Book SynopsisFind joy and love in ordinary, everyday experiences. By most measures, Daniel Olmes is an ordinary guy--but he's learned how to live an extraordinary life. In Memoirs of an Ordinary Guy, Daniel asserts that we are all capable of being extraordinary and redefines what it means to be just another ordinary person. He is living proof that extraordinary is there for all of us. It doesn't mean rich or famous. It doesn't mean better. To Daniel, "extraordinary" means grateful, honest, happy, loving, fearless, and faithful. Doing extraordinary things is not what makes us extraordinary. Being extraordinary is having an extraordinary perspective on our lives and the things that happen to us. Daniel's narrative will inspire everyone to view their lives differently, remind us of the stories that we all share, and spark a renewed curiosity about a world that's anything but ordinary.
