The world sold you a map to success, and you followed it—only to find that the world’s version of extraordinary is the trap of the ordinary. Your to-do list keeps growing, you haven’t been to the gym in weeks, and your family wants more time with you. You are doing your best, but you’re exhausted and unfulfilled. How did you get here, and where are you going? Michael Dauphinee understands that you don’t need a map with a final destination; you need your own compass. In Extraordinary, Michael provides four points on a compass that help you discover and live out your God-given calling.
- Identity: Instead of telling yourself what not to be, embrace who you are and utilize your natural strengths.
- Permission: Don’t limit yourself. Share your ideas and pursue your aspirations without needing approval from others.
- Courage: Overcome your fear of failure and close the gap between wishing and doing.
- Generosity: Don’t tie your hope to your resilience. Anchor to something bigger than yourself.
