Within the plethora of publications dealing with spiritual / self enhancement there is an all too noticeable lack, if not absence of what you would call the 'real deal'. Being Extraordinary - A New Model for Success dares to address this disparity in pursuing the issues of applying our extra ordinary self to our professional as well as our personal lives. It discusses, for instance, such basic inherent human traits as giving and taking. It explores whether the corporate bottom line should, or can, take precedence over personal integrity and the common good. It addresses not only the fear of speaking out on these and other issues in the boardroom, but more importantly, their intertwinement in our actions in all facets of our lives. It encourages us to examine how we respond, and how our responses affect others, even on the global level. Truly, as Dag Hammersjold stated, "It's when we all play safe that we create a world of utmost insecurity."
Whether you are just initiating your pursuit of Being Extraordinary, are in the midst of your journey, or are a seasoned traveler, this book will give you specific tools relevant at all stages. From the 7 Steps to the Next Level of Success found in Chapter 1, through all of the ensuing chapters, to the Four Keys to Inspired Living in Chapter 7, and culminating with the 21 Extraordinary Key Lessons, specific, time honored, practices are at your disposal. They all bear witness to the wisdom of the ages in that, Success lies not in doing what others consider to be great, but rather, in doing what we know to be right.
