In this podcast episode, we give you the 4th and final part in the series of developing the habits of Going the Extra Mile, as outlined by the worlds most successful entrepreneur, Napoleon Hill.

DOING MORE THAN WHAT YOU’RE COMPENSATED FOR

The greatest benefit from this habit does not come to those to whom the service is actually rendered. It comes to the one who renders the service in the form of a changed mental attitude, which will give you more influence with other people, more self-reliance, greater initiative, more enthusiasm, more vision and definitive purpose. All of these are qualities for successful achievement.

THE POT OF GOLD

The pot of gold at the end of the rainbow is not a mere fairy tale!  The end of that extra mile is the spot where the rainbow ends, and that is where the pot of gold is hidden.

Few people ever arrive at the end of the rainbow.  When one gets to what they thought the rainbow ended, he finds that it’s still a fair distance. The trouble is that most of us is that we do not know how to find those rainbows.  Those who know the secret know that the end of the rainbow can be reached only by going the extra mile.

MAKING IT A HABIT

People do things or refrain from doing things because of a motive.  The soundest of motives for the habit of going the extra mile is the fact that it yields enduring dividends in ways too numerous to mention to all who follow the habit.

No one has ever been known to achieve permanent success without doing more than what you’re  paid for.  The practice has its counter-part in the laws of nature.   Its soundness is backed by  an impressive array of evidence.  It is based on common sense and justice.

The best of all methods for testing the soundness of this principle is that of putting it to work as part of one’s daily habits.  Some truths we can only realize through our own experience.

We know the rules by which success is attained.  Let us appropriate those rules and use them intelligently, thereby acquiring the personal riches that we demand, and adding to the wealth of our nation as well.

Title: The Habit of Going the Extra Mile (Part 4 of 4)

Date Published: December 18, 2015

Running Time: 05:46 minutes

Hey guys and girls! It’s John Millar here, the naked business coach stripping business back to the bare basics, bringing you the 4th and final part in the series of developing habits of going the extra mile.

Now, in this final segment of the series, we’re gonna focus on some key aspects of success, as outlined by the worlds most successful entrepreneur, Napoleon Hill,  who spent most of his life studying the successful entrepreneurs in American history. I want you to listen to the rest with the intent of employing this key principles in your life and imparting this wisdom directly to all those around you.

Now there is something about this habit of doing more than what your compensated for, which works on your behalf even while you sleep. Once it begins to work, it piles up riches so fast that it seems like clear magic. Like Aladdin’s lamp, it draws to one’s said an army of genies which come laden with bags of gold.

Here is the appropriate place to remind you of an important thing about the habit of doing more than what you’re paid for. It’s the strange influence which it has on the person who does it. The greatest benefit from this habit does not come to those to whom the service is actually rendered. It comes to the one who renders the service in the form of a changed mental attitude, which will give you more influence with other people, more self-reliance, greater initiative, more enthusiasm, more vision and definitive purpose. All of these are qualities for successful achievement.

“Do the right thing and you shall have the power,” said Emerson.  Ah yes, the power!  What can a person do in our world without power. The type of power that attracts other people instead of repelling them?  It must be a form of power which gains momentum from the laws of increasing returns through the operation of which one’s acts and deeds come back to you greatly multiplied.

The pot of gold at the end of the rainbow is not a mere fairy tale!  The end of that extra mile is the spot where the rainbow ends, and that is where the pot of gold is hidden.

Few people ever arrive at the end of the rainbow.  When one gets to what they thought the rainbow ended, he finds that it’s still a fair distance. The trouble is that most of us is that we do not know how to find those rainbows.  Those who know the secret know that the end of the rainbow can be reached only by going the extra mile.

The whole world is clamoring for such people who’ll do that.  They are needed and wanted in every walk of life.  Globally, industry has always had princely spaces and berths for people who will assume responsibilities and who’ll get the job done in the right mental attitude by going the extra mile.

Andrew Carnegie lifted no fewer than forty such men from the lowly station of day laborers to multi-millionaires.  He understood the value of people who are willing to go the extra mile.  Whenever he found such a person, he brought his “find” into the inner circle of his business and gave them an opportunity to earn all they were worth.

People do things or refrain from doing things because of a motive.  The soundest of motives for the habit of going the extra mile is the fact that it yields enduring dividends in ways too numerous to mention to all who follow the habit.

No one has ever been known to achieve permanent success without doing more than what you’re  paid for.  The practice has its counter-part in the laws of nature.   Its soundness is backed by  an impressive array of evidence.  It is based on common sense and justice.

The best of all methods for testing the soundness of this principle is that of putting it to work as part of one’s daily habits.  Some truths we can only realize through our own experience.

We know the rules by which success is attained.  Let us appropriate those rules and use them intelligently, thereby acquiring the personal riches that we demand, and adding to the wealth of our nation as well.

This has been John Millar, the naked business coach, and I hoped you’ve enjoyed this four part series inspired by the great Napoleon hill. I’ve liberally taken throughout many of his quotes, now probably stumbled over them once or twice.

This is a habit that I knew it within me , that was given to me as a child and something that my mother and father constantly said “what can I do to go the extra mile?” Maybe this is something that we should be taking to all of our children and everyone around us, for all those who we come in to contact with. Who would not benefit from the knowledge, capacity and desire go the extra mile.

This has been John Millar, the naked business coach, until next time. I hope this inspirational four part series is the one you go back to time and time again and I look forward in seeing you on the flip side. Until then check out our websites – moreprofitlesstime.com or ceo-ondemant.com.au. Lot’s of tips tools and strategies that we’ve gone the extra mile to bring to you to help you in your business. Until next time, be well!
