It may be your role model, your favorite author, racer, painter, et cetera. The point of all this is to inspire you to go for the life you deserve.

Before we start reading these most inspiring quotes, let me tell you something about going the extra mile in everything you do.

Okay. Thank you for giving me the time. You know what?

You must get busy doing something about going the extra mile. It’s well and good to feel as though you have changed the attitude with which you render extra service; but if that service is in truth no more than anyone else’s, you aren’t doing yourself much good.

You need to examine your co-workers and competitors to understand just what it is that will make you stand out. If there are job performance standards, exceed them. If you are fulfilling a contract, make sure you offer more than you promised.

You can’t confine extra mile service to your work alone, you must make it part of your philosophy for dealing with every person you encounter.

Imagine how others will be delighted to find that you are the type of person who not only does what is promised but even delivers more?

The true benefit of going the extra mile is in teaching yourself to strive always for better and greater achievement in all that you do. Nobody is going to take you to the front of the line unless you push your way to the front of the line. Kindly, master this.

Got it? Now I hope these quotes I gathered will fill you up with nothing but power and positivity to go for the life you deserve. Let these quotes ignite a light that will shine your way to success.

The takeaway

Look yourself in the mirror every day and tell yourself that today is a new day, what was is over, and what will be is up to me. Choose to start every day a little lighter than the day before – with less negativity, less mess, less stress, and even fewer people if you have to.

Own your day from the start or you will lose your day from the beginning. It’s very important to have self-love and to love what you do because you are going to have to spend a lot of time mastering your craft. Success doesn’t just land on your lap. You have to work, work, and work some more.
