10 Things That Require 0 Talent But Make You Extraordinary


Everyone us human but these 10 things cost nothing, requires no talent but make you extraordinary. ♥

“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence is not an act, but a habit.”

1. Being on time
Being time goes beyond just being on time, when you are on time it shows you are disciplined, organised and prepared. When you are on time, it also, in the long run, leaves you more free time to do whatever you want and you will start to develop a huge respect and sense of achievement within yourself.

2. Work ethic
Developing a strong work ethic to get things done even when you don’t feel like it. Everyone is human, but the one thing that creates extraordinary achievements is being able to fight through what they don’t feel like doing and do the thing that will transform their life even when they don’t want to do it. Doing your best in this moment sets you up for your next opportunities. 

“Never leave that ‘till tomorrow which you can do today.” – Benjamin Franklin

“To be successful, you must be willing to do the things today others won’t do in order to have the things tomorrow others won’t have.” – Les Brown

3. Effort
Increasing your effort to putting 100% into everything. To get the life it takes effort. You don’t have to be the most gifted, the most talented, the richest, the quickest, the smartest, all you got to do is just do the work. “Don’t expect to see a change if you don’t make one.” 

4. Body Language
Body language is communication without words. Your body language tells people more about you than you could imagine. Having strong confident body language can make a difference in how you feel and how well you can communicate your message across effectively.

5. Energy
Be the energy you want to attract. “People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” – Maya Angelo 

6. Attitude
Having a good attitude can determine your level of success and helps you easily bounce back. Attitude is a choice. 

“A great attitude becomes a great day which becomes a great month which becomes a great year which becomes a great life.” – Mandy Hale

“You cant always have a good day. But you can always face a bad day with a good attitude.”

7. Passion
Get passionate, get curious, discover what your interested in and find what fires your belly, discover what you can talk about for hours and share that thing that lights you up! Use visualisation to imagine yourself getting out of bed excited and being passionate. Passion is contagious. It’s amazing to be around people who are passionate about life.

8. Being coachable
When you need help, don’t be afraid to ask for it, don’t feel like you know it all or you are too good to keep learning. We are all human and we all need help sometimes and that small help can lead your life into the right direction. “Be smart enough to know when you need help and be brave enough to ask for it.” Being coachable opens the door for new possibilities.

9. Doing extra
Whether it be in your job, your relationships, always be willing to give and go extra. Even if at first it may not be reciprocated, it will come back to you in wondrous ways. You get what you give. Also when you give extra effort, it also makes you feel really good.

10. Being prepared 
Confidence comes from being prepared. When you are prepared you can 100% go for it – the more prepared, the more chance of success. Preparation puts you in control of your destiny.  “Spectacular achievement is always preceded by unspectacular preparation.”
