About a week ago, I made a promise to myself to walk up as many flight of stairs as possible everyday. There is a total of 28 flights of stairs that I’m determined to climb throughout the day. Until I made that commitment, I was complaining about my weight and eating a cupcake. The decision to walk up the stairs didn’t require a lot of deliberation on my part.

It’s easy to be mediocre. It’s easy to stay comfortable and settle. It’s easy to stay still rather than move forward and face the unfamiliar. To be extraordinary and going after your dreams requires stamina. The journey to being extraordinary is a marathon. To be a trail blazer, a thought leader, an icon, a legend, a role model requires you to push beyond being comfortable.
