The Habit of Going the Extra Mile

The Habit of Going the Extra Mile

An important principle of success in all walks of life and in all occupations is a willingness to GO THE EXTRA MILE; which means the rendering of more and better service than that for which one is paid, and giving it in a positive mental attitude.
Search wherever you will for a single sound argument against this principle, and you will not find it; nor will you find a single instance of enduring success which was not attained in part by its application.

The principle is not the creation of man. It is a part of Nature's handiwork, for it is obvious that every living creature below the intelligence of man is forced to apply the principle in order to survive.

Man may disregard the principle if he chooses, but he cannot do so and at the same time enjoy the fruits of enduring success.

Observe how Nature applies this principle in the production of food that grows from the soil, where the farmer is forced to GO THE EXTRA MILE by clearing the land, plowing it, and planting the seed at the right time of the year, for none of which he receives any pay in advance.

But, observe that if he does his work in harmony with Nature's laws, and performs the necessary amount of labor, Nature takes over the job where the farmer's labor ends, germinates the seed he plants and develops it into a crop of food.

And, observe thoughtfully this significant fact: For every grain of wheat or corn he plants in the soil Nature yields him perhaps a hundred grains, thus enabling him to benefit by the law of increasing returns.

A Salty Taste of Wisdom

A Taste of Wisdom

By: Author Unknown



An aging Hindu master grew tired of his apprentice

complaining and so, one morning, sent him for some salt.



When the apprentice returned, the master instructed the

unhappy young man to put a handful of salt in a glass of

water and then to drink it.



"How does it taste?" the master asked.



"Bitter," spit the apprentice.



The master chuckled and then asked the young man to take

the same handful of salt and put it in the lake.



The two walked in silence to the nearby lake and once the

apprentice swirled his handful of salt in the water, the

old man said, "Now drink from the lake."



As the water dripped down the young man's chin, the master

asked, "How does it taste?"



"Fresh," remarked the apprentice.



"Do you taste the salt?" asked the master.



"No," said the young man.



At this the master sat beside this serious young man, who

so reminded him of himself, and took his hands, offering:
