Consider the following quote if you would. I think the message it holds is well worth giving some serious thought to…
“No one ever attains very eminent success by simply doing what is required of him; it is the amount and excellence of what is over and above the required that determines the greatness of ultimate distinction.” — Charles Kendall Adams
If I might be so bold I’d like to share a thought of my own along this same topic for you to consider as well…
“The average person says “that’s not my job” — while the leader transcends their job description and inevitably reaps untold rewards for doing so.” — Josh Hinds
It’s easy to ignore the opportunities to “let the buck stop with you”, but in doing so you may be short circuiting the advancement which always makes its way to the person who goes above and beyond the call of duty.
Strive to be that person who goes above and beyond what’s necessarily expected of you and you will see more of life’s rewards making their way into your life.
It’s your life, LIVE BIG!
