The Extra Mile, There Is No Traffic Jam There

   At Climer School of Real Estate, every day, about 30% of my students arrive late for class.  About ten per cent arrive about fifteen minutes early.
   Vince Lombardi will always be one of my heroes.  It is a sign of the times to ask an audience if they know what "Lombardi Time" is.  If you don't know, you need to know. Google it.
   There is no traffic jam on the extra mile.  You will never reach extraordinary success if you don't travel on the extra mile.  Napoleon Hill and Earl Nightingale says this is obvious.
   How can you expect to be paid more than you are now if you are not doing more than you are being paid to do?  You can't.
   Some people can not figure this out.  People with a leadership personality can see it as plain as day.
   At Climer School of Real Estate, I see this all the time.
   Many of my students have a goal to "just barely pass" the Florida real estate exam.  They want to put in just enough effort to make a 75%, a passing grade.
   Back in the old days (the 20th century),when the Department of Business and Professional Regulation gave the State exam with pencil and paper, they gave you a grade whether you passed or not.  Today you only get a grade if you fail.
   I had a  student that sat a goal to make 100% on the Florida real estate exam.  This guy was a studying machine.  He had the book memorized.  He called with questions and clarification.  He made a 96%.
   I believe he enjoyed his getalicense experience more than Mr. Iwanttobarelypass.
   Get out there on the extra mile.  Do more, do better, than you are required to do. Give people extraordinary service and extraordinary results.  You will enjoy your work more and you will make more money.
