Success Begins on the Extra Mile

I have been thinking about all those people I have seen succeed over the last few years and their is a common theme.

Their success is due to the willingness to do 1% extra effort compared to those around them. When make that one extra phone call at the end of a bad day. Just to see if they turn it around.

Staying up to finish something and then going back to make sure it’s right and not quitting until it’s done. Making a promise to deliver something and then doing whatever it takes to deliver on that promise.

Success show’s it self when you are having one of those days when you just want to stay in bed and bury yourself deep in your duvet. Getting out of bed and picking yourself up, and dusting yourself down. Picking up the phone to that estate agent, letting agent and JV partner. Not because it’s easy but because it’s the right thing to do.

Those people who you see having extraordinary success do so in that extra mile when the ordinary have quit and decided to watch TV instead.

We all have that extra 1% in us. Dig it out more often and you too will be an overnight success 10 years from now.
