Find Your X-Factor, Be Xtraordinary


Not many can understand something as complicated as the X-factor because it cannot be graded or measured in numbers. Like many other good things, it is felt by you. On the other hand, it is easy to know who the x.y.z people are. XYZ is also a code for zipper down, but we are not dealing with pant zips today. 

When we talk about Monalisa painting, we say Leonardo Da Vinci painted it. If we see some art which is not attractive with an unknown author, we call it a painting by some xyz artist. So, how do we become someone special and not just any xyz? The key is to find our X-factor like so many ordinary people did to play  a role, write a book, create a masterpiece, find their talent in a game or a talent for doing something they were passionate about. 

What do you cherish the most in your life besides the people and relationships? It is something rare, unique and has some special thing about it, right?  It can be a book, a jewelry, a cutlery or anything, but if you cherish it, then it is something extraordinary. Finding your X-factor will make you that treasure which you value. Though we all talk about the X-factor not many find it, because we are not looking for it. 

It is believed that every person is born with a X-factor but they live their life without finding it. 

On the stage of the reality shows, we have seen ordinary people perform extraordinary feats. It is those who found their X-factor and a platform to show it off. For every person receiving a standing ovation there, there are millions who haven't found that X-factor, or just ignored it after finding it.

Stand our with your X-factor
If you ever had a brush with your passionate abilities, but you pushed it aside because you had a more important task on hand, think back on it once again. Catch hold of your X-factor that brings out that unique talent in you which gives you a sense of effortless joy, which makes you feel like a Xtraordinary person. It is not always important for others to acknowledge that you are Xtraordinary, you have to feel it and experience it.

Not everybody who finds their X-factor has to make it big, though it always helps to have a bonus. Many may enjoy helping poor and needy, but they may not make it as big as what Mother Theresa did. Every person who found their writing talent may not become as famous as J.K Rowling. But, every person can be special in their own life and make a difference in any small way they can. We lost touch with our X-factor when we were told A- is for apple when our mind was thinking about a lot of things that connected to A.

For me A looked like a swing from sideways but our imagination is shut off when we are forced to learn like everyone else. That was the past. Now we have got another shot at life, and let us live that by being someone special in our own small unique way. 

An ambition, a purpose and a goal to pursue will always give you extra strength to fight for your life. So it is time now to find your X-factor, or if you had already found it, focus more on it to make it big. Let the treasure hunt begin for our X-factor. Good luck!

Below I am sharing few art creations by my special needs daughter which will prove that even simple things can be Xtraordinary.

She called it 'Tree of Life'

  1. X-cellent post. Your daughter has certainly found her x-factor. I like how you emphasize that once finding your x-factor, your become special in your own way.

  2. Hmmm... I'll have to think about this for a while... what's my X-factor.

    I really like your daughter's artwork, especially the Tree of Life.

  3. The flowers are especially pretty!
    I like to believe that writing is my X factor.

    I love letter X posts! Always such variety.
    It's hard to believe the blogging challenge is almost over. Then the after survey, reflections, and the road trip sign-up.
    Plus, I'm taking part in the Bout of Books read-a-thon in May. So much excitement!

  4. Farheena's 'Tree of Life' is fabulous. It has such vitality and energy and yet it seems grounded.

  5. Interesting post. I like about people that they are so unique. Just as you were saying, give people an "A", and many will think "apple", but some see the swing, and others associate Blood type A or something completely different with it.

    I'm trying to think what my X-factor may be. Maybe the fact that people are important to me, I'll give you an example: all the bloggers I meet during my journey, become "personas" in my mind, and I think of them as Acquaintances. Some time in the future I may encounter a situation, in which I will think "quantity before quality of life, just as Farida taught me.

  6. Yay! You came back to read my X Factor, which was a totally different thing from yours since it involved the eX. I like yours better! My X Factor is my creativity, which cannot be contained.

    Love your daughter's artwork. Especially the group portrait. So sweet.
