Ask the best in the world the single greatest secret to success, and they’ll sit back in their chair, put their feet up on the desk, and take a long thoughtful pause. With their hands folded behind the crown of their head, they may start to gently chuckle to themselves, because they know:
Seeking the “secret to success” is the wrong approach.
Many are told that gaining success can only happen through magic or luck. Success is often described as a location one arrives at—a status gained through mere magic or luck. However, extraordinary success cannot be distilled down to something as fickle as luck; it requires more.
Jeremy Ryan Slate is the founder of Top 100 podcast “Create Your Own Life,” where he hosts conversations with Indy 500 winners, NY Times best selling authors, platinum recording artists, billionaires, even the former director of the CIA—some of the highest performers in the world. After studying these interviews, Slate has discovered a common thread: these individuals embodied certain characteristics that led them to be extraordinary. He shares his findings in Unremarkable to Extraordinary, which shows motivated individuals how to:
- See and use adversity as a tool for growth
- Seek the biggest, scariest goals imaginable
- Outline a personal, individualized measurement of success
- Direct and share their own story
- Be radically responsible for their own success
According to Slate, becoming extraordinary takes time and work, but after learning the core elements of success, anyone can go from Unremarkable to Extraordinary.
