Going that extra mile makes difference in life


JIM STOVALL
I am very proud to be thought of as an author, speaker, movie producer, and columnist in the field of success and personal development. It's great to have a growing and thriving business, but it's even more special when your business deals with helping people and organizations meet their goals. I believe that the field of success and personal development was created and came to prominence through the life's work of one man: Napoleon Hill. Napoleon Hill will always be best known for his book "Think and Grow Rich." "Think and Grow Rich" remains the bestselling and most influential book in the field of personal development. Over the past several years, I have had the privilege of working with Don Green and the team at the Napoleon Hill Foundation on several book and documentary film projects. It is ironic that when you mention virtually any book to someone, you will invariably ask, "Have you read...." But when you talk to any successful person or achiever, you need only ask, "When did you first read Napoleon Hill's Think and Grow Rich?" As a young man, Napoleon Hill approached the business icon Andrew Carnegie to inquire how he could be successful. Instead of ignoring him or giving him some trite platitude and summarily dismissing him, Carnegie sponsored Napoleon Hill on a lifelong quest to discover the meaning of and routes to success. Andrew Carnegie introduced young Napoleon Hill to Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, Alexander Graham Bell, and many of the greatest achievers of that time. Through these meetings with successful individuals and learning how ordinary people had achieved extraordinary results, Hill began to develop the science of success and the principles behind it. One of my favorite of Napoleon Hill's enduring principles of success is the concept of going the extra mile. Going the extra mile refers to doing more than we are expected to do or performing at a higher level than would otherwise be anticipated. Going the extra mile is a priceless concept because I believe all of the great things in life can be discovered within that proverbial extra mile. Many people miss the power of this concept because they are waiting to go the extra mile until they get into their chosen field or the area of life where they are hoping to be successful. Going the extra mile is a lifelong habit that you and I need to implement today. Whether you're a student in the classroom, a young person sweeping floors or pouring coffee at a part-time job, or someone occupying an entrylevel position hoping to move up the ladder, your success begins here and now. If you can learn to develop the habit of going the extra mile in a high school classroom, on a college campus, or while sweeping floors and pouring coffee, you are well on your way to becoming a great success and making your dreams come true within the field of endeavor to which you aspire. As you go through your day today, in every activity determine what is needed, what is expected, and then go the extra mile. Today's the day!
