Rule #2 – A Better Way to Live

“Today, and every day, deliver more than you are getting paid to do. The victory of success will be half won when you learn the secret of putting out more than is expected in all that you do. Make yourself so valuable in your work that eventually you will become indespensable. Exercise your privilege to go the extra mile, and enjoy all the rewards you receive. You deserve them!”

Regardless if you go to a “9-5 job” or work for yourself at home, you get paid on the work that you do.

A question is often asked, “How do I make more money?” The answer is simple, “GO TO WORK!”

Everything in life has its price, and unless you belong to that tiny elite who have had everything handed to them since birth, I’m afraid the only way you can pay for things you want and need and dream about is with the compensation for the work you do.

You may be nodding in agreement, but you don’t look happy. Struggling to stay ahead of the bills? Not making much progress or growth in that job or home business you’ve already been at it much too long without any advancement? You’d like a new house but can’t afford it? Same with that clunker you’re driving? Your life seems to be on a holding pattern; how do you get off the treadmill?

Go the extra mileOg Mandino says, “There is an answer, a solution, a rule, and I’ll wager that it has never failed for those who have truly applied it. When it comes to improving the career side of your life, the greatest secret of success was delivered to us from a mountaintop, nearly two thousand years ago, when Jesus told us that if we were compelled to go a mile with someone, we should always go two. The extra mile.”

If you resolve, beginning tomorrow, to put out more on your job or business than you’re getting paid to do, miracles will begin to happening in your life. Whatever you are doing for a living, whether you’re selling products, painting houses, manning computers, or sweeping floors – if, each day, you do more than you’re getting paid for, your life’s pattern will soon change for the better.

When you give more than you’re getting paid to give, every day, you will not only promote yourself, but by being indispensable you will discover, to your suprise, that new opportunities are all around you, and eventually you’ll be able to write your own price tag.

Such a simple rule. Go another mile! Won’t cost you a cent, and yet it’s so powerful that when you follow it, you will change your life forever!

I for one, plan to put this into action immediately and expecting amazing results!

“Today, and every day, deliver more than you are getting paid to do. The victory of success will be half won when you learn the secret of putting out more than is expected in all that you do. Make yourself so valuable in your work that eventually you will become indespensable. Exercise your privilege to go the extra mile, and enjoy all the rewards you receive. You deserve them!”
