MYST 31 Booster: Be Regular But Act Extraordinary!


Almost everyone is a “regular” person. But some people are “extraordinary.” Kara Counard is regular, too, but she acts “as if” she is actually “extraordinary.”

We can all act “as if” we are successful and extraordinary. It is a choice. But in all honesty, it can be a difficult choice. And most people  don’t try.

I hope that you are one of the people who will try to act extraordinary.

MYST 30 Kara Counard: 101 Women Changed Her Life

Kara never sits still. She was working as a bartender, a Starbucks barrista, an appraisal service, a figure model for several art schools, and was a free-lance graphic design artist, all at the same time. Photography was not part of her life plan. She thought starting an Etsy store was her future. But she listened to her customers and in the process created a business–all because she filled the needs of her customers. She gave them what they wanted!

MYST 29 Booster: Never Quit!

It’s not always the person who was naturally gifted who wins. It’s not always the person with the best tools. Sometimes it is the person who refuses to quit, who faces the challenges and never surrenders.

But you also need to make sure that you are truly making progress. If you aren’t making any progress, maybe then you need to step back, critically assess your plan and make the necessary changes.

MYST 28 Kelly Bucheger: Quirky, Persistent, and a Gnocchi Expert

The old joke goes:

A teenager gets off the train in New York City, and as he leaves the station carrying his violin, he spots a police officer. Walking up to him, he asks, “How do I get to Carnegie Hall?”

Without missing a beat, the officers says, “Practice, son, practice!”

Kelly Bucheger doesn’t live in New York City, but rather Buffalo, NY and he shows why success happens when you find your calling in ife and then never let anything become an obstacle in your path. He is a jazz saxaphonist and he shares how he found success in the Twin Cities of Minnesota, then left and moved to Buffalo where he knew no one, and rebuilt a successful career in performance and composing.

A few resources Kelly talked about:

James Carter Ruined My Life. is a 2011 post on his blog Harder Bop.

MYST 27 Booster: What Haven’t You Tried Yet?

If at first you don’t succeed, try try again!

And then, if you still don’t succeed, then what? Do you keep trying the same thing? I hope not. If it didn’t work the first three times, why do you think the fourth will be different.

Knowing when to keep going and when to pivot to a new direction is the key to success. Let’s talk about how to make that decision.
