“I think it is possible for ordinary people to choose to be extraordinary.” – Elon Musk

We all have a choice: to settle for the ordinary or to strive for the extraordinary. This choice is not about our inherent abilities or circumstances but about our mindset and the actions we take every day. It doesn’t mean that we have to try and be the next Elon, but it does empower us to live an exceptional life; to live in our wealthspace.

When it comes to money, it’s easy to feel like we’re at the mercy of forces beyond our control – market fluctuations, emotional downturns, unexpected expenses. But as Elon Musk’s quote suggests, we have more power than we often realise. We can choose to be extraordinary in how we manage our finances, how we plan for the future, and how we align our money with our values.

But what does choosing extraordinary look like in the context of personal finance?

It starts with having a clear vision for your financial life. What does success look like to you? What are the experiences, achievements, and legacies you want to create? By defining your extraordinary, you give yourself a north star to guide your financial decisions.

Next, it’s about crafting a plan to turn that vision into reality. This is where the power of extraordinary thinking really shines. It’s not about following the herd or settling for conventional wisdom. It’s about thinking creatively, questioning assumptions, and being willing to take calculated risks. It’s about looking beyond the immediate horizon and making choices that set you up for long-term success.

Of course, choosing extraordinary isn’t a one-time event. It’s a daily practice, a commitment to making decisions that align with your vision even when it’s not easy. It’s about staying the course in the face of setbacks, learning from mistakes, and continuously adapting your strategy as life evolves.

It’s in the willingness to think big, to take ownership of your financial destiny, and to keep pushing forward even when the path isn’t clear.

So as you reflect on your own financial journey, ask yourself: are you settling for ordinary, or are you choosing extraordinary? Are you letting life happen to you, or are you actively shaping the life you want? Remember, every choice you make, no matter how small, is an opportunity to steer your financial life in the direction of your dreams.
