#096: 10 Keys For Living An Uncommon Life [Podcast]


10 Keys for living an

I believe most people live a very common life, experience very common results, and expect very common things. I’m here to tell you average and ordinary are overrated. The status quo is NOT what you were created to know or be.

On today’s program, I want to share with you living uncommonly. That’s right: today, I’m sharing 10 Keys For Living An Uncommon Life.

Defining “Uncommon”:

uncommon: not often found, not often seen, not often experienced; not oridnary. To be reamarkable, exceptional, and not ordinarily encountered.

What if you possessed these qualities in every area of your life? What if when people looked at you, they saw a model they desired to emulate? I believe – with all my heart – THIS is the destiny of every son and daughter of God.

I believe when we begin to live the UNCOMMON life as God designed us, we become change agents to the environment around us.

When People See Us They Should See:

  1. Uncommon Lifestyle
  2. Uncommon Health
  3. Uncommon Success
  4. Uncommon Relationships
  5. Uncommon Peace and Joy
  6. Uncommon Wisdom
  7. Uncommon Knowledge
  8. Uncommon Faith
  9. Uncommon Leadership
  10. Uncommon Influence

10 Keys for Living an Uncommon Life:

  1. Know who you are
  2. Refuse to conform to the expectations of the commoner
  3. Decide you will enter the UNCOMMON class
  4. Don’t do the things that most people do
  5. Do the things that most people won’t do
  6. Declare your independence from the common mindset
  7. Capture a vision for your uncommon life
  8. Be willing to stand up and be different
  9. Lead
  10. Stay true to yourself and trust in God’s design
