“I don’t have time.” I’m sure you have said that a few times before. And I bet when you said it, you really believed yourself.
“I hardly have time to get myself dressed let alone to go above and beyond.” You’ve probably thought that.
Can you say you’ve gone the extra mile for something? Now you’re thinking: “WTF does going the extra mile even mean?”
So here goes: Going the extra mile basically means that whenever everyone else has stopped, you keep going. It is when you do more than is needed. Those people going the ‘extra mile’ are willing to make a special effort to do or achieve something. Usually, people will go the extra mile for something they are passionate about.
Remeber Disney’s Hercules? He did it, he went the distance (the extra mile) and look what happened. Think about what would have happened in that movie if he just stopped….if he was just okay with mediocre. It wouldn’t have happened. Instead, he sang these words: “And I won’t look back, I can go the distance. And I’ll stay on track, no I won’t accept defeat.”
People, go the damn extra mile. How will your life look different if you do? I promise you won’t regret it.
Now we want to know what are you willing to go the extra mile for?
