The Emotion of Outstanding

Wednesday, May 15th, 2013

How many of you are like me? You get caught up in moments. Moments like the Master’s win where Adam Scott made two huge putts to win, or an amazing street performer who can put his whole body through a tennis racket or maybe its a pastor who can lead 5000 people with a timeless message like Norman Vincent Peale.

Undoubtedly, moments like these can be emotional due to sheer amazement.

The emotion of outstanding is one so many of us don’t really understand. In the sense of we don’t know why we get pulled into these moments. For instance, you stumble upon a YouTube video of a guy who unfortunately has no arms and no legs climbing a mountain. Next thing you know you are completely enthralled with who this person is and everything they are doing.

There is a certain emotion when we see someone doing something “outstanding.” Something beyond excellence or great but something seemingly impossible.

It seems to me the more I study about being outstanding the more I’ve come to realize why we become enthralled. We see these outstanding feats and begin to think we are a capable of these acts as well. Inherently, we know we are meant for more.

Here is my challenge to you. Find your way to be outstanding, find your way of seeing yourself doing the seemingly impossible. Find your way to inspire the world.

You were designed for greatness in someone’s image with infinite potential. Maybe it’s time to step up and find that emotional connection between you and the rest of the world.
