To be more than ordinary

With that word constantly on my mind, I notice it in a lot more places than I normally would. Like in this quote, while I was browsing the news:
“Fear never bothers you if you’re average, but the second you dare to be more than ordinary, fear awakens.” — Jon Acuff
And he's right. The easy thing to do would be to stay put, never changing. But there's something inside of every one of us that isn't content with unchanging stability. We all have that spark inside of us that urges us to do and be more. Fear will always be an obstacle, but it is oh-so-satisfying when you finally beat it.

I finally made it past the halfway point! The rest of this thing should be pretty easy, right? Right?


  1. I'm really impressed that you are able to write this many posts on the topic. And I am also highly enjoying them. NIce tidbits of awesomeness.

    I always get so impatient when I feel like change is slow in coming. I may whine while it's happening, but I admit that I am way happier when things are in flux.

  2. It's definitely been a challenge, but I've had some fun with it. Still, it seems like this month is never going to end.
