraordinary once in a while. Do something that is against conventions. Take something ordinary and turn it around. Challenge people at work, challenge your friends or family by thinking and doing different. Not matter the outcome, it will always be different than the situation before.
That is the start of change.
Stirring the pond.
De-clouding the water.
I believe every one of us has something extraordinary and with that extraordinary thing you can change the world!
But it is scary to be extraordinary.
That’s why I invented a Magic Potion. Magic Potion Number YOU.
It’s very simple: Take a glass of water add a drop of lemon or citron, then a pinch of salt. Stir it three times clockwise, than slam it on a table and drink it.
You’ll instantly feel a twinkle to do something extraordinary. It was already in you and the potion freed it!
This one’s for inspiration:
One last thing: When you use the potion, you become the magical touch that makes a difference.
Be the magic!
