Can we transform ordinary people into extraordinary people to achieve extraordinary things ?

We have a big deal today ! How to challenge people in our community to be active, more involved everywhere in professional work, volunteer work and with family?
If you are leader of group (work, association, family) how you can transform ordinary people to extraordinary people ?

  • Mar 17 2013: The greatest contribution we can make to the world is to cultivate our own self-awareness. We are not able to do this when we are continually concerned with how OTHERS should improve themselves.....Only the ego has the power to convince itself that it has topped out with respect to life potential. :-) The ego is a tricky bastard......we are not your egos.
    • Mar 17 2013: I agree, self-awareness is important...the best we can do is to improve our own understanding of what we do or why we don't do what we'd like to do. I don't want to convince people who they are or what they should do, but I like exploring human potential with others....I think we learn through the sharing of each others personal life experiences....if something I've done might strike a chord for you, then it might be something to try for yourself....not concerned how anyone does things, but I try to be there for them if they need encouragement doing it.I don't agree with anyone that tells me there's only one right way to do things. We have to find what's of value to us and in the process maybe find out more about ourselves.
