Key To Success – Do A Little More

  If you wanna be successful, then you’ve got to do a little more. You’ve got to do a little more than the average person. You’ve got to do a little more than you’re paid to do. You’ve got to do a little more than you feel like doing. You’ve got to do a little more than you’re required to do. You’ve got to do a little more than your competition, and you’ve got to do a little more than you think you need to do. Your success in life will be in direct proportion to what you do after you do what you’re expected to do. William Boetcker said that people tend to divide themselves into four classes:

1 – Those who always do less than they’re told.

2 – Those who will do what they’re told, but no more.

3 – Those who will do things without being told.

4 – Those who will inspire others to do things.

And who is it who inspires others to do things?! It’s those who do a little more! When people do things because they’re told to, not because they want to, they don’t perform at their best. But people who do things because they want to, well, they’re almost unstoppable! This is why you’ve got to be inspired from within. This is why, if you’re a leader, you’ve got to figure out how to get your people inspired. Motivation can come from within, but it’s usually external, while inspiration is basically internal. It comes from within a person. Any leader who relies on external power and control will find that his or her organization, over time, will have a difficult time maintaining a standard of excellence. In other words, if you wanna be successful, then you’ve got to do a little more, but it’s got to come from within. It’s got to be because you want to do a little more, not because someone forces you to. With this in mind, if you’re given enough time, will people say that you’re the type of person who goes the extra mile and always does a little more than you’re required to do?
