Why Average People Remain Average
If you do what you're expected to do, don't expect an outstanding result, my friend.
Study successful people and you'll sure to discover one thing that many of them would have in common... they live by that words of "always do more than what is expected of you."
I don't care. It could be sleeping an hour less everyday to have more time to build your wealth or whatsoever.
Whether you are mowing people's lawn or someone is mowing your lawn, when you are teaching a seminar or being a participant, or when sharing your knowledge or giving advice to your people, always do or give more than what people expect. Then they will flock around you, they will line up to meet you and be happy to support you in whatever thing that you want to do next.
If you're training to be a champion, don't just train like an average player. Train more than you're expected to train.
If you're building a multi-level marketing business, increase the numbers of prospects you would like to meet everyday. If it used to be 10, now you would have at least 12. By just increasing your effort 20%, you'll end up with 60 new prospects a month. Now, that's what I called exponential.
Trying to win a girl's heart? I'm not surprise that you could be "competing" with three other guys for the same girl. And you can only win if you're giving more than all of them if everyone's equal. I'm not saying giving more money or buying stuff-- give love, time or whatever that counts to her.
Whenever you are interacting with people or in a relationship, treat the other party extremely well.
Whatever is expected of you in that relationship, be it with your girlfriend or business partner or client, your spouse or your friend, always do or give more than what is expected of you in that relationship for that is the secret of making it a success.
It is not that you have to do or give a whole lot more; you have to do just a little bit more than the rest. That's it. The 10mm-difference is what Anthony Robbins calls it for you to become outstanding... in any undertaking.
To do this, it's not difficult. But most people are just too lazy to put in the effort. I'm one of them but I'll always keep reminding myself this-- winner's takes all. There is no second place, my friend. I would rather strive with the extra effort to get #1 because the pay off is many times greater.
Do you remember who the second best basketball player is? Nope. You can remember Michael Jordan because he's #1. In fact, as far as I know, there's no such place as 'the second best basketball player'.
Who's the second fastest runner in the world? Who knows. I just know the #1.
Others have called this 'more than expected attitude' as 'going for the extra mile'. Notice that they don't say the extra 10 miles.
Because the average persons don't bother to do more than what is expected of them. I know it's sad but that's the truth.
To most people, "always do more than what is expected of you" are mere words and they don't put substance to it because people are greedy and they just want to do the bare minimum to make money, to make a profit or whatever.
And guess what... successful people are never your average persons.
To be generous and to treat others extremely well, you must come from the perspective of abundance thinking. Then only "always doing more than what is expected of you" will come easy and naturally.
So the next time you are with somebody, or in a business negotiation, or just interacting with another person, ask how can I help you... without even expecting any return.
As the other saying goes- you have to give, in order to get. In fact, if you want to gather riches you have to be as generous as you can. Touch people's lives profoundly, in ways that they would never forget. Give it forward... help another and that person will help another. Always do more than what is expected of you. Do this and the reward will come to you 10 folds or 100 folds when you are least expecting it.
Do you think you can do more than what you're doing today? Of course you can. The question is... DO YOU WANT OR NOT? You'll have to decide for your own future on that.
