I had the pleasure of actually being involved in the making of “Being Extraordinary-The New Model for Success“. This new book is what is referred to as an enhanced book for the Apple iPad. I am a partner in an organization called Wiseologie Media Group, and we develop enhanced books for authors and publish them in the various forms of digital media for tablets such as the iPad, Nook, Amazon Kindle Fire etc.
Guy’s new book ” Being Extraordinary” is a question and answer format allowing the reader to easily extract the words of wisdom from Guy Finley without having to read every page of the book–although you should its a wonderful book. I personally interviewed Guy for over five hours, and our interviews are the foundational material included in “Being Extraordinary” For Guy Finley this book is a leap into addressing many issues facing business leaders from a spiritual perspective.
A very important topic that is covered is the shift that Guy would like to see business leaders make, from one of “what can I take” to “what can I give or contribute to the world“. This concept might seem simple, but imagine a world where our business leaders make a shift in their thinking from “taking” to “giving”. Not only would our business world be transformed, all businesses and the stakeholders–employees, vendors, stockholders would become part of a global transformation in the exchange of good and services benefiting humanity–social responsibility would be the focus.
Guy says that the ordinary is created to serve the extraordinary, and that we realize this relationship within ourselves by learning what it means to come “awake” and be “present” to ourselves at all times. In becoming extraordinary, one of the most valuable lessons is to awaken to our own personal relationship with our “higher-self” the self that transcends aspects of our self that are not awake to what and who we are becoming in each and every moment. At this point we experience our own personal revelation, we realize that their are not failures only learning lessons and opportunities to progress in our own awakening to who and what we are becoming.
Guy states that the “I” must be willing to die for the “We” if we are to become fearless. In “Being Extraordinary” the reader will learn that to transcend the ego’s dominion and realize our connection to the “One”. You learn that you are not separate, you are One with the Source and Being Extraordinary is part of our divine right.
