Extraordinary Life

Nuggets of Wisdom

Extraordinary Life is an inspirational video with little nuggets of wisdom about how we can have a simple and wonderful life. You can use this video to inspire and motivate your team as well.

Life has a way of getting to us that makes us lose clarity about the things that really matter in life. After working day after day, it’s only normal that we start losing our focus about the things that really matter to us.

Once in a while, we need reminders about our priorities. We need to remember that things like family, friends, love, peace, rest are far more important than trying to get more money, or work more hours. This is especially so if you’re a leader of a team. You must lead with wisdom and guide your team accordingly to the right values.

Let this inspirational video be a reminder to you again about the things that are really important with its little nuggets of wisdom.

Here is the video transcript:

Extraordinary Life

Some ideas on how to make everyday lie more joyous and EXTRAordinary.

Take a nap on Sunday afternoon.
Trust in God but lock your car.

If you see someone without a smile, give them one of yours.
Eat inspiring food. Be thankful for every meal.
Don’t take good health for granted.

Enjoy your job and you’ll never work another day in your life.

Turn to the person next to you and say, “You’re GREAT!”
Make it a habit to do nice things… for people who will never find out.
T.G.I.T. Thank God It’s Today!
Judge your success by the degree to which you are enjoying peace, health and love.

When you lose, don’t lose the lesson.
Be generous. Be honest. Be romantic.
Live so that when your children think of fairness, caring and integrity, they think of you.
Be gentle with the earth. Be gentle with others. Be gentle with yourself.

Never interrupt when someone is complimenting you.
Just take a deep breath and say, “Thanks – please tell me more.”
Don’t be an a-dull-t. Allow your child to come out to play
Take your dog to obedience school. You’ll both learn a lot
Don’t nag. Don’t gossip. Don’t tailgate.
Say thank you a lot. Say please a lot.
Think of the most difficult people you know … and learn to love them.

Don’t postpone joy. There’s no time like the present to be JOYOUS.
Stop blaming others. Take responsibility for every part of your life.
Never give up on anyone. Miracles happen everyday.

Remember the two things that people cannot take away from you: Your dignity. Your birthdate.
Laugh your head off.
Seriously, let’s laugh our heads off! Okay, let’s put our heads back on again.
Do more than is expected and do it cheerfully.

Live life with passion and give others the permission to do the same.
Wake up every morning and say, “I am so happy to be alive!”(even on Mondays)
Learn to put love into everything you do. Take care of your soul.
Breathe – deeply and often.

Life is short .. play hard. pray hard.
Remember that on one can make you feel bad without your permission.
Attitudes are contagious… is yours worth catching?
Embrace all your feelings. And choose what to do with them.
Be a friend to Money… not a slave.
