Go The Extra Mile

A tremendously powerful life habit is going the extra mile in everything that you do. When you give everything that you have without worrying about what you may “get” in return, and do this day in and day out, great things will come into your life.

They won’t always come exactly when you want them or in a way that you anticipate, but good things will absolutely come into your life if you always give your best in everything you do.  I am willing to bet big on this.  Not only that, but good things will come to you, when you have a habit of going the extra mile, when you aren’t expecting them.

Over the years we have been the benefactors of many unexpected and seemingly random blessings to our business because someone said something to someone else about their positive experience with us. This is because we’ve built in the habit of going the extra mile in everything that we do.

At a recent conference I attended author Dewitt Jones said something that had a major impact on me:

Take the best that you have, give it all to the world, no matter what you get back

The magic in this philosophy is that when you are willing to give your best to the world, no matter what you get back, good things will come back to you.

So everyday in your business, as you are working hard, go the extra mile, give everything you have. If you don’t “get” exactly what you want, exactly when you want it, have faith that good things will happen to you if you just continue on and persist, because they will.
