Going The Extra Mile
There is one sure way to get what you want in life, but few people actually do it. Put this practice firmly into your day to day business activities and you will have an advantage over the rest of the crowd.
Successful people realize their life long dreams by doing things that most people are not willing to do. If you can just do what is needed instead of what you want to do, you can accomplish a lot.
People that get what they want in business don't just give 100% each day. When the day is through and you've done your best, it is now time to make the extra effort to accomplish one more small goal or to finish the day's original goal. 'Going the extra mile' does not require a massive effort on your part. If you put forth only 5% of your daily effort, a small goal is easily attained. Doing this only three days a week can produce impressive results by the end of the month.
Do you have a problem getting things done? Then don't be satisfied with another day gone and your goal not met. Put forth that small extra effort on a regular basis and you will begin reaching your goals.
Going the extra mile is part of a small business success mindset. It's your business, you are ultimately responsible for the results. Setting deadlines for yourself and writing down your goals makes it easier to go the extra mile. You can see on paper the goal set for that day. Many times you will see that by the end of the day you are very close to meeting your goal. You can now go your extra mile because you know it is only going to take a small amount of extra effort.
Going the extra mile will enable you to reach more of your goals. This allows you to 'raise the bar' on your new goals, creating growth in your business. Growth does wonders for your attitude and makes the road to success more enjoyable.
What's the bottom line on going the extra mile? More signups for your network marketing business. More sales for your infoproduct business. And you'll get what you want a lot faster when you are willing to do what others are not.
