Doing More Than You Are Paid

In the microwave and ‘magic bullet’ world we have come to live in now, and the sneak and cheat society that has gone global, doing more than you are paid to do is something to turn a blind eye towards. I can see people on their job screaming, “You can’t pay me to do a thing more than the dollar amount agreed on.” With evil bosses, sneaky coworkers, and a world of deceitful people, why would you do more than you were paid to do? The greatest basketball player of all time did it, Michael Jordan. Underpaid most of his career, yet he continued to aspire to be the greatest and it paid off for him in many different ways.

It is a recipe for getting taken advantage of. However, if you form this habit and forget about what it does for others and think about what it does for yourself, you will soon find it does wonders for others who do not take advantage of you, which is good. However, it will do you the best of all.

While this is easier to say than do, but with practice and the continual habit formation of doing so, you will be at a new level in no time. I tend to find that when I do more for people than I was paid or even if I just did something for free (out of kindness); I tend to get rewarded for it. I don’t just mean the good feeling you get when you perform a good act. You actually get a great physical reward of some kind in the future or even immediately. So this is how you want to start; on the job if you work a job, do more than your daily output. Spend more time at work and make it productive time. Be the first one in working, and the last one out.

Before you leave, ask your supervisor if there is anything else that needs to be done before you go and be ready to do the task. This is different, but it will do two great things for you. First, you will build the habit of being a worker. This will translate into your MLM or home business when you begin one or if you currently have one. You’ll have the ability to extend the extra hand to your customers and fellow distributors or associates. You’ll be able to stay organized and get things done.

The second thing it will do for you is to make you sought after. Your boss will NOT want to lose you under any circumstances because you have become dependable and proven to be the hardest worker. When the yearly meeting all employees wait for comes, you won’t even have to argue about a raise. It will be given to you. The same thing when it comes to business and customers. People will come to work with you because they know you will do the best and most work for their earned dollar. Now with MLM, one sale can become a lifetime customer if you implement this and have a quality product.

Even if you do not have a quality product, if you decide to go to another company or your primary MLM shuts down or makes drastic changes you no longer want to be a part of; your people will follow you and your customers will if your new product meets their needs. When you establish a reputation as being a person who always gives more service and better service than you were paid, you will benefit by comparison of those around you who do not give such service. The difference between you and the competition will be so evident, that there will be an intense competition for your services or product, no matter what your life work may be.

The mere face that the average person is giving as little as they can to get by serves as your advantage. How is this done in the MLM home business world? You can offer free shipping and take the money out of your commission. You can follow up better, throw in personal bonuses or gifts for them buying with you. This is a simple case of standing above the crowd of greedy, selfish, quick-dollar business bandits out there by simply giving more than you are paid. Seize it and be it.
