Do what you like, like what you do

Filed under: Success 

I have a cap that has the slogan “Life is good” on the front.

And I recently noticed inside the cap is found another phrase,
“Do what you like, like what you do.”

Not always are we immediately compensated financially for
following this advice.  But at least we do have a chance at
a fulfilling life that we like.

But what if you would like to be compensated for doing what
you like to do?

Well, you must develop the habit of doing more than you are
paid for.  You must continually provide more and better service
than that for which you are paid, even though other people
do not follow this philosophy.


Because you will build a reputation as a person who goes the
extra mile, and you will be noticed above and beyond others who
do not do this.  Plus, you will be continually positioned to
learn, master, and apply new ideas, strategies, and techniques
as well as meet others who are and will recognize you as a
person who believes and applies this principle of success.

Let me ask you.  Have you noticed it’s always lonely on the
extra mile?

Now, what do I mean by that?  Most people do not do more than
paid for.  Most people don’t even do what they are paid for.

If you practice this principle of doing more than paid for,
you make yourself invaluable to others and raise your value
in the marketplace for your services.  Realize that those who
practice this principle also recognize it in others and are
more apt to welcome you to their ranks of successful people.

If those that pay you now don’t recognize and reward you for
your extra effort, knowledge, and skills, then look elsewhere
to those who will reward you.

You have a choice to make–get or get by.

If you choose get, then provide more service than you are paid
for and reap the greater rewards for your effort where you are
ultimately paid more than the effort required.

If you choose to get by, you will always receive just the minimum
for the service you provide.

Look at how nature provides for a farmer.  Who plants the seed?
The seed grows not only to yield more seed, but also a great
harvest, greater than the seed planted.

It’s the Law of Increasing Returns.

By providing more service than we are paid, we may yield returns
in excess of, and out of proportion to, the effort put forth.

Listen to that Law of Increasing Returns again:  By providing
more service than we are paid, we may yield returns in excess
of, and out of proportion to, the effort put forth.

By you providing more and better service than you are paid for,
others get into the habit of calling on you for assistance, and
if they also understand this concept of The Law of Increasing
Returns, know that they are obligated to reward you in some
manner, financially or otherwise.

Develop the attitude that it is your privilege to do more than
you are required, so that you can be positioned for greater
responsibilities and the rewards that go with them.

Remove the attitude that you are cheated unless you receive
material pay for all the service you render.

Your success is attracted to you, and you are attracted to your
success by applying the principle of The Law of Increasing
Returns.  It is a law of nature that is timeless in ability to
work for you, others, and in the physical world, as well.

And Ralph Waldo Emerson makes this point, “Cause and effect, means
and ends, seed and fruit cannot be severed, for the effect already
blooms in the cause.  The end pre-exists in the means, the fruit,
and the seed.”

Amazingly, when this Law of Increasing Returns is applied in your
life, you will soon discover that the world is willingly paying
you for more than you do.  Knowledge becomes power only through
organization and use.  And rarely are you provided the opportunity
to turn your knowledge into power of application unless you do
more than what you are paid to do.

You cannot become successful without developing leadership in your
chosen field.  And you cannot become a leader without doing more
than what you are paid for.

This is an excerpt from just one of the lessons in the
Ultimate Success Program.

When you’re ready, I invite you to join the thousands
who have applied these life lessons that I’ve put together
into a step-by-step success program.

There’s one recurring theme through all of the lessons,
and that is to take action on each and every step. If
you don’t do that, nothing will happen for you.

The law of cause and effect is real, you must be the
cause (the action) to get the desired effect (your
dreams and goals).

May I help you too?

As always, my best to you —

Mark Hendricks
